1065, Nicosia

DS Partners Law Firm is a boutique commercial law firm with operations in Greece and Cyprus and a focused strategy of specialization. We pride ourselves in representing a new way of thinking around the establishment and operation of modern law firms and have therefore divided the services we offer into two sections:

Core legal services which entail the provision of legal advice on a range of sectors that span from corporate and commercial to real estate and funds and financial services.

Our core legal services include:

  • Banking and finance
  • Non-performing loans
  • Financial services/ investment funds and capital markets
  • Commercial/ corporate/ M&A
  • Data protection and GDPR
  • Real estate
  • Corporate recovery and insolvency
  • Immigration law
  • Fiduciary and private client services

Alternative legal products which entail the provision of legal advisory services to innovative research and technology enterprises as well as their EU funded consortia.

Our alternative legal products include:

  • Research and innovation
  • Intellectual property
  • Digital law, disruptive technologies and E-commerce

In an effort to meet the expectations of our clients, the way we work varies depending on clients’ needs, an arrangement which is also depicted in our remuneration structure.

Our advice is of the highest quality, and we always heavily invest in understanding our clients’ organizational and operating structures, strategic approach and vision. Our experience in the sectors in which we operate helps us identify opportunities as well as the various challenges our clients face.

Last but not least, we invest for the future and in future products; all the members of our firm are forward thinking and involved in our Fintech, Regtech and Proptech initiatives that are currently being undertaken by the firm’s technology arm, DS Partners IO.

Outsourcing services: Since our clients focus more on the bottom line of their business and on developing and improving the product and services they provide, they do not want to spend time and money managing an internal legal department.

Our clients outsource all the legal work to us and focus on catching up with their competition and improving the services and products they offer. Through our outsourcing services, our clients can have access to our niche expertise, while they reduce turnaround time and achieve considerable cost savings through the reduction of overheads and the elimination of unnecessary expenditures.
