LITIGATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Our litigation and dispute resolution practice is the largest in Cyprus and has an unmatched record of success in helping clients of all kinds to assert and defend their legal rights in a timely manner, at least possible risk. Our clients range from global businesses and organisations to private individuals, and we provide them all with top quality service and advice.
Our highly qualified and experienced specialists focus on giving clear, effective support and guidance to our clients, however complex and difficult the dispute may appear. They have the expertise and experience to advise on and deal with the largest and most complex issues, and the resources, knowledge and strategic thinking to help clients advance their interests in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. We have been involved in most of the largest and highest-profile disputes heard by the Cyprus courts in recent years.
We are also experienced in both domestic and international arbitration, and we choose the most appropriate method of resolution for every dispute we are involved in. Recognising the protracted timescales for actions in the Cyprus courts, we focus on putting in place effective interim measures to safeguard our clients’ interests.
Our dispute resolution department is divided into four specialist teams, each headed by a highly experienced partner:
- Team 1, headed by Antonis Glykis, deals with traffic accidents, torts, employers’ liability, personal injury claims, medical negligence claims, insurance claims and disputes, debt collection and criminal matters.
- Team 2, headed by Anna Demetriou, deals with banking and finance disputes, bankruptcy and insolvency law. The team also deals with family law issues including divorce, separation agreements, custody disputes, maintenance and lump sum settlements, property provisions and other ancillary matters.
- Team 3, headed by Chrysanthos Christoforou, deals with cross-border litigation and in particular with company and partnership disputes, trusts, white collar litigation, fraud, asset tracing, breach of business contracts, marine and admiralty claims and in general with all international trade and business disputes. This team also handles all types of urgent injunctive relief cases such as ex parte applications for receivership and Anton Piller orders, freezing injunctions, Norwich Pharmacal and disclosure orders.
- Team 4, headed by Christos Melides, deals with defamation cases, intellectual property matters, immovable property and construction disputes and all matters of constitutional and administrative law.
