arbitrationOur firm has been widely acknowledged for its long-standing experience and in depth expertise in arbitration. The group has developed an extensive record and know-how in arbitration. We are one of a handful of law firms with expertise in this field in Greece. Our firm’s lawyers act both as counsel and as arbitrators in a wide variety of sectors and industries with particular emphasis on:

  • infrastructure and construction projects
  • insurance
  • protection of investments
  • oil & gas
  • energy
  • corporate law and post-M&A disputes
  • international sale of goods
  • agency/distribution, transfer of technology and licensing matters

From drafting contracts and designing dispute resolution mechanisms, to pre-arbitral negotiations through to the conduct of arbitral proceedings and the enforcement of arbitral awards, we offer representation, assistance and advice to our clients. Typically, clients are major corporations in Greece and abroad.

Our specialist practice group handles a vast range of international and domestic arbitration matters. The group possesses extensive experience in arbitrations held under the auspices of key arbitral institutions worldwide, including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC). The group handles arbitrations in various jurisdictions and under several governing laws (including the Greek, French, Swiss, German, English and Swedish laws). In addition, our lawyers regularly represent clients before ad hoc arbitral tribunals in different jurisdictions.

The firm has a very strong track-record in arbitration related proceedings before the Greek courts and before the foreign courts (in cooperation with international law firms). We have handled numerous annulment and enforcement proceedings as well as conservatory measures proceedings. A very recent and characteristic example is our involvement as co-counsel in annulment proceedings that led to a foreign court decision being among the five shortlisted by the Global Arbitration Review for the Most Important Published Decision award worldwide at the 2nd Annual GAR Awards (2011-2012).
