Full of energy and entrepreneurial spirit, Lellos P Demetriades Law Office shares the same vision as the companies it serves. It works hand in hand with clients to ensure that their brands enjoy 360-degree protection; it currently manages some 1,800-plus marks, plans robust enforcement campaigns and implements them flawlessly, as well as devising anti-counterfeiting plans that can stop even the most persistent of infringers in their tracks. The unit’s inventiveness is evident not only in its work, but also in its strategic partnership with IDEA, the country’s only non-profit innovation centre. At the vanguard is Achilleas Demetriades, a dual-qualified attorney in both England and Wales and Cyprus. The litigator has acted on behalf of rights holders for over 30 years, but is a dab hand at non-contentious matters too. This year, he is joined in the WTR 1000 by recently elected partner Nicoletta Epaminonda. Prosecution comes naturally to this charismatic lawyer, who also packs a punch in court. As part of her active community role, Epaminonda provides vital training to customs officials.
