International

At Papapolitis & Papapolitis we recognize that in an increasingly globalized world of cross-border transactions, foreign investment, supra-national legislation, regulations and internationally operating corporations, access to integrated and seamless cross-border advice is of vital importance. We have developed key relationships with major international law firms and continuously work on strategies to enable us to provide the highest level of international legal services to our clients. This unique outlook within the Greek market, coupled with our dedicated approach to adding value to our clients’ business objectives, allows us to deliver an international standard of legal services.

Our international strategy is led by our Managing Partner Nicholas Papapolitis, a Skadden (New York) alumnus, who has advised on some of the major transactions to take place in the Greek market in recent years, including the largest foreign direct investment in a Greek corporation since Greece entered the MoU with the Troika, as well as the largest real-estate transaction to ever take place in Greece.

In 2012, we entered into a non-exclusive Strategic Alliance with leading international law firm Reed Smith LLP, making us the first and only Greek law firm to have a formal relationship with an international law firm.

Our expertise and critical role in international transactions has been recognized by the leading legal directories.
