The firm

Dedicated to providing clients with sound advice that yields results.

TSIMIKALIS KALONAROU is a commercial and business law firm with a long history spanning more than a century. We advise businesses and entrepreneurs in our chosen areas of expertise, where we seek to excel and be recognized as market leaders, providing a wide range of services in both advisory and dispute resolution matters. We pride ourselves on serving as trusted advisors to our clients, forging long-term relationships and acting always with their best interests in mind. Whilst we are based in Athens, our outlook remains truly international. To our clients, we offer an in-depth knowledge of the Greek market and practical legal advice tailored to their specific needs. Professional ethics and personal integrity are the cornerstones of our values.


We strive to combine legal expertise, creative thinking and practicality with our commitment to the highest ethical standards, so that the type of service we provide is one that clients are keen to talk about and recommend. The core principles embraced by the firm’s founders remain just as relevant today, guiding our lawyers in their work and the services they offer to clients. Our approach is dictated by integrity, accountability, dedication and commitment.


Although we are locally focused, our goal is to think and serve our clients by acknowledging the fact that we operate in an increasingly international environment. Understanding what foreign clients seek from their local counsel is one of our top priorities. At the same time, we constantly monitor developments in more mature legal markets so that we can offer a seamless and comparable service in our own jurisdiction.

Our history at a glance

Athens attorney Constantinos Papapanos establishes the firm.

Platon Tavlaridis who was Mr Papapanos’ most trusted associate assumes the management of the firm.

The firm’s IP department comes into existence when the firm receives the first instructions to recover trademarks of foreign businesses that had been seized by the Greek State following the end of WW II.

Amalios Tsimikalis who had served as the legal counsel of the National Bank of Greece and as Secretary General of the Greek Ministry of Commerce joins the firm.

The firm is registered as an official Partnership at the Athens Bar association.

A great team may well be the only determining factor between success and failure.
