At DG Law Office, our legal expertise covers several domains, with a main focus on maritime & transport, commercial and contract law. Our key mission is to safeguard and defend your rights by providing added value without excessive overheads. At all times, we keep a close eye on your business interests, taking into account the challenges that innovative companies face in today’s hectic economic environment.

They key values of DG-lawoffice:

Anticipate the future, mediate risks today, litigate with confidence tomorrow.


    Good agreements make good friends. In a globalized and complex society, sound preparation is of vital importance.

    We have drafted and negotiated a wide variety of contracts and have been offering business advice and counseling to individual and corporate clients for more than twenty-five years, including on such diverse matters as sale-, agency and distribution contracts, lease and rental contracts, intellectual property rights, employment hiring and firing, transport and insurance issues. Our individual clients are either private persons or run many different types of businesses. Our corporate clients range from start-ups to publicly traded companies.

  • Business conflicts can cause real risk to a company and force executives to spend valuable time on litigation, rather than focusing on running the business. Personal conflicts of any nature are often a source of daily worry for individual clients. Let’s be honest: litigation may be costly and time consuming as courts and tribunals often face a backlog. Therefore, we will work very closely with our clients to develop a negotiation and/or litigation strategy that puts the client’s needs first.

    As trained and experienced negotiator and mediator, we have often successfully unraveled and solved the most complex conundrums and conflicts within short term.

  • In an increasingly competitive and polarized environment, individuals and companies frequently run into difficulties with other persons or corporations, sometimes with industry juggernauts. The conflicts are not always even-handed. Large corporations can wield their power over smaller companies and individuals in abusive ways. Obtaining a positive outcome is therefore vital.

    We may be a small company, but we have been in the ring with the ‘big boys’ many times and have come out victorious. Our wide network of specialized contacts allows us to obtain extra input on certain key issues if and when needed, at the same time avoiding unnecessary overhead costs for our clients. If things come to a head, you can count on us to defend your interests in the best possible manner.



Happy Clients




Years of experience

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
