Legal Support to Greek Challenge in the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series
Kelemenis & Co. acted as legal counsel to sailing team “Greek Challenge” during the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series which took place in New Zealand during the first fortnight of February 2009. Greek Challenge, the Greek sailing team for the Louis Vuitton Series and the America’s Cup, participated in a competition of this caliber for the first time in Greek sailing history. The competition in New Zealand was an event of the America’s Cup type and the results for the Greek team were highly encouraging given its debut. Greek Challenge has set its eyes on a successful participation in the America’s Cup, the biggest event in international sailing and the oldest living institution in sports; its introduction for the first time in 1851 came 45 years before the commencement of the modern Olympics. The event attracts the very best from international sailing thanks to its long history and its long-established prestige as the most important trophy in international sailing. Kelemenis & Co. has acted as legal counsel to Greek Challenge since 2007.
