Chrysanthi’s practice focuses on commercial and financial services litigation.
Since joining Hausfeld, Chrysa has played a pivotal role as part of the legal teams acting for claimants in a number of multi-million High Court actions, in relation to complex financial services disputes, often against the most well-known financial institutions. She also offers expertise in alternative dispute resolution such as mediations.
Prior to Hausfeld, Chrysa worked at the Legal Service of the European Commission in Brussels, where she gained substantial European litigation experience before the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. She has also worked for a Greek law firm in Athens, focusing on civil and commercial law matters.
Chrysa is a dual qualified lawyer, admitted to practice in New York (USA) and Athens (Greece). She speaks Greek, English and Italian.
Chrysa has worked on several multi-million pound commercial and financial services disputes in the High Court. She was recently involved in a high profile commercial dispute, listed as one of The Lawyer’s Top 20 cases of 2018, where it was alleged that one of the top high street banks, and one of the Big Four accounting firms, had conspired to force the administration and accelerated sale of the claimants’ business. The case settled shortly before trial, and was the first case where the issue of whether ATE insurance constitutes adequate security for costs was considered by the Court of Appeal.
Her experience includes:
- claims in connection with LIBOR-rigging
- mis-selling of interest rate hedging products
- legal actions brought against major financial institutions that had “artificially distressed” SMEs and had driven them into administration in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
