Testimonials

‘When the law firm takes on a new project it appoints the right persons to it , using its wide range of experience,  in order to achieve maximum efficiency. The personal contribution of every  team member was significant but what  contributed the most was the team’s ability to combine each member’s strengths.’

‘All PotamitisVekris team members demonstrated commitment, responsibility and efficiency. They were available at all times to assist, worked overtime  to cater for delays caused by other persons involved in order to meet the deadline and they went over and above everyone’s expectations. The firm is one of the most well known in Greece as it outperforms the others.’

‘All of the firm’s members are bright, meticulous, self-motivated  with congenial personalities who have the expertise to cope with any project assigned to them.’

‘Nikolaos Kampantais was hands on at all times even when on vacation- demonstrated willingness and patience discussing any comments/disagreements that arose again and again until he could fully understand what lay beneath and propose the most suitable solution.’

Practice head(s):

Xenophon Paparrigopoulos;

Testimonials

Professional and high-quality service.’

‘Very knowledgeable and experienced but in this case in both European and local Greek law (competitive advantage). Transparency, honesty, sense of urgency. Simply put they provide an aura of integrity (in many firms that I have dealt  with, one gets the sense of determination and results oriented BUT lacking the integrity factor).  Fees are very rational and mentioned upfront.’

‘Xenophon Paparrigopoulos (partner) & Eirini Zaglanika (associate) – Not only do they have the ability to understand clearly the needs of the customer BUT provide options when applicable with the risks involved per decision (this in my opinion is a competitive advantage, as most firms read you only the law) – this partner and the associate work so well together that they provide a synergistic effect (in many firms I have seen the senior and the associate have the opposite effect: an antagonistic one).’

‘The team’s strength lies in the fact that lawyers from different fields cooperate closely between them for the benefit of the client – without the client being necessarily involved. In addition, every team member is accessible within short notice – if not immediately. This last fact gives a comparative advantage over other big firms.’

‘Friendly, willing, listening to the clients objections, analysing various scenarios without being insisting that their opinion is the only correct one. S.Potanitis, V.Stergiou, X.Paparrigopoulos & A.Papastavrou stand out in my opinion.’
