About the Team (content provided by Lambadarios Law Firm)

The Competition law department at LLF is best known for its handling of complex cases. As a team we have now significant expertise in cases involving the Hellenic Competition Commission. More specifically, we see as an area of growth cartel and dominance cases as these tend to be the most complicated and high profile cases which the commission has avoided prosecuting in the past. Our team at LLF combines many disciplines that work under one leader to achieve the best results for the clients. For example part of our team when we deal with a case are a litigation partner, an administrative law partner and a partner that knows the industry such as our energy team, construction team or consumer products colleagues. This gives our team a unique advantage in dealing with a case because we do not focus only on the competition law issues but also on the broader litigation issues that stem from each case. In this group we involve Prokopis Dimitriadis (Litigation and banking), George Panopoulos (Energy), Chara Daouti (TMT) and John Filiotis (Litigation). This group along with Constantinos and Lia and a group of 5 associates completes the competition law team at LLF.  

Proof of this novel approach is that the department has once again been retained by a leading Italian construction company to represent the company in the largest cartel case every brought by the HCC involving over 30 construction companies having formed a cartel for over 20 years.
