28 In-House Lawyers in Cyprus Recognised by The Legal 500

28 In-House Lawyers in Cyprus Recognised by The Legal 500

For 30 years, The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world. The GC Powerlist is the latest publication from The Legal 500, turning its attention to the in-house function, and recognising those corporate counsel who are driving the legal business forward. The latest edition is the GC Powerlist: Greece and Cyprus, which identifies an array of the most influential and innovative in-house counsel working in the region.

The Legal 500 team took into account opinions from law firm partners and in-house counsel across Greece and Cyprus, to identify corporate counsel that have been instrumental in changing or forming opinions within their company or industry; developing brilliant technical solutions to complex issues; creating innovative structures to ensure that the in-house function is driving the business forward; or providing a business working model that other corporate counsel should follow. The team of experienced researchers assessed the nominations, speaking both to general counsel and nominating lawyers to finalise each list. TheGC Powerlist: Greece and Cyprus features not just information on why that individual has made the list, but also comments from those in-house lawyers about how they have helped shape innovation in the legal industry.

The 100 individuals included in the list were officially announced in a ceremony held on Thursday, 10th May, 2018 at the St. George Lycabettus Hotel in Athens Greece. The list is sponsored by Elias Neocleous & Co. LLC (Cyprus) and KLC Law Firm (Greece).
