Our highly praised and consistently ranked dispute resolution team has demonstrated over the time considerable advocacy skills in multiple court appearances, enabling the firm to establish a dynamic and reputable litigation practice, offering clients the best possible representation service to achieve the most feasible beneficial outcomes.

In all occasions, we consult our clients to avoid litigation and at the same achieve the desired objective, whilst, if this is not possible, we focus on their aims taking into account all inherent commercial and legal risks. We approach each new case by adopting innovative, and where necessary, aggressive strategies – tailor made – to the client, in order to resolve the matter within the shortest possible timeframe. Intentionally, we accept only a limited amount of engagements at a time in order to ensure that our unique clientele enjoy the most responsive and personalized service, equal to the standard of the leading international firms. 

The above expertise in litigation follows A.G. Erotocritou LLC's dynamic arbitration practice. Our team have been exposed and gained invaluable expertise inefficiently and effectively dealing with all aspects of the arbitration process, both at a domestic and international level, including the drafting and interpretation of arbitration clauses, the appointment of arbitrators, conducting arbitral proceedings, implementing and monitoring the enforcement of awards etc.

The firm is intentionally refusing to offer any fiduciary or company administration services (despite the vast majority of other firms in Cyprus active in the dispute resolution arena) in order to remain conflict-free and to receive instructions from underlying clients who participate in structures involving companies administered in Cyprus.

To this end, our lawyers’ acute legal/ commercial awareness, result-driven ethos, keen eye for detail and presentation of argument in a robust and persuasive manner, have been key contributory factors in meeting our clients’ particular needs and expectations.
