© 2019/2020 Advokatur Athanasopoulos

As a lawyer, I have knowledge of both private and public law and their points of contact.
I prefer to practice:
  • Administrative Law

  • Education Law

  • Health Law

  • Public Procurement Law

  • Trademark Law

  • Contract Law (including leasing and purchase)

  • Liability Law

Thanks to my professional background so far, I am well connected both nationally and internationally. If required, I would be delighted to use this network for you. My lean office structures help me to concentrate completely on your needs. I am pragmatic, solution-oriented and I also like to present creative approaches to you.¨

It is important for me to be able to provide you with personal and comprehensive support - we also can, as it is usual for SMEs and start-ups, jointly agree a monthly fee model or, for certain types of work, a flat-rate fee. 

As a member of the local fire brigade, I am used to stay calm in stressful situations and to use the limited but available time to analyse options and choose the best one for you.
