During debate of a draft bill to liberalise closed professions, Deputy Finance Minister Philippos Sahinidis on Thursday agreed to changes that would prevent high-profile law firms from creating 'chain stores' by establishing branches throughout Greece, bowing to demands from MPs in all sections of Parliament.

Sahinidis said that article 6 of the draft bill will now stipulate that only members of the local bar association will be allowed to set up law firms in a given area and not members of any bar association as originally stated in the draft bill.
