The Firm

Founded in 1933 by Elias Paraskevas (1912-1991), widely referred to as the “Dean of Greek lawyers”, Paraskevas consists of one of the most internationally minded Greek legal teams. Paraskevas is the only Greek law firm with a branch in London and an affiliate in Monaco. A leader in the market, the firm focuses on high quality value-adding Greek law services typified by commercial approach and integrity.

Our clients include many of the leading multinational corporations, financial institutions, governments, international organizations, large state-owned concerns, and private foundations. We have taken part in many of the most significant transactions and cases in Greece and we have served our clients in several countries in collaboration with leading international law firms. Called on for a wide spanning range of deals, from plain vanilla to the most sophisticated, the firm develops innovative legal minds that aim to add value to each client’s business.

Our team of lawyers is highly qualified. In addition to their Greek qualifications, most of our lawyers have trained abroad; many have earned law degrees and post-graduate degrees from foreign universities and have a thorough understanding of the laws and practices of countries other than Greece. Their international background enables them to structure and negotiate cross-border business transactions and to document them in a style familiar to Anglo Saxon/United States lawyers and their clients. Their familiarity with foreign languages and cultures allows us to bridge cultural gaps and make clients feel comfortable in their Greek and international ventures.

With more than twenty-five lawyers and support staff, Paraskevas provides commercial, industrial, and financial clients with comprehensive legal services of the highest standard.
