Elias Neocleous & Co LLC – 2022, A year in review (part 1)

At Elias Neocleous & Co LLC all our staff are committed to our core values of professional excellence, innovative thought and service to Cyprus and our community. Here is a taste of how we have tried to live these values in 2022.

Professional Excellence

As a firm we seek excellence at both a team and an individual level. We aim to recruit and retain the best individuals in all aspects of our operations and with the aid of our Human Resources team, ensure that they perform to their maximum capability. This is how we performed in 2022.

Independent rating houses

The year started and ended on a high note. The year opened with Elias Neocleous & Co LLC being named the Citywealth IFC Awards ‘Firm of the Year – Cyprus and Malta’. It closed with our Tax Team  winning the ITR EMEA Cyprus Tax Firm of the Year Award and a powerful performance by our Restructuring Practice cementing the inclusion of Elias Neocleous & Co LLC in the GRR100 elite for the fourth consecutive year. We were particularly proud of the Tax Team since this is the first time that the title has not been awarded to a Big 4 accounting firm. However, it was not alone in reaching impressive heights. Other awards and ratings achieved in the year included:

Ultimately, the most important judges of our quality as a legal firm are you, our clients and we would like to thank you for your continued faith in us throughout the year.
