BANKING & COMPLIANCE

Having successfully exited the EU/IMF-backed bail-out programme, the public finances of the Republic of Cyprus continue to strengthen and the economy is being restored to growth.

The Firm provides ongoing legal support to a number of Cypriot systemic banks, as well as to individual and corporate clients.
