Frequently Asked Questions

All the law related questions clients have asked us.
How much time you need to obtain an enforceable judgment in business litigation in Greece?
Under Greek Law “enforceable” is the judgment issued by a Court of Appeal. In such claims, under normal circumstances, you need 2 to 3 years in order to obtain an enforceable judgment as from the filing of a claimant’s lawsuit before a First Instance Court.
Is it usual in Greece for a lawyer to get paid on a “no-cure no-pay” basis?

Yes, indeed. In certain circumstances particularly in labor and death or injury claims there are usual agreements concluded between a claimant and his lawyer to get paid on a “no-cure no-pay” basis at a percentage of approx 15-20% of the amount actually recovered and separately agree about the relevant costs incurred.

Under which circumstances a claimant in Greece can request security measures for his claim?

Under Greek Law, a claimant (foreign or local) can apply to the relevant First Instance Court (Security Measures Section) seeking to obtain an Order freezing the assets (real estate, bank accounts or any other movable things) of his opponent. The relevant application is made “ex parte” and it is possible to obtain a Preliminary Order for freezing the above assets until the time of the main hearing of the application.  The security applications very often are filed before the relevant Courts, particularly to secure business claims and normally they are heard within 1 up to 3 months as from their filing.

Is it usual for a Greek law firm before undertaking a case to make a “conflict of interest” search?

Certainly. Under the Greek Bar Association Rules it is obligatory for a Greek lawyer or a law firm to effect such a review before undertaking a case.
