The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on Greece


29 January 2021 saw The Legal 500 partner with PPT Legal to host an online roundtable with some of the leading in-house legal thought leaders in Greece. This open panel discussion covered a number of topics related to how the Greek legal community first reacted to the Covid-19 crisis and then adapted to the new business conditions that prevail. At a time when in-house legal counsel and lawyers in general have assumed even greater importance as company safeguards, we also discussed what the role of the general counsel might look like in the near future.


  • The general legal framework regarding avoidance of, and protection from, Covid-19
  • The changing role of GCs in managing risk in a post Covid-19 world

  •  Strategies to survive and thrive during and after Covid-19.
