PRACTICES

We consider ourselves experts in drafting and negotiating licensing, distribution and commercial agency agreements, having concluded some of the highest value deals in the Greek market.


We act for companies in the health care sector, providing focused pharmaceutical industry advice to address a growing number of legal complexities and tougher regulation.

What we take pride in the practice of health care law, is our ability to counsel and give specific solutions in the area of regulatory compliance based on a combination of subject matter experience with considerable knowledge of the sector. We provide advice on the most important issues of the sector such as pricing, discount and rebate disputes, parallel trade, patent protection and product liability as well as, internal policies, codes of conduct and promotional practices.

With a client base made up mostly of international companies, our team has drafted and negotiated all types of agreements, such as licensing, distribution, clinical trial, R&D and manufacturing and has participated actively in all stages of mergers and acquisitions of pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies.

Finally, we provide legal support specializing in drafting and negotiating several types of standard agreements to support operations of pharmaceuticals in Europe or in Greece, through a network of seasoned industry lawyers offering support in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian.

 

Legal support relates to drafting and negotiating several types of standard agreements to support operations of pharmaceuticals in Europe or in Greece. Support may be offered in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese, Romanian and Russian language.

No major changes are made to the agreements unless the legal department of the company approves. The number of times needed to contact the company’s legal department is low due to the past experience of the law firm regarding the assigned legal work. Assistance in the development of standard templates may also provided, since there is extensive relevant experience.

We also perform contracting compiance checks for pharmaceuticals based on hand books, which contain applicable rules arising from national legislation, codes of pharmaceuticals associations and company SOPS.

Final review of negotiated substantive (distribution-licensing) agreements is offered (internal cross reference, consistency of drafting language etc).

 

We are providing a full range of data protection services, focused on optimal solutions for GDPR compliance tailored to serve the needs of each company and its industry (such as the life sciences field), keeping the “user experience” always in its implementation mindset. We are supported by a European team of professionals with extensive experience in the data privacy field both from a legal/consulting as well as an IT perspective.

Our law firm is a widely recognized expert in this field, counseling clients throughout their company life-cycle. Both partners and associates of the law firm have served as in-house counsels in the healthcare, food industry and banking sector. This enables us to create a trust-based partner-relationship with our clients, since we are able to understand and offer insight to the commercial objectives. In this regard, we are able to offer advice in all aspects of the daily operation (including corporate minutes, corporate governance compliance, stock options schemes etc). We routinely handle strong shareholding disputes, through strategic and business-oriented approach, especially in deadlock situations.

 

We possess a well-experienced litigation team, which successfully handles complex civil, and commercial law disputes. Our focus on the business needs of the client ensures proper targeting, which combines legal and commercial assessment.

On top of that, we have a long-standing experience in public law litigation (including tax cases), with a strong presence before the Supreme Administrative Court (Conseil d' Etat).

We are also specialized in local and international (mainly ICC and LCIA) arbitration proceedings. Our integrity, analytical skills and creative settlement approaches are clearly reflected in our involvement in major arbitration cases, either as arbitrators or as defendants of the litigant parties.

 

With long standing experience both in judicial and extra-judicial proceedings for commercial claims our law firm constantly and continuously achieves one of the highest percentages of success in all sectors. Our customers include telecom companies, banks, food, beverage and wood industries and distributors of commercial appliances. Knowledge of the subject matter ensures the use of all legal means, aiming at the claim. Differentiation and exploitation of all available solutions has been proven to increase the percentage of success.

 

Our Law Firm has been actively involved in the execution of large-scale real estate projects in Greece, an involvement including, among others, land acquisition, project finance, construction planning and execution, as well as, site management and site exploitation.

Real estate projects in Greece require in depth knowledge of real estate, city planning, environmental and construction legislation. Any legal issues need to be addressed at the early stages of any venture and with close and continuous cooperation with experts in the relevant sectors (tax advisors, civil engineers).

We have also served and provided solutions for individuals who wished to acquire land and/or buildings in continental Greece or the Greek islands, where specific city planning regulations exist.

 

Our law firm is a leading expert in this field, maintaining a dedicated and well-experienced tax team. Clients benefit not only from our technical expertise and in-depth knowledge of the ever changing legal framework, but also from our very good insight over the tax authorities’ way of thinking.

We fully understand that the provision of proper tax advice is a main key to success and therefore we manage to deliver comprehensive advice across the full spectrum of international and domestic tax issues (including income tax, VAT, tax withholding, stamp tax, capital concentration tax, consumption tax, import duties, third party taxes etc.).

In addition, we are very active in litigation before tax authorities and the competent administrative Courts, with an impressive track record of success.
