AHI Legal Counsel’s Guide on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Published in Washington Lawyer Magazine

WASHINGTON, DC The Washington Lawyer Magazine published an article authored by Nicholas G. Karambelas, Esq. who is a partner in Sfikas & Karambelas LLP and volunteer legal counsel to the American Hellenic Institute (AHI).  Entitled “A U.S. Lawyer’s Guide to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP),” the article appears in the July/August 2014 issue.  The Washington Lawyer Magazine is the official publication of the District of Columbia Bar.

The TTIP is a proposed comprehensive free trade agreement between the United States and the European Union.  Mr. Karambelas sets forth the legal framework of the proposed TTIP and the fundamental legal issues raised by the TTIP.  He notes that the final TTIP agreement will fundamentally change the ways in which the United States and the European Union conduct business.

“There are significant potential commercial and economic benefits for the United States as well as for Greece and Cyprus. Nick’s expertise is clearly evident in the article.  It will serve as an excellent legal resource for attorneys who practice in the area of international trade and commercial law,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said.  “We value Nick’s knowledge and his commitment to a viable and constructive TTIP as the negotiations progress.”
