Firm Top-Tier Ranked in Energy and Oil and Gas Law

Anastasios Antoniou LLC was top tier ranked by Lawyers’ World Global Awards Top Tier Rankings 2012 for its work in Oil and Gas Law and Energy Law. Specifically, the Firm was ranked the top tier Cyprus Law Firm in Oil & Gas, Energy and Renewable Energy Sources, a prestigious accolade for the Firm and a recognition of its expertise and legal services.

The Firm is committed to legal clarity in all practice areas it is engaged to and is delighted that the high quality of its legal services are recognised in connection to the Oil and Gas and Energy industry. The fact that Cyprus has launched a second exploration licensing round for mineral deposits in its exclusive economic zone is a strong indication of how crucial Energy Law is becoming for market players active in Cyprus’ transformation as an energy hub. Cyprus has invited license applications in the next 90 days to search for mineral deposits inside 12 of 13 sections that together make up the island’s 19,700 square mile (51,000 square kilometres) exclusive economic zone off its southern coast.

Increased interest in the second round is expected, following Noble’s discovery of an estimated 5-8 trillion cubic feet (140-230 billion cubic meters) of natural gas in Block 12, the section not up for licensing in this second round. Our Firm, an award-winning Energy Law Firm is affords interested parties with legal advice, counsel and support in engaging in what seems certain to be a bright future for the energy industry in Cyprus.

Merger Control and Competition

Merger control, abuses of market dominance and unfair trading practices are areas in which we have established a leading practice. In an increasingly competitive world, regulating cartels and other anticompetitive practices is a fundamental aspect of a strong Economy.

We assist with victims of collusion in the market and advise on circumstances where a monopolistic or oligopolistic market suffers from abuse of dominance.

If your business is merging with another business, whether within Cyprus or as a foreign-to-foreign merger, or is forming a joint venture or acquiring another business, you may need clearance from the Cypriot competition authority. Learn more or contact us directly to discuss your circumstances.
