Cyprus, an EU Member State and a Common Law jurisdiction, is a jurisdiction offering a stable, reliable and business-friendly legal framework. A genuine maritime and shipping nation, an ideal asset holding and investment planning jurisdiction with an extensive network of double tax treaties and a key player in the region’s energy map, Cyprus’ legal and regulatory regimes attract the attention of a wide, multinational audience.

Legal advice, counsel and opinion in Cyprus is a regulated activity, reserved exclusively for qualified advocates that are full members of the Cyprus Bar Association. Also exclusively reserved for advocates is the formation of legal entities, the registration of vessels, intellectual property work and, inevitably, litigation before Cyprus courts.

Cyprus Law Guide is therefore accessible subject to the terms of use. Cyprus Law Guide is an initiative of Lexcess, an online legal solutions provider.
