Elias Neocleous & Co LLC, Cyprus’s largest law firm, has strengthened its presence in Western Europe with the acquisition of Jurispectrum, a niche business law firm which operates in Belgium and Luxembourg.

From the beginning of the new year, the firm’s expanded Brussels office will be headed by the experienced EU Law attorney Nikos Korogiannakis. Nikos, a member of the Athens, Brussels and Luxembourg Bar Associations, holds a postgraduate diploma in European Law from the University of Brussels and has handled more than 150 cases before the EU Court of Justice as well as numerous complex international trade disputes.

The Belgian firm, which will operate as a limited liability company under the name of Elias Neocleous & Associates, will focus on European law, including public procurement, competition, and state aid, banking and tax law, representing parties in international trade disputes and engagement with European institutions on behalf of clients.

Elias Neocleous & Co LLC’s expanded presence at the heart of the EU establishment will add new, specialist resources and enable it to provide new and improved high-level services to its international clients.

The expansion of the Brussels office is the first step in Elias Neocleous & Co LLC’s planned expansion into western Europe. The firm is planning to duly organize the office in Luxembourg in the nearest future, followed by offices in other western European capitals to complement its presence in central and eastern Europe and extend the breadth of its services to clients throughout Europe.
