Dispute Resolution:
3 partners, 4 fee earners
The firm stands out for its leading expertise in dispute resolution and for its international arbitration practice. The senior partners of the firm in particular have been serving as umpires, arbitrators, counsellors and experts for more than thirty years in some of the most important disputes in Greece and abroad. The firm has a strong reputation for international arbitration, but also regularly undertakes civil and commercial litigation work. The litigation team of lawyers of the firm has discreetly handled some of the weightiest cases ever presented before the Greek and European Courts of Justice. In recent years the firm has acted in a large number of cases involving product liability, commercial agreements, torts and competition issues, some of which are considered as landmark cases. Litigation on private matters of ultra-high-net-worth individuals (like divorce, inheritance, control or distribution of assets) also absorbs much of the attention of the dispute resolution team partners.
