The Greek market continues to contend with the after-effects of the financial crisis and the country’s painful debt restructuring. Non-performing loans held by the banks continue to dominate much of the business agenda, hence the introduction of a new Restructuring and Insolvency section. The downturn has also exposed many corporations and private clients to allegations of fraud, which is reflected in a new White-Collar Crime section. Despite the gloom, lawyers note that there has been a gradual increase in interest from foreign investors, including both funds and corporates, attracted by low valuations, particularly in the tourism sector. Any optimism, however, is tempered by the knowledge that the market, and the country’s political outlook, can turn quickly.

In area such as corporate finance, they are also seeing increased competition from firms like Papapolitis & Papapolitis, where many of the lawyers have learnt from their training at international firms in New York and London. There are several international firms in Greece, though with the exception of Norton Rose Fulbright and Watson Farley & Williams – Greek Branch, these are largely focused on the shipping sector.
