In the maritime industry arbitration clauses form part of the majority of contracts. Given the advantages of arbitration many elect to arbitrate instead of litigate when disputes arise. At Elias & Co arbitrations are run on behalf of our clients guiding them through the process in addition to drafting submissions and dealing with the Tribunal on their behalf. Not only do we run arbitrations but can advise and draft appropriate arbitrations clauses applicable to specialised contracts.
When it comes to enforcing an award Elias & Co is able to assist with such enforcement in the Mediterranean and MENA region advising on the application of the New York Convention and local procedures.
In situations of litigation Elias & Co is made up English solicitors, advocates and legal consultants who are able to litigate in both Cyprus and England.
