On the 1st of May of 2004 the European Union welcomed Cyprus as a new Member State.
Since then, Cyprus has implemented the European Law, which constitutes a separate legal order governed by its own particular principles, by adopting it in and harmonising it with its national laws.
EU law consists of primary and secondary law. Primary law is constituted by Treaties, which are the ground rules for all EU action and basically the legal framework of the European Union. Secondary law is constituted by the legal instruments that are based on the above mentioned Treaties, i.e. Regulations, Directives, Decisions, Recommendations, Agreements e.t.c.
Our office specializes in all legal aspects of European Law, with expertise in European Consumer Law, European Private International Law and Special Issues of EU Internal Market Law. We also provide guidance as well as training in relation to the implementation of EU legislation, such as Directives (i.e. GDPR), and produce opinions and recommendations on upcoming amendments.
