Our team, led by Managing Partner Elias Neocleous and supported by Senior Legal Counsel Michael Pelosi, Partner Demetris Roti, and Senior Associate Christos Kafouris, in collaboration with various multi-disciplinary departments within the firm, provided inter alia regulatory, corporate and capital markets advice to Premier Energy PLC, a Cypriot registered entity.
