Our M&A team is made up of attorneys with international expertise coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the Greek market. As a full service firm, our experience extends beyond transactional work and we also service our clients through every stage of their company's life-cycle. We advise on public and private corporate transactions within an international and local context and undertake legal structuring, due diligence, negotiation and implementation of mergers, acquisitions, demergers, restructurings, tender offers and leveraged buyouts, as well as privatizations. We navigate our clients through the ever developing legal and regulatory framework, and advise on the EU, competition and antitrust aspects of transactions.
We use our experience to cater to the distinct legal needs of differing market participants and industry sectors, as well to advise on the risk and liabilities, but also potential for return, inherent in corporate transactions and to ensure our clients achieve their corporate goals. Our familiarity with international transactions enables us to translate global structures to the local environment and local concerns to the international environment. Our overriding aim is to align our service with our client's needs.
Our experience covers industry sectors such as finance, leisure and hospitality, real estate, energy, infrastructure, gaming, food, technology and telecoms.
