Kostas Botopoulos leads our highly regarded Capital Markets practice and is himself one of the leading figures in this area in Greece. Having served as the chair of the Hellenic Capital Markets Commission (HCMC) for four years until 2015 and legal advisor to the Bank of Greece for over 17 years, his experience and expertise in this area are without rival.
During his time as chairman of the HCMC, Kostas developed a detailed understanding of the regulatory frameworks governing capital markets, both here in Greece and across Europe. He has played a leading role in many complex and groundbreaking equity capital markets transactions, insider-trading cases, buyouts, cross-border listings, market-abuse cases, disclosure and compliance requirements and regulatory matters.
Kostas also advises on complex issues related to banking regulation, having served both lenders and the regulator for many years. His experience gives our team a unique advantage in tackling matters involving sophisticated financing structures, engagement with State bodies and regulatory oversight.
As the leader of our Capital Markets practice and a former chair of the Hellenic Capital Markets Commission, Kostas has unparalleled experience and expertise in helping clients to develop and execute complex strategies through the capital markets. He has advised companies on a wide range of activities including IPOs, listings and delistings, migrations between different stock exchanges, and on engagement and compliance with Greek and EU regulatory bodies.
Alongside his work in capital markets, Kostas is an important member of our Banking & Finance team, advising a wide range of clients on complex issues relating to Greek and EU banking regulation, particularly around the emerging post-Brexit landscape and how this will affect banks and other parties.
