Harneys’ regulatory team advises clients in Cyprus and other jurisdictions in relation to all aspects of AML compliance and terrorist financing regimes. Our economic sanctions practice advises on all aspects of sanctions law in Cyprus and we also are experienced in the provision of bespoke products to assist clients with applications to governmental agencies and authorities. We work regularly and positively in this area with the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office, HM Treasury, the European External Action Service and the United Nations.
We maintain excellent relations with the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) and advise on the full scope of CySEC regulation. Moreover, we frequently opine as a trusted resource on the implementation of key EC law in this area including the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and the Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities Directive (UCITS).
Our experts are ideally placed to advise on the full scope of financial services law from mutual funds and investment business to banking and fiduciary services, while always maintaining a responsive, client-minded approach. Legal 500 wrote that our Cyprus team has “unshakeable dedication” while giving “the highest standard of advice.”
