Privatisations

Given the current sovereign debt crisis and the undertakings given to its lenders in the context of the ongoing financial assistance programme, Greece has pledged to press ahead with a bold privatizations plan. An extensive list of State-owned assets are scheduled to be sold to investors through public tenders.

Our clients benefit from our experience in complex corporate transactions across a broad range of industries from the issue of the tender documents to the negotiation and implementation of transaction documents including project financing. Our lawyers have extensive and practical experience in structuring and implementing deals between investors (companies, private equity funds etc.) and the Greek State, in several occassions in cooperation with international law firms and credit institutions.

We have acted as Greek counsel to:

  • a major power transmission operator in connection with a privatisation expected to substantially reshape the local energy industry. (September 2013)
