We are delighted to announce that Elias Neocleous & Co LLC has recorded its best performance to date in the Legal 500 Europe, Middle East & Africa 2020 rankings: confirming our position as by far the pre-eminent law firm in Cyprus. Not only were all departments highly rated, but a record number of our lawyers were individually lauded. A level of success which was unmatched by any other law firm on the island.
It is particularly gratifying to note that both Elias Neocleous (Commercial, Corporate and M&A, Tax) and Costas Stamatiou (Maritime and Admiralty) were elevated to ‘Hall of Fame’ status becoming two of only four such rated lawyers in Cyprus. ’Elite’ ranking status was also accorded to partners Nicholas Ktenas and Chrysanthos Christoforou.
Honours were not, however, restricted to the most senior members of our firm. Two of our partners were recognized as ‘Next Generation Partners’ and six of our associates won praise as ‘Rising Stars’. Our strength in depth was also acknowledged in the commentary accompanying the rankings which included recommendations for 17 separate lawyers who, according to our clients were, ‘very, knowledgeable, hardworking, and practical’.
The Legal 500 rankings are an authoritative guide to the expertise of lawyers and cover the widest range of practice areas of any such text. Rankings are based on a comprehensive research process which examines actual performance in a year and includes extensive contact with clients and other interested parties.
Managing Partner, Elias Neocleous commented that “We are proud of all our staff, they have worked hard to produce such a good outcome for the firm. We would also like to thank our clients for their support. In their words, ‘The team is very well positioned in Cyprus and well aware of all the trends in the environment where changes are happening fast. It also has a deep knowledge combined with an ability to produce tailored solutions, which is key to its success.’ We intend to repay their support for us by continuing to strive for perfection in everything that we do for them.”
