1 Status: February 2010 List of LAWYERS AND REGULATORY ORGANIZATIONS in the Republic of Cyprus The following information is based on information that was available to the embassy at the time of writing. The information and in particular the naming of lawyers and other legal advisers is non-binding and without guarantee. The client is responsible for all costs and fees in connection with a given mandate. Further information on legal advice in Cyprus can be found in the embassy leaflet on prosecution in Cyprus. I. General information In principle, all lawyers are admitted to all courts in Cyprus. The term "notary" does not exist in Cypriot law. A lawyer is only required in criminal cases if the offenses involved have a prescribed range of penalties of more than 6 months; in such cases, a public defender is appointed upon request, whose costs are borne by the state in the event of proven need. There is no compulsory lawyer in civil matters. Legal aid can be granted under certain conditions and otherwise depends on the decision of the court in the individual case. Due to the differences between the local and the German legal system, it is recommended that you always consult a lawyer in legal disputes. There is a lawyer's fee schedule. Notwithstanding this, fee agreements can be made. If there is a court decision, the losing party has to bear the costs. It is advisable to make a written agreement on the amount of the fee before placing the mandate. There are no other institutions that offer legal advice or deal with prosecution. Legal advice is reserved exclusively for lawyers who have to work full-time in this function. It must be expected that civil trials in Cyprus will take longer than in Germany. All information in this leaflet is based on the knowledge and assessments of the embassy at the time the text was written. However, no guarantee can be given for the completeness and correctness, in particular due to changes that have occurred in the meantime. The client is responsible for all costs and fees in connection with the mandate issued.
