Cyprus offers one of the most efficient ship registration systems in the world which, coupled with the immense tax advantages ship-owning and ship management companies enjoy, makes the island the ideal destination for shipping companies from all around the world.

Our law firm has had extensive experience in this area of law. Our Admiralty & Shipping Team have followed the developments that have taken place over decades in Cyprus shipping and have helped our clients adapt to their advantage. Our law firm’s proximity to the ports of Larnaca and Limassol provide it with the extra advantage of working closely with the shipping industry and with the Cyprus Department of Merchant Shipping.

Our Team advises on an extensive range of commercial shipping contracts, ranging from time and voyage charters to fleet acquisitions and ship financing transactions. The Team advises on the whole procedure of vessel registration and on compliance with the rules and guidelines of the Cyprus Department of Merchant Shipping. We advise ship owners, ship managers, charterers, freight forwarders and maritime insurers with every legal aspect of their work on the island.
