Service Details

Seizure of Goods

This service is available across Greece

Who Is This Service For?

  • Companies transporting goods across Europe can find themselves in difficulties if their lorry is stopped and impounded for an alleged infraction. This can occur simply when crossing a bridge over the weight limit or some other infraction. Of course, speed is of the essence in order to get the goods back on the road and delivered as soon as possible. 
  • So, if you find yourself in a situation where your goods have been seized—be it merchandise, vehicles, or other property—under suspicion of legal infractions such as customs duty evasion or regulatory noncompliance, this service is designed for you. 
  • Clients typically face challenges such as navigating complex legal frameworks, dealing with the bureaucracy of the enforcement agencies in  Greece, and the distress of asset loss. 
  • This legal assistance aims to alleviate these problems by employing a strategic approach to recover seized goods, contesting the seizure, or mitigating associated penalties.
Who Is This Service For?


  1. The legal procedure commences with an assessment of the seizure notice to identify any procedural errors or grounds for contesting the seizure. We then file a formal objection or appeal, depending on the case specifics, within the legal time limits. 
  2. This might involve administrative appeals to the agency that enacted the seizure or legal actions before the courts. 
  3. We ensure due process is followed, representing you in negotiations or court proceedings, and if necessary, we can engage in litigation to challenge the legality of the goods' seizure. 
  4. Throughout this process, we maintain transparent communication, updating you on progress and developments.


Engaging this service leads to several benefits: 

  • the potential restoration of your goods, 
  • the possibility of a reduction in fines or penalties, and
  •  the safeguarding of your legal rights within Greece. 
  • Successfully resolving the seizure can prevent financial losses, protect your reputation, and allow you to resume business operations or personal use of the property. 
  • Moreover, professional legal support minimizes the emotional strain of facing the authorities alone and enhances the likelihood of a favourable outcome.

What Does This Service Consist Of?

The service entails a sequence of tailored actions:

  1. Detailed analysis of the seizure documentation and the legal basis for the confiscation.
  2. Preparation and submission of requisite documents to contest the seizure.
  3. Communication with the authorities in Greece to negotiate the release of goods.
  4. Legal representation in administrative or judicial proceedings.
  5. Strategy development for asset protection and seizure prevention in the future.
  6. Ongoing advice and support throughout the process until resolution.
  7. By executing these steps, we strive to secure the release of your seized goods and defend your rights diligently within the jurisdiction of Greece.
