Our Firm

Overview

Asprogerakas–Grivas Law Firm was founded in 1958 by Prof. Constantine Asprogerakas–Grivas and has since been considered one of the most prestigious law firms in Greece. For over 60 years Asprogerakas–Grivas Law Firm has been providing firms and individuals with legal representation of the highest quality.

The firm has a history of attracting and producing some of the country's most prominent lawyers and we are proud of our long-standing tradition of professional development and community involvement. Today, the firm's ranks include a number of leaders of the Greek legal community.

A substantial portion of the firm's practice focuses on financial crime both in the public and the private sector. Representation in cases of public corruption, bribery, embezzlement, fraud, tax crime and liability of company’s officers are the main fields of practice of Asprogerakas–Grivas Law Firm for either the complainant or the defending party. The Firm's litigation group has extensive experience in trying major trials in courts across the country and has represented numerous clients before the Supreme Court, the Council of State and the Courts of Appeals. European Union law, intellectual property and human rights are also fields of law in which Asprogerakas–Grivas Law Firm is traditionally dominant.

Our lawyers and experts also provide counseling, negotiation services, representation before public authorities and the issuing of legal opinions.

The Firm is also one of the best-known European firms for representing clients before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Some of the most important rulings of these International Courts have been shaped by us.
