Our firm advises on agreement for American University of Beirut new Cyprus campus

April, 2022 - Cyprus

We couldn’t be happier for our client the American University of Beirut (AUB), for the historic agreement it signed with the Municipality of Paphos for the establishment of an AUB campus in the town. AUB has been providing high-quality American-style education to students from around the world for more than 150 years and its presence in Paphos is undoubtedly of significant importance. The campus will be an integral part of AUB, with extensive interaction with the Beirut campus in the form of student exchanges, faculty exchanges, collaborative research projects, expanded online and hybrid learning opportunities.

As AUB’s legal advisor in Cyprus, our firm had a catalytic role in negotiating and drafting the agreement with the Municipality of Paphos. Co-Managing Partner George Mountis and Senior Partner Georgia Chrysostomides-Mountis were at ceremony for the signing of the agreement, and are pictured with Mayor of Paphos, Mr Phedon Phedonos and President of AUB, Dr Fadlo R. Khuri.
