I am thinking of relocating to Greece (self-employed translator) in the next couple of years, and since Athens is almost certainly where we’ll start off, it’s great to get another insight into what awaits us!

Reply Link City Gent 30 July 2009 at 17:24 Good to hear that not all is doom and gloom in the legal world, and a very interesting insight into practice in a foreign country. I’m the first to admit that my knowledge of shipping law could be summed up on the back of a fag packet, but I’m intrigued as to how an English solicitor can practise in Greece when I would have thought shipping there would be covered by Greek law. And finally, are there any vacancies!

That means that the worldwide shipping community needs English shipping lawyers, and long may it last. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
