“The work ethos of PotamitisVekris, its top quality of legal services and reputation urged me to join the Corporate and M&A team, and decisively contribute to its continuous success. What is intriguing and challenging while working at PotamitisVekris is dealing with a rich platform of domestic and international clients and contributing to the fulfillment of corporate transactions of critical importance for Greece’s investment profile”
