IFLR 1000 Client Feedback 2019
We have been assisted by Elias Neocleous in the context of capital markets transaction. Mr Demetris Roti was the partner in charge of the matter. We were very satisfied by the work of Mr Roti and his team as well as their ability to work towards tight deadlines
IFLR 1000 Client Feedback 2019
I recently completed the sale of my house in Cyprus with Elias Neocleous & Co LLC and I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your Property lawyer who handled the matter. Her professional, calm and measured approach was amazing and really reassured us when things were not that straight forward. As a solicitor of some 40 + years in the private sector I must say that I rarely came across a young lawyer with such a combination of professional and personal qualities. This lawyer is a real asset to your firm!
