Consolidation and third parties
7.1
Does the law in your jurisdiction permit consolidation of separate arbitrations into a single arbitration proceeding? Are there any conditions which apply to consolidation?
 
Greece
No specific provision allows or prohibits the tribunal from consolidating separate arbitration proceedings. Therefore, the general principles of the Greek Code of Civil Procedure apply, according to which consolidation is feasible if the disputes at stake have similar legal and factual elements, and a high correlation exists between the different claims pursued through the separately initiated arbitration proceedings.

7.2
Does the law in your jurisdiction permit the joinder of additional parties to an arbitration which has already commenced?
 
Greece
In the absence of a relevant provision under Greek law imposing such a restriction, third parties may participate in the arbitration by submitting a joinder or a third-party notice, provided that the parties to the dispute and the tribunal have expressed their consent.

7.3
Does an arbitration agreement bind assignees or other third parties?
 
Greece
The tribunal cannot assume jurisdiction over parties that are not bound by the arbitration agreement, unless they have joined the arbitration proceedings or are legally linked to the contracting parties (eg, successor or assignee).
