In view of the public health emergency resulting from the spread of the Covid-19 virus epidemic and to protect the health and safety of our lawyers, our staff and our clients, following the recommendation of the appropriate Greek Αuthorities, as of the beginning of this week our law firm has put in place remote working procedures for its teams of lawyers and staff. In accordance with these procedures, our lawyers are rendering our legal services from home, normally and during all business working hours and therefore the rendering of our legal services will not be disrupted. Our lawyers are all available on their mobile phones and have full access to their emails as usual. Alternatively, in case you experience any difficulty in contacting any of our lawyers, you may call into our switchboard on +30 2103218900.

 

This policy will remain in place as long as it is recommended or mandated by the Greek Government and until the Greek health authorities declare the end of the precautionary measures adopted for the containment of the spread of the Covid-19 virus epidemic in Greece.

   

We wish to thank you for your understanding and your continuing trust and confidence in our law firm.
