Administrative law interacts closely with almost all other areas of law and concerns matters that require any form of interaction with, or approval from, a public authority. Under Cypriot Law the decision of any public body or authority that affects the rights of an individual or a company can be challenged in the Administrative Courts. The Courts can then either confirm or annul that decision. Consequently, the right of challenge is extremely wide and extends from challenges relating to decisions taken regarding the payment or non-payment of state benefits, the promotion of civil servants in the public (and wider public) sector, to challenges relating to planning and licencing large developments, or the refusal to grant to a financial institution a licence to operate. The Firm has unique experience relating to the financial sector, including administrative challenges in relation to the Capital Control and EU Resolution Directives, including referrals to the ECJ in cooperation with internationally acclaimed foreign EU experts.
