  • Many thanks for this excellent short article. 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!

  • 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!

  • City Gent - the majority of shipping-related contracts worldwide are governed by English law and jurisdiction, regardless of the nationality of the parties, usually with an LMAA arbitration clause. That means that the worldwide shipping community needs English shipping lawyers, and long may it last.
