Dentons is pleased to announce the launch of its Greek Desk operating from the Firm’s Brussels office to provide Greek, other European, US and other clients with innovative cross-border business and legal solutions on a broad range of practices including core corporate and financial regulatory legal services, expert counseling on energy, EU competition, privatization, infrastructure, debt restructuring, bank reorganization, international dispute resolution, restructuring, insolvency and bankruptcy.
The wide scale reforms and the Greek Government’s impending privatizations, set to be one of the largest undertaken in recent times, will see increased interest from international companies looking to establish a presence in Greece.
Dentons’ Greek Desk will operate as a one-stop shop for the Firm’s clients already active in the Greek market as well as those considering entering for the first time. The team has a strong network of contacts in both the Greek Government and the market including in the energy, financial institutions, government, infrastructure and PPP, private equity and real estate industries. In addition, the Desk will be uniquely positioned to assist clients active in related markets in the broader Southeastern Mediterranean region, including Cyprus.
Counsel Orestis Omran will head the Greek Desk. Orestis Omran is both Greek and US qualified, with extensive experience advising international and Greek companies on a full range of corporate and finance matters. A graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and a frequent speaker at international business and legal conferences on both EU and Greek law, Omran has successfully represented clients in international arbitrations and litigation before Greek courts and has handled Greek aspects of US and cross-border litigation, oil & gas, infrastructure and PPP projects, investment funds and insolvency matters, and he has strong contacts in the Greek Government and the wider market.
