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!
Property Client
