Firm Overview

Bernitsas Law is a market leader in the provision of commercial law services in Greece and one of the largest firms in the country. We count industry frontrunners, listed and private companies, supranational, global and national entities and corporations, and small and medium sized enterprises from all the major industry sectors among our clients.


A Focus on Solutions & Service

We provide sound and practical legal solutions which take into account our clients’ commercial reality, perspective, concerns and priorities and assist them to achieve their goals and take a proactive approach in identifying both opportunities and risks.

Many of our client relationships have been honed over several decades. With long-term relationships comes unrivalled insight into our clients’ operations and industries which allows us to provide advice tailored to expectations and based on the knowledge we have acquired of their business. Our lawyers have an expertise in working closely with corporate and in-house legal groups and have developed processes and skills which add value to the service we provide.


An Expert Team

Our teams have been working together within and across departments for many years to provide a specialised, consistent and high-standard service. We have been involved in most of the pioneer transactions to have taken place in the country, encompassing ground-breaking changes in the legal landscape. We have acted in disputes which have created precedents. The Firm’s lawyers regularly participate in the preparation of legislation and regulatory frameworks, and interface with regulators, ombudsmen and supervisory authorities.


An Uncompromising Approach to Ethics

The ethical practice of law is the cornerstone of our practice. We have policies and procedures in place to ensure compliance with practice regulations and legislation governing the provision of legal services and the legal sector. Over and above this, we conform with international legal industry standards by applying uncompromising ethical and practice management principles.

Main Areas of Practice

We are leaders in the corporate, commercial and finance sectors, specialising in foreign direct investment, banking, capital markets, funds, energy, projects, privatisation and real estate transactions. We offer expert practices in employment, EU, competition & antitrust, intellectual property, data protection and privacy, public procurement and tax, and in the aviation, environment, insurance, life sciences and healthcare and telecommunications, media and technology industries. Our litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution practice is recognised for its track record in significant administrative, civil and commercial and corporate crime disputes, some of which have created precedents. We count industry frontrunners, private individuals, listed and private companies, supranational, global and national entities and corporations, and small and medium sized enterprises from all the major sectors among our clients.


Our clients trust us to passionately protect and promote their interests. Exceptional lawyers work within and across teams to offer excellent service in line with international professional and ethical standards of care.


Responsible Business Strategy

Acting with responsibility to the legal industry and the community and markets in which we are active is the cornerstone of our practice and drives all our relationships. We promote and apply the principles of non-discrimination, fairness and equal opportunities to the way we work and deliver our services, all aspects of our professional dealings and all our policies and procedures. Through our pro bono programme, we help provide access to the law and justice for those who cannot otherwise afford legal representation, support the work of non-profits and charities and participate in NGO-run research projects. We devote our resources, energy and enthusiasm to acting for non-profits and charities, on human rights cases and on social impact matters and support over 30 organisations involved in the welfare of children and vulnerable members of the community, higher and lower education, culture and the arts on an ongoing basis by way of sponsorship and donations.

International Work

We deliver an international level of service. A substantial part of the Firm’s practice concentrates on complex domestic and cross-border transactions and disputes and our work is consistently recognised by all the major international legal directories.


We have enduring relationships with leading law firms all over the world across our areas of practice and act together with many of these firms regularly in providing a seamless and integrated international service to our clients.
