Our firm is the contributor of the Cyprus chapter in the Chambers & Partners Litigation 2022 Global Practice Guide. The new Litigation 2022 guide provides the latest legal information on litigation funding, initiating a lawsuit, pre-trial proceedings, discovery, injunctive relief, trials and hearings, settlement, damages and judgment, appeals, costs, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), arbitration, and the impact of COVID-19.
The Guide highlights the fact that throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, globalisation has continued to create new markets, new technologies (such as the widespread adoption of e-commerce and videoconferencing), new competition and, with them, increased demand for effective mechanisms to resolve international disputes. At the same time, there is a rising tide of disquiet against free trade and globalisation. The COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated this disquiet. It has brought an unprecedented level of disruption to the global economy and world trade. This has prompted governments around the world to turn to protectionist policies. International litigation now reflects these contradictory trends.
Partner Victoria-Zoi Papagiannis and associate Christodoulos Christodoulou from our Litigation, Arbitration & Mediation team are the authors of our firm’s chapter in the Guide, and provide the information on Litigation in Cyprus.
