Areas of Practice
Democritos Aristidou & Co Law Firm is rich with history, ethos and character. The firm was organized as a partnership and operated as such since 1971. Although the firm has matured from its beginnings, its character is still true to the dreams and visions of its founder Democritos Aristidou.
Democritos Aristidou is one of the most experienced, talented and respectful litigators in Cyprus. In his 35 years of career he has conducted more than 1500 hearings before all Courts of Cyprus and successfully tried a considerable amount of appeals before the High Court of Cyprus, the supreme court of the country. He has extensively been involved in cases involving complex and complicated issues of corporate law, corporate governance, shareholders agreements, international corporate tax law, cross border commercial and banking, employment contracts, commercial contracts, company liquidations and dissolutions, land and construction disputes and arbitrations. He has also been involved in a considerable number of cases involving issues of land and other immovable property ownership and participated in proceedings before the Land Registry Office representing either the interests of seller/s or buyer/s. That is why he is fairly considered to be on the top of the list of corporate and land law lawyers-litigators. His combined education, common law and civil law (continental law), together with his organizing skills, his clear-sighted way of viewing things, his negotiating talent, his high ethical standards, and his strong belief in “reputation before revenue”, proved to be the ticket to his recognition as a leader litigator in Cyprus.
