CORPORATE AND COMMERCIAL
Elias Neocleous & Co LLC is a leading corporate and commercial practice with an enviable reputation founded on its client base, international experience, and extensive in-depth expertise in a wide range of business sectors. The department has a particular focus on complex, high-value cross-border projects with demanding timetables, and has an unmatched track record of success in dealing with them.
Cyprus’s strategic location and excellent business infrastructure, with a benign tax regime and an extensive network of double-taxation treaties, make it an ideal base for non-EU companies seeking to enter the EU market, and for EU and third-country companies seeking to broaden their horizons, especially with regard to Central and Eastern Europe. We have a network of offices in the principal destinations for investment from Cyprus, staffed by locally-qualified lawyers who are experienced in doing business there. We also have extensive experience in assisting overseas companies to invest and do business in Cyprus.
Our proven transactional skills and our multidisciplinary expertise, with specialists in competition law, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, financing, employment, financial services and taxation, allow us to deal with all the issues which may arise in the course of any assignment in a timely and cost-effective way. Our staff do not have to learn on the client’s time, and we get things right first time, which saves our clients time and money.
We provide bespoke advice to clients on formation, acquisition and dissolution of companies and partnerships in Cyprus and abroad, management and domiciliation services and assistance with day-to-day commercial matters, and assistance and support with all corporate, mergers and acquisitions and securities matters including:
- public and private mergers and acquisitions, takeovers, demergers and disposals
