Antonis is a Partner in the Maritime team and is the head of the Dispute Resolution team in our Athens office.
Antonis has over 26 years of experience practising as a shipping litigator, working from both London and Piraeus for another major international law firm, and gained a reputation for his broad based shipping law practice. Antonis’ clients include P&I Clubs and leading ship owners, most of which he has enjoyed an excellent relationship over the years. This has allowed him to gain an in-depth knowledge of their businesses and makes him the first port of call to advise on both complex issues and everyday matters.
Antonis has expertise in shipping and trade contractual disputes and admiralty work, representing clients before the courts, in arbitrations and mediations and in settlement negotiations. His extensive experience in dry work includes advising on MOA, sale and purchase, shipbuilding, bill of lading and charterparty disputes. Antonis is also well-known for his casualty practice and has successfully advised on numerous oil pollution and salvage incidents, cargo recovery and defence matters and collisions, and has an exceptional track record in resolving disputes arising from marine insurance claims.
