Corporate and commercial: trends and issues – Cyprus


14 December 2020

Corporate & Commercial Cyprus

Corporate and commercial law has been a major focus for companies worldwide, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to affect contracts. There has also been an increased focus on board composition (particularly with regard to gender balance) and directors’ duties and liability.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the three main corporate and commercial issues affecting their jurisdiction in 2020 and what we should look out for in 2021.

In 2020 the Cypriot corporate world was shaken up by various global events, including the COVID-19 pandemic; however, it has remained resilient. Looking ahead to 2021, expected trends include the use of more efficient contract terms, more balanced gender diversity on corporate boards and the slow but certain growth in disruptive technologies which can support businesses and help corporate practices to evolve.

In the below video, Stella Koukounis discusses these matters and the potential impact that they may have on companies in Cyprus.
