Law firm Watson Farley & Williams (WFW) has revealed that partner Alexia Hatzimichalis has become the new head of its Athens office.

The UK-headquartered company said the leader of its assets and structured finance team in the Greek capital is taking over from George Paleokrassas, who was named as WFW's global senior partner in early December.

The law firm describes Hatzimichalis as "highly respected".
