AREAS OF PRACTICE
BUSINESS ENTITIES- ORGANIZATIONS
Law Offices “SPILIOTI, PETZETAKI & NASTOU” provide full-service legal support to businesses. Starting from the set-up of a business, we advise our clients on choice of legal entity decisions, initial capitalization and ownership structure, business buy-sell agreements, corporate governance, employee and member/shareholder issues, operational planning, also seeing to the protection of intellectual and industrial property rights, including trademarks, patents and industrial designs, as well as licenses to use and exploit. For established businesses, we provide a full range of services to meet the legal challenges of doing business locally and worldwide.
We understand that, by providing cost-effective legal services at the early stages of a business’s growth, we are fostering a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship. This ongoing commitment to our clients is at the core of our general corporate counsel services. We act as outside general counsel to a variety of entrepreneurial businesses and middle-market companies, thus replacing in-house counsel for small and midsized businesses who outsource the management of all their ongoing and urgent legal matters and seek custom-tailored service and personal attention. In this respect, we address inquiries relating to diverse business and legal matters, including business-to-business, business-to-consumer and business-to-government/regulatory transactions.
We also advise our clients from the phase of negotiations with third parties, in Greece or abroad, through the preparation and until the finalization of an agreement, particularly in the case of supplier/vendor agreements, employment agreements, distribution agreements, licensing and technology sharing agreements, service agreements, RFPs and related proposals. At our clients’ request, we also provide legal assistance during the post-transaction implementation phase of each engagement.
Another pillar of our legal practice is real estate. Up to the moment we have handled a fair number of cases mainly pertaining to:
- Commercial leases and Residential leases. Drafting of lease agreement, termination, legal pursuit of claims deriving from lease agreement, force to vacate proceedings.
- Short term leases, such as airbnb.
- Land registries and Cadaster. Legal title checks, real property possession claims. Interim measures.
- All transactions that pertain to buying property in Greece.
We derive our keen ability to design preventive legal strategies, from our broad litigation experience. In the past we have successfully handled cases of a diverse range, such as:
- Compensation claims.
- Enforcement proceedings.
- Reorganization, Insolvency and Resolution proceedings.
- Taxation, Customs and Social Security law cases before the Administrative courts.
- Labour law cases.
- Family law cases (divorce, adoption) .
- Protection of personal data.
- Criminal law proceedings.
