IN HER OWN WORDS

RESUME

I was born into a family of diverse backgrounds and outstanding talents, a constant source of inspiration to me.

Raised within such a family, it was natural that I should make my own journey into creative and business adventures. After obtaining my master’s degree in Commercial Law at the University of Bristol with honours, I gained experience in the office of the Attorney General of Cyprus, and in leading law firms. I was admitted to the Cyprus Bar Association, ranked second in the bar exams.

The family business soon attracted me, and after a year I joined the Lyssiotis Group of Companies, as well as establishing my own law firm, Vera Lyssiotis LLC. I became a partner in my father’s Trademark Bureau, specializing in Intellectual Property; My thesis on Copyright Infringement was published on copyright System in Cyprus and in England in «Τhe Cyprus Law review» , December 1990, issue No 32. I became very active in the family business dealing in pharmaceuticals, vaccines and medical disposables as well as brand name cosmetics, perfumery and sunglasses.

Simultaneously I worked with my amazing mother, Miriam Lyssiotis, in her fashion business, accompanying her on purchasing trips to Paris, Milan, and New York. As my mother gradually withdrew, I took over the administration of Tiffany fashion boutique in Nicosia and founded the highly successful Tiffany Concept Store in Limassol.

Details of all my activities, and relevant testimonials, can be found in my PORTFOLIO.

I love to innovate, to organise, to link the right people together, to travel and make new connections. I have built a wide network of loyal clients, customers and contacts inside and outside Cyprus, and am always on the lookout for new challenges, new projects to develop and bring to fruition, new concepts to introduce to the expanding Cyprus marketplace.

In my personal life I am passionate about art and photography, family and friends, travelling and our four (4) dogs!

TESTIMONIALS

I have known Vera (and her family) for years. She is a highly respected member of our community. Her business acumen has led her to develop various successful businesses throughout the years which have certainly helped sustain our city centre’s ecosystem during very challenging times. Her reputation and past successes were instrumental in creating an enviable network of associates local and foreign. She is intelligent, professional and inventive, while always enthusiastic. Highly recommended.

Hi everyone. It is my privilege to recommend Vera Lyssiotis, an excellent Cypriot lawyer. Vera avails of a great number of communication channels all over the island and nothing is impossible to her. I have collaborated with her back when I was the manager of AMO (currently Abbott Medical Optics) and I cannot praise enough her work ethics and professional skills. For me, Vera is the ideal business partner. If what you’re aiming for is to penetrate the market of Cyprus, do not hesitate to contact her. She has both the qualifications and contacts to help you acquire all you need to succeed.

TESTIMONIALS

As designer and owner of Sara Roka fashion brand, I have many stores that I have a great relationship with but only a few are extra special and Vera from Tiffany Boutique is one of those. I thank her for believing in me when not so many were willing to take a risk with a new brand. I’m so happy that before COVID I was able to visit Cyprus and Vera hosted a VIP cocktail in my honor. I’m lucky to have Vera as a client but mostly a friend and I hope for many years to come. I can’t wait until everything is back to normal again and have fun evenings with Vera again in Milan or Cyprus. Vera is constantly organizing events or expanding her business, she’s never still. I admire her also as a female entrepreneur. Brava Vera, I really wish all the best comes your way you deserve it 😘

TESTIMONIALS

I have known Vera since 2008 when she began to visit the Ministry of Health to register new pharmaceutical products or deposit tenders with the Ministry, which she was required to do as part of her business on behalf of leading pharmaceutical companies. I was impressed by her detailed knowledge of the products she was representing, her diligence in conducting the necessary official procedures, and her warm, attractive personality which made our dealings so much easier, and over time we developed a deep mutual respect and regard for each other. I’m happy to say that although we are no longer required to meet for the former reasons, we have retained our connection and it is always a pleasure to see her.
