It is with immense pride and pleasure that we announce the appointment of our partner, Christia Middleton, to the position of District Judge in Cyprus effective 1 July 2020. Christia has been an integral part of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution department at Elias Neocleous & Co LLC and its legacy firm for more than ten years. Therefore, whilst we celebrate her success, for us her departure is also tinged with a little sadness. We are confident, however, that her work ethos, her dedication to the pursuit of justice and, her extensive experience in civil law, criminal law and family law will prove to be an asset not only to Cyprus courts but also to the country as a whole. We wish her every success in this new stage of what has already been an impressive career.
