Commercial law and contract drafting in Greece

Have you found the right local partners for the distribution of your goods and services in Greece or Southeastern Europe? Or are you planning to expand existing cooperations in extended distribution networks in Greece? The new or existing contractual relationship should be legally secure for your company in Greece. Supplementary sales offers via online marketing, network marketing sales, as well as cooperation agreements with new types of sales partners, such as online marketers, influencers, youtubers or bloggers/networkers, should also be adapted, taking into account the specifics and requirements of Greek law.

As a leading Greek commercial law firm, we advise foreign companies on all aspects of Greek commercial law at our offices in Athens, Thessaloniki and Berlin. With the utmost care, we draft your contracts with commercial agents, authorized dealers or other sales and marketing partners in Greece. 

If you wish, we will accompany you during contract negotiations with local sales or cooperation partners in Athens or Thessaloniki. We protect you by providing clear rules on the choice of law and the proper drafting of license regulations, non-competition clauses or customer protection clauses. So that your local sales partner remains a sole proprietor even after termination of the contractual relationship and does not assert social security claims as your Greek employee. Or claims your customer base for his own company.
