Russian Lawyer Alexander Rymko Joins Harneys in Cyprus


Former Hogan Lovells Partner Alexander Rymko has joined the Harneys law firm in Cyprus as International Senior Counsel in the firm’s banking and finance and investment funds and regulatory practices.

Rymko has practiced law in the financial services sector for more than 20 years, and he represents lenders and borrowers in cross-border financings across a variety of industry sectors. Prior to Harneys, Rymko spent 10 and a half years at Hogan Lovells (where he headed the Banking/Finance practice) and 18 months at Dentons Wilde Sapte (now Dentons), both in Moscow. He also has previous experience as the Head of Legal at HSBC Bank in Russia as a Legal Advisor at Credit Lyonnais Rusbank.

Rymko joins Harneys along with new Partner George Apostolou. “The combined experience of George and Alexander greatly enhances our service offering and strengthens our market-leading position as one of the top law firms in Cyprus. We are very pleased to see our firm go from strength to strength,” said Pavlos Aristodemou, Managing Partner of Harneys in Cyprus.

"Harneys has an excellent reputation,” Rymko said, "and I am extremely pleased to be cooperating with the firm during an exciting period of international growth and expansion.”

Harneys’ Cyprus office was founded in 2006 as Aristodemou Loizides Yiolitis & Co and in 2009 merged with Harneys to become the first international law firm in Cyprus. According to a Harneys’ press release, the office now has "more than 20 qualified lawyers including six partners."
