The financial troubles in embattled Greece have kicked off a full blown crisis in the Eurozone, engulfing Ireland and threatening to pull Portugal and most worrying of all Spain down into the sovereign debt whirlpool. Many insolvency practitioners will also have been following the Wind Hellas case where a neat piece of forum shopping whisked this insolvency filing away from Greece and into UK jurisdiction, provoking outrage amongst certain of the Company's creditors.
All of this has heightened interest in Greece's own insolvency regime. We are delighted that our good BGN friends at the Bazinas Law Firm in Athens have provided us and their clients with a very useful side-by-side translation of the Greek Insolvency Code. You can access and download this translation from their website.
Please feel free to raise any questions you may have with George Bazinas at [email protected] or Yiannis Sakkas at [email protected] . I am also sure that you will know now who to contact if you need any assistance in Greece.
