Our Firm is member of ICC Hellas, the National Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce (“ICC”).
ICC is the world business organization, devoted to promoting open international trade and investment and helping business meet the challenges and opportunities of globalization.
ICC works closely with the United Nations, the World Trade Organization and other intergovernmental forums, including the G20.
ICC’s three main activities are: rule setting, dispute resolution, and policy advocacy. Since its member companies and associations are themselves engaged in international business, ICC has unrivalled authority in making rules that govern the conduct of business across borders. Although these rules are voluntary, they are observed in countless thousands of transactions every day and have become part of the fabric of international trade. Business leaders and experts drawn from the ICC membership establish the business stance on broad issues of trade and investment policy as well as on vital technical and sectoral subjects. These include anti-corruption, banking, the digital economy, telecommunications, marketing ethics, environment and energy, competition policy and intellectual property, among others.
ICC also provides essential services, foremost among them the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the world's leading arbitral institution. Another service is the World Chambers Federation, ICC's worldwide network of chambers of commerce, fostering interaction and exchange of chamber best practice. ICC also offers specialized training and seminars and is an industry-leading publisher of practical and educational reference tools for international business, banking and arbitration.
ICC Hellas was founded in 1926. All national chambers are members of ICC Hellas together with local entities doing business mainly abroad and wishing to strengthen the presence of Greek economy in international forums as well as to participate to the global business rule making.
