The firm possesses extensive resources and know-how to cover a wide range of services and handle substantial and complex transactions; the firm’s deep and talented roster of legal professionals provides service quality and legal expertise, leveraging the interests of both domestic and international clientele, including multinational companies and companies listed on major stock exchange markets.

Drakopoulos responds efficiently to complex legal problems with flexible commercial solutions, helping clients to achieve their business objectives. The firm offers turnkey solutions to businesses from incorporation to liquidation, always keeping in mind that what clients need is not lawyers who just know the law and advise them on what they cannot do, but rather lawyers with high legal skills who understand their business vision and assist them with materializing their objectives in a secure, effective and sustainable way.

Drakopoulos is involved in all aspects of corporate life, by providing advice in the fields of Corporate, Mergers and Acquisitions, Commercial, Banking and Finance, Real Estate, EU and Competition, Public Procurement and PPPs, Industrial and Intellectual Property, Employment, Regulatory, Tax, and related Dispute Resolution, including arbitration and litigation before courts of all instances and jurisdictions, including the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.

Drakopoulos is distinguished for providing quality legal services at the highest international standards. The firm’s “One Instruction, One Invoice” approach aims at offering a uniform service, geared towards having clients with multinational presence avoid dealing with multiple interfaces, legal systems and mentalities; instead, the firm offers one single point of reference, interface and style of service for multiple jurisdictions in the entire Southeast Europe (SEE) region and beyond, anywhere in the world.

When advising domestic and international clients, Drakopoulos maintains an active, efficient and pro-business approach smoothly coordinating the procedure across multiple jurisdictions, overcoming language issues and fee arrangement complexities.
