Agisilaos Karpetas, Lieden Law describes Greece: Competition Law and the Curious Liberalisation of Professional Services.
ABSTRACT: On markets for regulated professional services, measures have sometimes been enacted, by actors and/or authorities, to limit market access and competitive behaviour. In Greece, such measures have been addressed by Law 3919/2011 which represents a potential legal breakthrough towards liberalisation of professional services. In that process, competition law provisions and considerations have been drivers alongside the principle of professional freedom. The Hellenic Competition Commission has been granted an extended and prominent role in all phases of the liberalisation process.
