E-Business

Use of the internet as a method of carrying out e‑commerce activities is widespread in Cyprus and an increasing number of people and businesses are coming to appreciate the benefits of using Cyprus, a bridge between Europe and the Middle East, as a basis for establishing local and international business companies (formerly known as offshore companies) for the purposes of carrying out such activities. As the largest and only truly departmentalised Cyprus law firm, Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC can offer advice and assistance on everything needed to establish and maintain an e-business in Cyprus, from regulatory advice to data protection.

The lawyers in our e-business law team specialise in all areas of Cyprus law which are relevant to e-business such as IT aspects of all practice areas, cryptography, electronic signatures, regulation of electronic payments, data protection and security, direct marketing and intellectual property as well as consumer protection issues including the sale of goods, unfair contract terms in consumer contracts, unfair trade practices, product safety and liability, consumer warranties, long distance contracts, and rights and obligations under electronic contracts.

We also take pride in having contributed to the development of the current legislative framework for e‑commerce in Cyprus, having acted as Cyprus legal consultants in the project for the formulation of a national strategy and legal framework for an electronic commerce study for the Cyprus government Planning Bureau. In this project we advised on all legal matters relevant to e‑commerce and consumer protection under Cyprus law for the purposes of harmonisation with EU law and implementation of an appropriate legal framework for e‑commerce.
