Fotini Kardiopoulis graduated with first-class honours from the University of Athens with a law degree, and holds an LLM from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has been a member of the Athens Bar since 1985 and is admitted to practise before the Supreme Court and the Council of State.

Ms Kardiopoulis has dealt with a broad range of IP matters since 1998, with an emphasis on trademarks and alternative dispute resolution. She heads the anti-counterfeiting/anti-piracy department of the firm, and has particular experience in devising and implementing anti-counterfeiting programmes, filing and administering customs actions, monitoring and enforcing IP rights online and advising on domain name disputes. She writes frequently on IP issues.

With 14 specialised IP attorneys, three of whom are European patent attorneys, Dr Helen G Papaconstantinou and Partners is one of the largest IP law firms in Greece and broadly recognised as the leading boutique in the country.

Our firm has an international reputation for high-quality expert services and sophisticated legal and business solutions in the IP field. We aptly combine our international orientation with in-depth knowledge of the Greek business and legal environment. What sets us apart is our extensive experience and expertise in the IP sector and our commitment to problem solving and achieving results.

Our firm’s history goes back to 1920, when PD Theodorides founded his law office, which was highly specialised in IP matters. Helen G Papaconstantinou joined the practice in 1965 and became a partner in 1971. In 1986 she took over the management of the office, as Dr Theodorides’s successor. In 1996, she founded the firm Dr Helen G Papaconstantinou, John V Filias and Associates, also dealing with IP-related matters. At the end of 2015 the two practices joined forces, forming our firm.

The managing partner of the new firm is Dr Papaconstantinou; the other four partners are Eva Yazitzoglou, Miranda Theodoridou, Maria Athanassiadou and Fotini Kardiopoulis.

In addition to striving for professional excellence, our lawyers and staff have a strong commitment to professional integrity and business ethics.
