Welcome to Lambadarios Law Firm, a leading Athens-based legal practice with a reputation for tackling complex and challenging work.

Founded in 1863 and now under the stewardship of managing partner Constantinos Lambadarios, we have evolved from a family firm into a thoroughly modern, international practice with a dynamic, problem-solving mindset, while retaining the traditional qualities of respect, integrity and personal service.

With a number of top-ranked partners and a highly skilled team of lawyers, we are recognized as one of the leading Greek firms in all of our key practices – M&A, Banking & Finance, Project Finance, Ligation & Dispute Resolution, Real Estate, Energy, Capital Markets, and TMT and Intellectual Property in Greece. Within these fields, we have advised on many of the most significant transactions and commercial developments in Greece’s recent past, from privatizations of state-owned utilities and major energy and infrastructure projects to cases involving emerging internet law and anti-trust actions.

Our vision

To operate at the leading edge of our profession, enjoying the special trust of important clients and the recognition of our peers, while offering joy to the members of our team.

Our values

We are very proud of our long history and heritage. It takes a special set of individuals, a strong culture and a clear vision to stay at the top end of the market for more than 150 years. Over that time, we have learned what kinds of behaviors work and deliver greatest value.

But we are not complacent. The legal market in Greece continues to face new challenges and to evolve rapidly, particularly with regards to the issues generated by the proliferation of digital media and new forms of intellectual property. At Lambadarios, we embrace this change and innovation, and constantly seek new and better ways to help our clients achieve their goals.

In doing this, we are guided by a set of values or principles that have evolved over many years and which have proved to benefit our clients, strengthen our firm, and bring reward to our work as lawyers. These values are non-negotiable – they define who we are and how we behave:

  • Respect: We must always be listening to each other and recognize and value our colleagues and clients’ different views and perspectives, even on subjects where we see ourselves as the expert.
  • Effectiveness: When someone makes contact, our response should be delivered on time and to an exceptionally high standard, regardless of any internal or external factors, so that our contribution supports and expedites our clients’ goals, rather than obstructing them.
  • Positive thinking: We maintain the conscious belief that a solution can be found for every issue, and it is up to us to use our expertise and innovation to find it.
  • Trust: As a firm to our clients and as colleagues to each other, we must inspire trust and then live up to it. Without our clients and colleagues’ trust, we cannot innovate, lead or truly excel.
  • Integrity: In cases where there is a conflict of ethical principles or where a dilemma arises about a potential conflict of interest, principles should always prevail. Our reputation, forged over decades, is among our most valuable assets and we must be vigilant in protecting it.

Our history and heritage

Lambadarios Law Firm was founded in 1863 by Constantine Lambadarios.

Since then the firm has grown and flourished under successive generations of family leadership including Constantine and Basil Lambadarios, and Nondas and Dimitri Lambadarios. Today, under managing partner Constantinos Lambadarios, it is widely recognized as one of the leading commercial firms in Athens, supporting major domestic and international clients in the landmark deals and projects that are reshaping Greece as a vibrant, stable, modern economy.
