As business lawyers our expertise covers a wide spectrum of legal topics falling under corporate and commercial law. We cover the corporate lifecycle as a whole providing legal support to day-to-day operations aiming at providing a seamless service to our clients, demonstrating both integrity and efficiency.
Our services include company formation, corporate governance, M&As and company transformations and restructuring, trademarks and other distinctive features such as domains, consumer protection, commercial agreements e.g. agency, leasing, procurement etc. competition and antitrust.
Our practice reach ranges from dealing with relatively minor everyday corporate enquiries through to large, complex multinational business transactions. Subject areas that we deal with regularly include consumer law complaints through to support over ensuring competition compliance. Our experience also allows us to evaluate and to coordinate support and advice from any specialist local or international experts on specific matters.
We have extensive experience in representing clients in a broad range of commercial disputes, utilising litigation and mediation or arbitration tools and procedures, as best suits each case we are presented with. As a law firm dedicated to provide time and cost effective solutions, we are used to evaluating litigation related risks and any expenses on a case-by-case basis; and we always propose options for utilising alternative resolution methodology rather than take legal recourse, where this is applicable. Our legal strategies ensure each individual client’s objectives and interests are best served by whatever means we feel is best applied.
Having undertaken and handled numerous commercial cases both in-and-out of court for 25 years, we have attained a multi-faceted skillset which can deal with complex negotiation and litigation cases from both civil and commercial spheres. We are able to process and evaluate any potential dispute as being part of a business transaction and we always offer advice and consultation from a legal perspective at all stages of structuring business relationships and transactions of any kind.
We, therefore, also focus on creating dispute resolution clauses in contracts and commercial agreements providing viable options in the event of a dispute and also we counsel our clients towards the establishment of dispute resolution processes and programs for an efficient management of routine conflicts.
We have an extensive experience of working in this field and extensive telecoms industry knowledge gained from advising major domestic and international alternative carriers and the Greek incumbent operator (OTE S.A.) since 1998. Our team’s members have dealt ex ante sector specific compliance and competition issues during the transition period from deregulation to digital convergence; we participated in the composition and implementation of access/interconnection and broadband reference offers provided by OTE S.A. and in the attempts by MVNOs to operate in the market.
Our expertise was further developed with exposure to broadcasting, digital media and content products, transactions and agreements by legally advising one of Greece major media players, with international presence and business activity.
We consider work in the field of TMT as a material part of our practice. We value the interplay of networks and technology with almost every type of business transaction and sectors and considering our expertise, founded to our strong transactional, regulatory and litigation expertise, a considerable asset.
DATA & PRIVACY
As business lawyers we are required to understand and interpret for clients the delicate interaction between data processing and privacy compliance with corporate and labour legislation and policies together with other areas that are related to specific business sectors and procedures e.g. consumer protection, promotion and marketing, digital products etc.
We closely follow any relevant developments in this area (and there are many) and advise clients with respect to applicable privacy policies at every stage of the processing circle i.e. from data collection to data deletion or destruction, including review of policies and procedures, managing data subjects’ requests, handling of complaints and disputes, supporting investigations and potential disclosure actions etc.
