DLA Piper's Greece Country Group comprises of Greek qualified (and Greek speaking) lawyers who advise on transactional, institutional and regulatory matters under Greek and EU law.

Our Greece Country Group advises clients on a broad spectrum of Greek and EU law transactional and regulatory matters. We offer legal support across practice areas advising on headline transactions, financing agreements, privitisations, restructurings and large projects.

Our clients include the Greek Government, international and EU institutions, public authorities, regional and multinational corporates, strategic alliances, joint ventures, funds, credit institutions and other lenders that are core to the Greek energy, banking infrastructure, shipping and hospitality sectors.

The practice serves as a gateway in two directions: inbound and outbound – to and from Greece and Cyprus. Our experience and reputation in the market provides us with access to key local contacts, officials, stakeholders and decision-makers, ensuring that we can advise on processes unknown to new market entrants. The Group works closely with DLA Piper offices in the US, UK and Europe to ensure a one stop shop offering to our clients in complex projects; we also represent Greek companies in the EU and the US through our international network.

The Group has experience in the below areas:

  • Banking and Finance
  • Energy, Projects and Infrastructure
  • EU competition and State aid
  • EU (regulatory) law
  • Infrastructure Finance
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Privatisations
  • Public-Private Partnerships and Private Finance Initiatives

The Group's international practice focusing on Greece has been ranked by, among others, Chambers, Legal 500 and IFLR for the team's experience in corporate, finance, regulatory and competition law.
