CONTRACTS IN GREECE

A general principle governing the Greek law is the freedom to contract. However, such freedom is limited by the principles of good faith and the moral conventions as well as by other mandatory provisions of the law.

Several types of contracts are regulated by special laws, which in most cases derive directly from the respective EU directives.

We typically mention the following:

COMMERCIAL AGENCY AND DISTRIBUTION CONTRACTS 

They are governed by P.D. 219/1991.

The law provides for clientele indemnification in case of contract termination.

FRANCHISING AGREEMENTS

According to certain court decisions, these agreements are also governed by the law regulating commercial agency contracts.
