The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business

“How lawyers are ranked: The opinions we gather from clients – mainly from in-house lawyers but also from other purchasers of legal services – are balanced by opinions from colleagues and competitors. Together, they provide two different perspectives – an all-round view – and biased viewpoints cancel each other out.”

Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards 2004

“For several decades, Greek shipping’s financing needs were catered for almost exclusively by overseas banks, but in recent times that has changed a little as more Greek banks have entered the picture as well.

At the first Greek Shipping Awards presentation dinner in Athens Alpha Bank was unveiled as the winner of the Lloyd’s List ship finance award.

Presented by sponsor Gregory Timagenis, a prominent Piraeus maritime lawyer, the award was accepted on behalf of the bank by its executive director and general manager, Demetrios Mantzounis…….”
