I was trying to find out a bit more about the rules and red tape of residents from the UK and third-world countries moving to Cyprus and was highly recommended to meet Antigoni. It was the greatest of pleasures to meet up with Antigoni, who I quickly realised is one of those people who has an extreme passion for her chosen career.
I asked her how she got into law? Antigoni said, “originally I was into sports, during my school days I was playing football for our local ladies’ team Enosis, in Paralimni, but, after some encouragement from my parents, I decided to enter into law school”.
The Early Days
Antigoni continued; “I decided to study Law, at The University of Nicosia, and then in 2018 I attained my Masters of Laws of the De Montfort University, UK, specialising in Sports Law and Practice”, she laughed, saying, “women can do a lot of things” … I have to agree there! … she ended “my main goal was always to become a good lawyer which is hard and it takes many sacrifices and hard work, as a woman I need to balance motherhood and my career!”
Once she attained her degree Antigoni worked briefly for a leading solicitors in Nicosia. Her love for sport continued; sitting on the administrative board of the Cyprus National Volleyball Association. Antigoni was called to the Cyprus Bar Association in 2015 and she is also a registered Mediator and Arbitrator at Cyprus Consumer Center since 2020.
Antigoni and her highly experienced team specialise in Sports Law, but their daily activities include many aspects like Contracts Law, Citizenship Law, Family Law, Land Registry and Property Law, and everything from uncleared cheques to traffic offenses … in addition Antigoni’s office is attending several seminars every year, and helping many clients with problems related to Properties & Contracts with astounding results! … Click on their Website for a full list of services
Following Brexit, with the UK now treated as a third-world country putting them in a new rules situation Antigoni’s speciality shines through. She explained “Migration Laws have changed for UK Citizens wishing to purchase a property with title deeds. Here you have to get approval from the Council of Ministers through The District Administration Offices and in 2023 even more documents regarding Migration Procedures for the registry of UK citizans will be required to be completed.
Antigoni is extremely experienced in both Cyprus law and speaks English, Greek, and Basic French, and is currently studying Italian. They have represented international clients from the UK and other third-world countries.
As we concluded, Antigoni said “we aim to provide the highest standard of service and commitment by being completely passionate about law” … that said it all!
