Firm Overview:

We help clients anticipate the relevant issues and respond appropriately, aiming to be recognised as their trusted advisor and advocate.

In the last few years and following a radical tax reform, many rules in Greece have changed to better reflect international patterns, whilst tax and criminal tax litigation increased exponentially. Our services reflect the new reality and include, apart from tax advisory and litigation, alternative tax dispute resolution support (i.e. initiating of a competent authority procedure for the elimination of double taxation), criminal tax proceedings and remedy proceedings against the enforced collection of tax assessments. At the same time we monitor the international developments so that we anticipate what’s next in risks and opportunities for our clients.

We have extensive experience in advising clients in relation to business reorganisations and supply chain restructurings, domestic and cross-border M&As (corporate reorganisations, acquisition and financing structuring as well as tax and legal due diligence), transfer pricing compliance reviews and controversy management.

We have dealt in several occasions with legal and tax issues pertaining to prominent market participants of the oil & gas, pharma, consumer products and real estate sectors.
