PARTNER WHO LED THE ADVICE

Theodore Pistiolis

We successfully defended our client against a law suit launched by a group of former technical employees working in road construction projects across Greece.Their claim, which included overtime and weekend work stretching back 20 years, were completely rejected by the courts which was obviously a crucial win for our client.

We also represented the client in more than 60standalone litigation cases brought by former employees working in construction sites in Western Greece and in the Middle East. 90% of the claims, concerning multiple complex areas of employment law such as collective labour agreements, workplace accidents, wage differences and overtime, were rejected at first instance.

This is another example of an extremely complex mandate which plays to our strengths in construction and emplyment – and in which we won notable successes for our client.
