The firm is “top tier” multi-awarded firm for consecutive years by all leading international directories, characterised as “an exception to the market where everyone

does everything”, offering advice and representation to all business areas in a large variety of industries.


The firm does not “ deal with every case”; hence, only a limited number of engagements are accepted, to ensure that clients enjoy responsiveness/service which are consistent with the leading international firms.This in turn ensures timely turnaround/delivery times, cost-effective strategies, reliability – key factors which contribute and are crucial to the firm’s overall operational efficiency.

In an effort to remain at all times conflict-free and be able to act in complex commercial disputes, the firm does not act as a trustee company by way of

provision of corporate administration services, neither it acts on behalf of local banks on fixed retainers, thus focusing on 100% legal work.


The firm/team members have been recognised as Top Tier firm for several years by Chambers HNW and Legal500 but also, by other leading directories such as I FLR, WhosWhoLegal, BestLawyers and Client Choice/ILO.

Model - team 

The firm has rigorously implemented a business model similar to that of leading U.S. and U.K. law firms; hence, it allocated significant resources in recruiting and maintaining talented lawyers (with prior experience in leading London law firms). All team members are US or UK graduates, have outstanding academic credentials and possess exceptional research, communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills.

Practice areas 

They comprise dispute resolution, financial services and products, corporate and m&a, banking and finance, corporate restructurings and insolvency, real estate, data protection, tax planning and private client professional services.


As a result of the firm’s reputation and expertise, A.G. Erotocritou LLC is proud to count some of the largest international law firms (including several magic circle firms),

governments, international banking institutions and conglomerates amongst our clients. On a domestic level, we are also advising some of the most prominent
