Overview

Civil litigation in Greece is a complex and time-consuming procedure. Despite the recent reforms of the Code of Civil Procedure, which aim to reduce the time for a case to be heard, there is still a waiting period.

Under the Greek Justice System, cases are initially brought before the Court of First Instance, where, ultimately, a ruling is rendered. If the decision is not to a party’s satisfaction, there is a right of appeal in the higher court, i.e., the Court of Appeal, where most cases are finally resolved, and, of course, the Supreme Court, where fewer petitions are submitted and very few of those accepted.

In cases of controversy, almost every aspect of private and commercial relationships could require a court hearing. Whether a matrimonial dispute, inheritance law issue, commercial or private transaction, or partnership disagreement, AGA has an enviable track record in the courtroom.

AGA is also praised for its international arbitration practice -usually under ICC or LCIA rules of arbitration-, as well as for domestic arbitration, ad hoc arbitration, a field where AGA’s lawyers are highly accomplished. Members of the firm have served as umpires, arbitrators, counselors and experts in some of the most significant disputes in Greece and abroad establishing AGA as a leading firm in arbitration.
