The Athens Bar Association gave the “green light” to advertising by lawyers and law firms under certain conditions, warning violators that they will be faced with disciplinary action and fines of up to 10,000 euros, it was announced on Wednesday.
The Athens Bar Association put out for public debate a draft Presidential Decree that abolishes all restrictions in connection with the advertising by self-employed professionals and, at the same time, defines the terms and preconditions for legal advertising.
After the public debate is completed the draft presidential decree will be forwarded to the ministry of justice which will have the final say.
