THE Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC law firm has been included in Europe’s 100 top firms by a leading law magazine, the only Cypriot one on the list.
Legal Business, is a market-leading glossy monthly magazine for 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.
On July 6, Legal Business issued its inaugural “Euro Elite” report, its first study of the advisers redefining Europe’s legal market. The report identifies the top 100 law firms in Europe, drawn from 25 countries across the continent.
The report describes in detail the methodology and criteria used to evaluate firms and to select the final 100 firms for inclusion in the “Euro Elite”. Firms from 42 countries were evaluated, but for 17 countries no firm achieved the required standards.
The Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC was the sole Cyprus law firm included in the “Euro Elite”.
The firm has 134 lawyers, including 18 partners and nine offices.
Commenting, Andreas Neocleous, chairman of the firm, said: “Our inclusion in Legal Business’s Euro Elite 100 is an acknowledgement by a leading market observer of our hard work and our commitment to the highest standards of quality and service. I should like to thank all my partners and colleagues at the firm for their dedication and commitment, that have brought us this reward.”
He also thanked Legal Business for the recognition and expressed gratitude to all of the firm’s clients in Cyprus and abroad who entrusted the firm with their work during the difficult times of the financial crisis.
“This award is not only good for our firm, but also for our country, and for wherever we have offices,” said Neocleous.
“Our constant mission 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.”
