The United States experience.
The founding partner of the firm, Michael Kyprianou, worked alongside a US law firm in the landmark case of the Republic of Cyprus and the Autocephalous Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus against Goldberg and Feldman Fine Arts Inc. The case was heard before the United States District Court of Indiana, Indianapolis and at its conclusion the judge ordered the return to Cyprus mosaics (4th-century rare artifacts) that had been stolen from a church in Cyprus.
Michael Kyprianou LLC also advised for a specific project the American Embassy in Cyprus. This, notes its managing partner Menelaos Kyprianou (photo), is in itself testimony of the very high standards of service and ethics that we try to adhere to.
The firm has also represented major US clients in the past in their business dealings in Cyprus whilst presently it is working with the Chicago office of DLA Piper on an important cross border litigation case.
