Aristides Economides & Co is a general law practice. The Economides family tradition in law runs for four generations already. The origins draw from Aristides Economides, a former Judge in the town of Serres in Northern Greece at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. The practice commenced in Serres by his son John Economides, a lawyer specializing in civil law who also became Chairman of the Serres Law Society. After the passing of John Economides and WWII, his son Aristides J. Economides who specialized in criminal law re-established the practice in Athens in 1960 and became Deputy Chairman of the Athens Law Society. After the passing of Aristides J.
