Harneys’ team of corporate and commercial lawyers in Cyprus is regarded as a trusted resource for many of the world’s largest companies, using unparalleled expertise and technical skill to successfully execute complex deals on a regular basis. 


Our corporate and commercial division offers a diverse suite of services tailored specifically to each client’s needs. We advise companies in relation to listing on major stock exchanges such as New York, Singapore and London and also assist with substantial private equity transactions. These include management buy outs, public to private transactions, closed end private equity funds and a variety of venture capital deals. Harneys has decades of combined expertise in Cyprus and other jurisdictions, giving us unrivalled expertise in negotiating cross border joint venture deals. Additionally, we advise on mergers and acquisitions for both sellers and buyers as well as on reorganisations.
We continue to represent a broad range of clients who regularly take advantage of the benefits Cyprus has to offer. Most recently, we handled the TNK-BP transaction, the largest Western investment in Russia. We also led the €1.2 billion acquisition of Reso Guarantia by AXA in Russia.
As the only international multi-jurisdictional law firm in Cyprus, our clients know that Harneys has the experience and internal infrastructure to provide unmatched results. Not surprisingly, Chambers Europe described Harneys Cyprus as “an office of the highest calibre from the top level to the trainees” in its most recent corporate/commercial rankings.
