The Greek legal order of domestic origin reserves a friendly treatment to choice of court agreements, without prejudice to concerns of protection for presumptively weaker parties. The Brussels I Convention and Regulations have come to perfect this protection, leading to asymmetrical optional choice of court agreements, in favor of such parties, without impairing the validity of agreements in the presence of parties of presumptively equivalent negotiation force.
