We help international clients and Greeks living abroad take care of their legal matters and obligations in Greece.
Legal excellence: we work to exceed our clients’ expectations
We’re a truly International Law Firm in Greece – Not just another English-speaking lawyer
— Est. 2004
We represent and advise international clients when they need support in their legal issues in Greece or with Greek law.
Over the years, we have assisted Greek citizens living abroad who received an inheritance in Greece, people interested in buying property in Greece and clients who were going through an international divorce where one of the spouses involved was a Greek citizen.
In addition, we also helped companies who wanted to do business in Greece, people who wanted to invest in Greece and clients who were interested in obtaining Greek citizenship or Greek residency permit through the Golden Visa program.
When you sign a Power of Attorney, we act on your behalf in Greece, handle all interactions with local authorities and represent your interests before Greek courts without you having to be present in person: in most cases you do not have to travel to Greece unless you want to.
The law firm was founded in 2004 by attorney Eleftheria Leptokaridou, a Greek and German lawyer licensed to practice in Greece and Germany.
We are a truly international law firm. In addition to English and Greek, we assist our clients in German and Italian.
Our law firm in Greece has its offices in Thessaloniki and in Berlin.
Thanks to an extensive professional network developed over almost two decades, we operate readily throughout Greece.
To be able to follow its international clients more closely, in 2015 the law firm also opened an office in Berlin, one of Europe’s most important capitals.
Experts in international and cross-cultural consulting: we make working with local authorities and institutions in Greece look effortless
