In 1988 I settled in Cologne, Germany providing legal advice and representation services to German and other foreign companies for their operations in Greece.
In 1990 I founded the European Economic Interest Group CHALDOUPIS & PARTNER EWIV for the purpose of promoting and coordinating services in the field of German, Greek and European law. Through this scheme, for more than fifteen years I have been performing legal support mainly to Greek export businesses in Germany.
In 1994 I moved the center of my operations back to Athens. In 1997 I expanded my activities to Cyprus and Serbia.
My practice has long been focused on corporate services, commercial contracts, business litigation, and real estate transactions. Over the time, I developed a particular expertise in the area of food law by acting as legal advisor to domestic and foreign companies in the food production and distribution sector.
I am (co)author of numerous publications especially in regard to commercial contract and food law, the correspondent of European Food and Feed Law Revue (EFFL) in Greece, as well as a founding member of Food Lawyers Network Worldwide (FLN).
