She undertook her initial training in London at Brebner & Co and later participated in material international negotiations procedures as a counsel of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and while being a senior lawyer at Hellenic Telecommunications SA for 19 years, honed, developed and excelled her litigation skills having undertaken cases of national and international significance, mainly of commercial and business interest.

Antitrust procedures and personal data protection fall within her recent scope of practice.
