Pro Bono & Philanthropic Work

Apart from client related work, offering to the community has been a mainstay of our firm’s culture.

Elias Paraskevas, founder of the firm and father of our Managing Partner, Dimitris Paraskevas, was most respected for his unwavering commitment to ethics in the practice of law. He is widely commemorated in the Greek legal community for his unrivalled legal skills and his commendable devotion to pro bono work.

In keeping with the important traditions first established by Elias Paraskevas, the firm was sponsoring for many years the Fulbright Paraskevas scholarship program for graduate studies in the United States of America through the Elias Paraskevas Foundation, and in his memory. The firm has also sponsored the Charlie Perkins Scholarships, that enabled the first Australian Aboriginals or Torres Strait Islanders to study at the University of Oxford.

A landmark event was the sponsoring of a floor named after Elias Paraskevas at the new academic building of the London School of Economics. The floor was inaugurated by H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.

One of the latest highlights was supporting two fund raising concerts held at the Athens Concert Hall in memory of Elias Paraskevas towards a new wing in one of the leading hospitals in the Balkans.
