Tryfon Koutalidis

Founder – An inspiring visionary of the legal industry

Tryfon Koutalidis is forever remembered as the low-key, ingenious legal advisor and trusted friend of legendary political and business personalities: Onassis, Karamanlis, Lambrakis to name a few. Through his innovative thinking, he broke the mold of the Greek legal practices, introducing, some 50 years ago, the concept of the “per hour quote” and that of the “law firm”.

When considering recruitment, the process was completely deprived of nepotism or connections and was entirely dependent on skills. Never one to shy away from meticulous work, successful, yet away from the spotlight, honest and virtuous, demanding yet generous with his team of aspiring professionals, Tryfon achieved more than winning cases: he was respected by his opponents.
His captivating spirit was creatively untamed, leading him to write “The Lawyer”- a book attracting reader’s interest and recognition even outside the legal industry.
