Marina Athanasiou

Solicitor, Head of Residential Real Estate

I have a law degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a Master's Degree in law (LL.M) from Queen Mary University of London. I have been a member of the Athens Bar since 2006 . In February 2018 I qualified as a solicitor. 

Prior to joining Birkett Long in November 2014, I worked as a property lawyer in Greece for 5 years, before moving to the UK to work for a conveyancing firm in Cambridgeshire.

At Birkett Long I deal with all aspects of the sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold properties. 


  • Law Degree and Masters Degree in Law

I am a classically trained pianist and enjoy singing.

I like watching all sorts of movies, from Kill Bill and The Departed to Wall-E and Miss Congeniality.

My favourite band is The National. I also often listen to classical music as I find it relaxing.

My ultimate holiday destination would be a road trip along the west coast of the US.

My favourite book is The Room by Emma Donoghue.
