Firm Description:

Our people

Our firm operates as an organic whole, with each section and department collaborating harmoniously with every other. Our people are extremely well-qualified and experienced lawyers, finance experts and business consultants with a profound and comprehensive knowledge of their respective fields. As a firm, we have an excellent working knowledge of English, French, Italian and Spanish. Equipped with an all-round knowledge of the law, our experts can offer sound integrated solutions and advice in legal and business issues covering Bankruptcy and Business Restructuring Law, Commercial, Civil, Corporate and Criminal Law, both in Greece and internationally.

Our clients

Our clients include major banks, leading construction and commercial concerns, energy companies, clothing and furniture manufacturers, shipbuilders, investment groups, craft businesses and a number of investors and funds with a Greek presence. Due to the unique nature of our expertise, a number of lawyers and legal firms entrust their clients to us in cases relating to the areas in which we specialize.


Every case is unique and requires its own unique and specialized approach. We don’t apply legal ‘recipes’ and pre-formulated solutions. We methodically examine the facts in each case and bring the expertise of the whole team, in every area of the law, to bear on it. Which means our clients benefit from an effective, holistic approach to every facet of their legal affairs.


We are against the common practice of dragging legal cases out interminably. We prepare for cases intensively, act directly and methodically, and take decisions dynamically, as and when they are required. But we will never sacrifice quality on the altar of immediacy.


We place ethics above every other code of legal practice.

What Makes Us Unique

The unique quality of the services rests on three pillars:

  • Innovation:As a member of the International Bar Association (IBA) and the International Advisory Group (IAG), we attend all their crucial international seminars and conferences. This means we stay up-to-date with the latest legal and business trends before they get to Greece. Our people’s commitment to their continued professional development translates into cases won and increased prestige for our firm.
  • Thoroughness:In a volatile global business and legal landscape, our ISO 9001: 2008 certification means you can have complete confidence in our firm’s Quality Management System. The security we apply in our document management and handling is based on the most demanding international standards for effective client-lawyer communication.
  • Breaking new ground:Over the years, our legal triumphs have served to shape the Law itself. The court’s judgements in favour of our clients serve as precedents and help pave the way for new approaches to legal issues.
