Chryssafinis & Polyviou LLC


Chryssafinis & Polyviou L.L.C was established as a partnership in 1903 by the late N.G. Chryssafinis. Today it is one of the oldest and most prestigious law firms in Cyprus.

It is based in Nicosia, but it provides effective and efficient response to the needs of its clients in any part of the Republic of Cyprus.

Our Firm currently employs more than 30 lawyers, specialized in a number of fields.

Our Competition Law team comprises of Mr. Polyviou (Senior Partner), George Middleton (Partner), Constantina Mitsingas (Senior Associate) and Christina Ppekri (Associate).

Our competition law practice has been growing rapidly since Cyprus’ accession to the EU in 2004 and today is one of the largest and most experienced practices on the island.

Our firm has provided legal advice on both domestic and cross border competition issues in sectors such as banking, telecommunications, air transport and financial services/payment systems. We have also drafted, submitted and argued numerous notifications for concentrations.

In addition to the above, our Firm has also represented clients in numerous anti-trust cases before the Cyprus Commission for the Protection of Competition (“CPC”), involving alleged anti-competitive practices and/or abuses of dominant position in situations such as collusion between competitors, price fixing, refusals to supply and predatory pricing. We have acted both for complainants and also for companies under investigation, and have conducted hearings before the CPC.

Our Firm’s team also deals with administrative challenges of CPC decisions before the newly established Administrative Court (previously dealt with by the Supreme Court of Cyprus). We have acted in this regard for Banking, Insurance, Oil & Gas, Telecoms and Food & Beverage players.

Furthermore, our Firm has organized a number of competition law conferences in Cyprus with notable international speakers. Our Firm has also provided inhouse seminars to clients.
