The need for training

After following the latest trends in the corporate sector in Cyprus, we have identified that there's a need for further training for lawyers, legal advisors and other professionals who work within the sector, who have limited knowledge and skills in Cyprus Company Law and in basic aspects of Company law and practice.

Employers such as law firms and companies who offer corporate services desire the practical training of new employees in this field of law and they believe that they benefit from the professional training and development of skills of their staff, since they will gain useful practical skills and knowledge when it comes to the incorporation and administration of companies in Cyprus, as well as in the drafting of legal documents and navigating the Department of Registrar of Companies and Official Receiver system.
