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. The firm also stands out for its arbitration practice (international and domestic; institutional and ad hoc). Members of the firm have served as umpires, arbitrators, counsellors and experts in some of the most significant disputes in Greece and abroad.
