In an ever-more litigious world and with strengthening regulation across many sectors, we support corporate clients across a wide range of civil, commercial, and compliance-related disputes. Alongside this strength, we offer expertise and experience in defending criminal cases brought against individual executives and entrepreneurs.

We have expanded our team to better support clients in this increasingly important area and the arrival of Harry Karampelis as partner has significantly extended our capabilities, both in terms of criminal experience and also civil and commercial, where he is a published and respected expert. Wherever possible our focus is to deploy the most appropriate dispute-resolution strategy to achieve the best outcome for our clients. However, where litigation and direct court action is appropriate or unavoidable, our team has the experience and expertise to provide robust and decisive advocacy.

Litigation of any sort is a stressful business for clients. We aim to relieve as much of this pressure as possible, providing a proactive service, rapid turnaround of documents and opinions, and clear jargon-free advice based on a close understanding of the most up-to-date legislation. Our knowledge of the Greek legal system and the way different courts, commissions and authorities operate enables us to tailor our advice and interventions to achieve the best results for clients. We work closely with independent authorities and regulators across a number of sectors and can support clients in understanding how to approach them.

Harry’s book “Adjudicating moral damages from an economic analysis of law perspective” is one of the leading texts on the calculation of moral damages. Harry also has a strong background in gaming and betting legislation and its application and enforcement, and is able to provide extensive consulting services on regulatory and compliance matters to betting and gaming operators active in the Greek market. Our civil and commercial dispute experience focuses on a number of key areas:

  • IP disputes

  • commercial law – contractual obligations and compensation claims
  • distribution agreements – drafting contracts and defending actions including goodwill compensation claims and terminations for cause
