Contracts Every day, in every aspect of our life, we deal with third parties and we enter into contracts, whether these are oral or written contracts which we are bound to abide by and we undertake both responsibilities and duties, together with our rights.
The practice of our firm in this area is the protection of our clients by preparing a detailed contract which safeguards our clients’ rights and the security needed to protect their interests is provided.
The revision of a contract is very important and through the discussion of the parties, the true intentions of the parties appear clearly as well as the real meaning that they want to capture in writing up the contract or agreement.
We can handle all types of matters relating to contracts which would also include taking legal action for the specific performance of a contract, for compensation and other claims arising from the contract, recognition of rights and obligations, and more.

Trusts There are a number of benefits to creating a trust and using the Cyprus International Trusts legal framework to do this. Please contact us for further information on this. The concept of trust law and Cypriot trusts may also be interconnected with cross border family law issues.
Our knowledge in this area of law coupled with the support offered to us from our external tax advisor, allows us to offer our clients any assistance needed in tax issues, as well as support and advice for the provision of substance for a company, as per the new guidelines that have been set down.
With the new rules for CRS, FATCA and the exchange of information between the tax authorities of countries, we need to have a proper structure which shows that the company has substance.
Cyprus remains a very attractive corporate hub and can still be utilised by clients for their businesses and investments. However, the clients will now have to show that they have substance in Cyprus which can be proven by having an office in Cyprus and employees on the pay roll.
