The firm was founded in 1925 and is one of the oldest law firms in Athens. During almost 100 years of providing legal services, they have acquired a vast experience and expertise in handling legal issues, as well as the confidence of their Greek and international clientele.

The firm also has close links with France and is the counsel of the French Embassy in Greece; naturally, it is fully French speaking. The head of the Firm, Constantin Karagounis, is also a member of the Paris Bar, working in Paris with our friends at Lmt Avocats (16 place du Général Catroux, 75017 Paris).

Tetra Law, Brussels, Belgium

Finally, and also in June, we were pleased to admit Tetra Law from Belgium to the network.

Founded in 2012, Tetra Law has swiftly developed into an important player based on the following fundamental foundations:

Business: their clients expect legal services that bring added value to their own business. As an integrated firm, they’re the ideal choice to provide pragmatic advice from which the solutions make a direct contribution to their clients’ development.

Synergy: To achieve this goal, Tetra Law’s various firm members work in close collaboration free from any form of partitioning, which would serve no purpose. The solutions they devise are based on expertise in a number of domains, each of which supports and reinforces the others.

Passion: Tetra Law demands a high level of involvement by its members in their subject area (business law) and a will to achieve excellence in the practice of their profession, in the service of their clients.

Our contacts at Tetra Law are Jérôme Terfve and Sabrina Scarnà

Paul Jonson, current PLG President says, “I am delighted to welcome the new firms into the PLG network. Each of the new members shares the PLG commitment to providing the highest quality commercial legal advice accompanied by first class client service. The firms are dynamic, aspirational and leaders in their own fields. We are delighted to see the network continue to grow”
