Scordis, Papapetrou & Co LLC is a Lawyers’ Limited Liability Company regulated by the Cyprus Law Council and the Cyprus Bar Association, providing services to clients both in Cyprus and worldwide. It was established in 1973 as a result of the merger of the practice of its founding members, Andis Scordis and Michalis Papapetrou. In 2011 the Firm merged with Adamos K. Adamides & Co, a law firm based in Limassol. In 2018 the Firm merged with Michaelides & Michaelides, also a Limassol based law firm and one of the oldest law firms in Cyprus (established back in 1922 by the late Andreas G. Michaelides in Famagusta, where it was operating until 1974).
SCORDIS, PAPAPETROU & Co (the “Firm”) now incorporates by way of merger Adamos K. Adamides & Co and Michaelides & Michaelides and, as a result, the partners, members and employees of the latter have become partners, members and employees of SCORDIS, PAPAPETROU & Co and are all located at the Firm’s new Limassol offices.
Building on the first successful merger in 2011 and the co-founding in 2012 of SPA Financial Services Ltd, a successful licensed financial services company, the latest merger further enhances the multi-faceted practice of the firms, creates synergies and joins practices, as well as lawyers and other professionals, who share a common culture and vision and a reputation for excellence.
