Legal Business is the market-leading glossy monthly magazine for senior decision-makers in the UK and global legal market. Published ten times a year, the magazine reaches thousands of senior lawyers at major commercial firms across the UK and key financial centres of Europe, Asia and the US. It is published by Legalease, the publishers of the respected “Legal 500” rankings.
In 2016 Legal Business introduced its “Euro Elite” report, its study of the law firms redefining Europe’s legal market. Following thorough research and analysis into more than 300 of the largest law firms in Europe, the report identifies the top 100, assessed not only on size, but also on quality, focusing on independent law firms, rather than the local offices of international firms.
In the third “Euro Elite” report, published on 21 June 2018, Elias Neocleous & Co LLC is again the sole Cyprus law firm included in the “Euro Elite”, repeating the distinction it achieved in 2017.
Firms from more than 40 countries were evaluated, but for half of the countries, including many larger countries, no firm achieved the required standards.
Commenting on the award, Elias Neocleous, chairman of the firm, said, “Our inclusion in Legal Business’s Euro Elite 100 is an acknowledgement by one of the most respected market observers of our hard work and our commitment to the highest standards of integrity, quality and service. I should like to thank all my partners and colleagues at our firm for their dedication and commitment, which have brought us this recognition.
On behalf of everyone at the firm I should also like to thank Legal Business, and to express our gratitude to all of our clients in Cyprus and abroad who have supported us and entrusted us with their work, and who continue to support our new firm on our journey of creation and innovation. This award is not only good for our firm, but also for our country. Our constant aim is to provide services of the highest quality and to promote Cyprus as a world-class financial centre of the highest repute, attracting foreign investment and creating economic activity and employment for our citizens.”
