Overview

KYRIAKIDES GEORGOPOULOS (KG) Law Firm is known for:

  • being the only Greek law firm with a sustainable dedicated Energy, Utilities & Infrastructure team;
  • engaging exclusively in energy related projects;
  • ability to cover all aspects of the sector (regulatory, M&A, project finance, project agreements);
  • support to international companies active in the energy sector;
  • acting for Greek State and related State-owned companies;

KG's Energy & Infrastructure team besides its track record (e.g. has been involved in the establishment, development, commissioning and financing of more than 3.000 MWs of electricity generated by renewable projects, thermal power plants and combined cycled gas fired power plants, continues to maintain a leading position in the energy industry for legal services, even though the number of projects which reach the stage of commissioning have decreased significantly during the last years comparing to the previous years (i.e. before 2009) due to the financial crisis in Greece and the hesitance of the banking system (lenders) to provide financing to the sponsors on a non-recourse basis. 

The team is well respected by the market and is approached regularly by the majority of the international law firms, since the skills which have been developed and the team work spirit demonstrated over several projects, have been well appraised.
