|Our firm was established in 1977 and now consists of a group of lawyers whose experience ranges from two to over thirty years of practice.
The firm offers comprehensive legal services in all areas of practice. However the firm's tradition, strength and main volume of work lie in maritime, banking & finance, litigation and commercial matters in general.
In the past decade the firm's expertise developed in other areas as well and major projects were handled in such areas. These areas include general corporate work, mergers and acquisition, joint ventures, stock markets, telecommunications, derivatives, real estate, foreign investment, privatisation, competition, environmental, administrative law and taxation and family and inheritance matters.
Most of our lawyers speak several languages, hold post graduate degrees from European universities and are accustomed to quick action, where necessary, and to working as a team for major projects and to tight time schedules with regular reporting to clients.
The firm has dealt with some of the most innovative issues in Greek - and in some cases international - legal practice like international bids for mobile telephony, privatisation and listing of the Greek state organisation of telecommunications (OTE), listing of the first coastal shipping company with the Athens Stock Exchange, merger of the biggest Greek cruise company with the biggest in the world, the first merger of two passenger coastal shipping companies, listing of the first Greek interests shipping company with NASDAQ, incorporation of the first company for investment in ocean shipping, liberalisation of internal sea transport, use of cruise ships as hotels for the Athens Olympic Games 2004, arrest of taxes after the amendment of the Constitution in 2001, interpretation for the first time worldwide of the term "ship" in the International Conventions on Civil Liability for Pollution and for the International Oil Pollution Fund, and listing of shipping companies with NYSE, NASDAQ, and the AIM of the London Stock Exchange.
The firm is listed by international catalogues for lawyers as one of the top experts and main providers of legal services in Maritime Law, Banking and Finance, Insurance and Commercial matters in general.
