Areas of practice

From its head office in Athens, Sarantitis’ corporate and commercial practice advises on the full spectrum of business law, from general corporate representation to important M&A transactions, including restructuring of distressed targets and privatisation projects in the Greek public sector or in other Balkan countries. The team specialising in stock exchange and security law has extensive experience of high-profile IPOs, as well as private equity transactions and listed companies’ compliance obligations.

In addition, the firm has, for the last 30 years, provided legal consultancy services to Greek and foreign banks and other financial institutions with respect to their financial products and other banking services. The firm’s banking practice has been advising on various aspects of banking law, including the establishment of foreign banks in Greece, their operation and expansion, takeovers/mergers, transfers of shares, and the purchase and sale of retail and commercial operations.

One of the notable strengths of Sarantitis is its highly competent and experienced competition law practice, which handles consulting work on concentrations, cartels and vertical restraints, as well as the representation of clients before the Hellenic Competition Commission and the administrative courts in respect of relevant complaints and investigations or disputes.

Further, Sarantitis is very active in commercial litigation and arbitration, handling high-profile cases, including litigation before the Greek administrative courts.

The team of lawyers specialising in IT and media law holds a leading position in providing advice on the drafting and negotiation of the full spectrum of IT and telecoms contracts, as well as advising on data protection regulatory compliance and privacy-related matters.

Moreover, Sarantitis has a well-regarded team advising leading enterprises on labour law issues, a very strong and capable real estate and construction law practice, as well as an active energy law practice, with continuous experience in renewable energy projects and regulatory compliance since the 1990s.

Sarantitis has also had a notable presence in the Greek shipping sector for over 35 years. Due to its longstanding presence and active involvement in this particular field of law, the firm is not only known as one of the oldest, but also as one of the prominent firms specialising in maritime law in the region.
