Areas of Practice
Typographos & Co Lawyers is a full service law firm based in Nicosia the capital of Cyprus. Our firm was founded in 1973 and since 1999 has been practicing under its current name of Typographos & Co.
Although we are a small to medium sized firm we have a broadly based practice offering a full range of legal and consulting services. We aim to offer services primarily to small and medium sized companies and to the private client at a local or international level.
The fact that we have chosen to remain relatively small enables us to be flexible, efficient, and cost effective but above all maintain a close and personal relationship with our clients.
During years of practice we have gained particular expertise in the following fields:
Corporate and Commercial
We frequently deal with most aspects of corporate law, and are experienced with private mergers and acquisitions, conducting/managing international transactions and working with teams of foreign lawyers, as well as carrying out corporate due diligence both in Cyprus and abroad.
We deal with all aspects of commercial law, from the establishment and administration of companies, whether Cypriot, foreign, on-shore or off-shore, drafting of company Articles, shareholders agreements and trading agreements, to dealing with litigation and disputes, debt recovery, and insolvency.
We have advised entrepreneurs during the startup of their business and guided them through the establishment of their business.
Tax planning and Trusts
We regularly advise clients on the advantages of the Cyprus tax system and can guide them through the formation and administration of Cyprus International Business Companies, Cyprus holding companies and Cyprus Intellectual Property Companies.
We deal with the establishment of trusts under the laws of Cyprus.
We deal with all intellectual property law issues including breach of copyright, passing off, and cases of trade mark and patent infringement, as well as registration of trademarks.
Property and Real Estate
We can advise and assist in a wide range of property matters, both commercial and residential. We can assist in the handling of property investment portfolios, developments, the sale and acquisition of properties, leases, property disputes and landlord and tenant matters. We have wide experience in all aspects of finance and mortgages of property transactions.
Civil and Commercial Litigation
Through years of practice we have gained experience in all forms of litigation, from debt recovery, employment disputes, commercial disputes, intellectual property matters, and landlord and tenant disputes to complex and heavy international cross border disputes, whether in the District courts or the Court of Appeal.
We also deal with all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, including domestic or international arbitration and mediation.
Cyprus offers one of the most attractive immigration investment programmes in the European Union. The procedure for granting either a residence permit or full citizenship under the Cyprus immigration investor programme is simple, fast and straightforward. Once certain pre-defined conditions are satisfied then the relevant permit will in most cases be granted.
We can offer comprehensive services comprising of legal and administrative assistance. We will guide, assist and advise our clients during the whole process.
Because we offer consistent, knowledgeable guidance and support based on their specific goals and objectives, clients view us as a valued business partner. This allows them to focus on the growth and success of their business, confident their legal or corporate issues will be handled by an attentive, responsive team.
In the course of our practice we have built up close working relationship with specialists, agencies and authorities and we also have working relationships with several foreign law firms.
"Know your customer" is a rule we at Typographos & Co are committed to. We recognise that each client’s legal or commercial needs vary and thus try to be agile and focus on providing services to meet our clients’ goals.
