We have been advising on foreign direct investment (FDI) transactions for over 70 years and our expertise in this area is unrivalled.
From representing the lenders to Aristotle Onassis Olympic Airways in the 1960’s on the first-ever aircraft financing to the latest privatization effort, in which we represented the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund on the disposal of 5% of the share capital of Hellenic Telecommunications Organization to Deutsche Telecom, we have helped overseas clients to invest in Greece. We are experienced in working with international clients, delivering the highest standard of legal service in our market and maintaining strong relationships with international counsel in key jurisdictions such as the UK, Germany, France, Italy and the US. We have advised on investments into the Greek market on a diverse range of transactions and joint ventures and have particular experience in large, cross-border FDI for major corporates, including Goodyear Tires, Dow Chemical, Heineken and Procter & Gamble.
Drawing on the expertise of lawyers from multiple practice and sector groups, including specialists in bank lending and capital markets financing, we ensure that our clients benefit from a range of perspectives and local insights before we recommend a finance solution.
The value of this approach and the quality of our practice are reflected both by the longstanding relationships we have established with our investment clients, including many of the world’s leading investors, and by our repeated top-tier rankings in M&A and the award of Greek Law Firm of the Year by Chambers and Partners.
