Just Law.



MAJIME (noun, Japanese)
an earnest, reliable person
who can get things done
without causing drama.

An advocate and Barrister-at-Law who prides herself on embodying the values of a Majime.

Since 2010, I live, breathe, draft, teach, and advise on, Banking & Financial Services Law.

I work alongside CySEC as its external advisor on MiFID, BRRD, Blockchain/Cryptos and FinTech.

I also sit on the National Committee for the advancement of Blockchain Technology in Cyprus.

You can consult my LinkedIn profile to see how I got here, & the Services page to see where I can take you.





I make it my business to know your business.
You can expect bespoke solutions to meet your own specific needs.
Before claiming or defending your rights, you should fully understand them.
I will break down complex legal concepts for you, without compromising the quality of my advice.
When things don't go as planned, past experience is your only comfort.
Let my decade-long, hands-on expertise assure you of that.
Hiring a professional can be intimidating.
My charges are transparent and itemised, for your ease of mind.



Different needs arise for your business at every stage of its lifecycle and that’s why it’s important to know that there is someone to meet those needs, every step of the way.

The interactive lifecycle below will show you exactly how I will assist and support you at each distinct phase.
