Working as legal advisor on various regulatory, corporate and competition law issues, also covering administrative and commercial law aspects, and focusing to a significant extent on the telecommunications and technology sectors. During the last 13 years, Dina’s professional career has spanned regulatory policy, competition and corporate/commercial law experience in, amongst others, the following roles: general counsel and head of legal and regulatory affairs in a leading alternative fixed telecoms operator and in a mobile operator in Greece; senior competition law and regulatory policy advisor in the legal department of the National Regulatory Authority (EETT); and legal consultant in regulatory, competition law and commercial law projects with Greek and international law firms and consultancies.
