Kriton Metaxopoulos stated: “As Managing Partner of A & K Metaxopoulos and Partners Law Firm, I wish success to all above candidatures. This is in particular a special recognition for the female lawyers of our firm, who constitute about 70% of our people. Regardless of the final result, the fact that three of our attorneys are shortlisted as leading experts throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa in their respective fields of expertise, and our firm as one of the leading law firms in South-East Europe speaks for itself but also rewards our collective effort to meet the highest standards of service, confirming that our niche practice enjoys international appraise for the quality of services offered to our clients.”

Women in Business Law Awards has also recognised our law firm in the past, with a highlight in 2019 when we proudly received the Award for Best Firm in Greece.
