CMS in Serbia
CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz opened its Belgrade office as early as 2000. This decision was due to the fact that Serbia was one of the first countries in the region to introduce political and economic reforms after the end of the Yugoslav conflict and to start approximation to the EU. The privatisation of many publicly owned companies and the progressing harmonisation of Serbian with EU law have created a wide field of action for international legal experts and CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz is playing a decisive and active role in this process. These measures, together with the continuous elimination of investment barriers, have made Serbia an interesting target for investors from Austria, Germany and Russia, as well as from Anglo-American countries. As an Austrian law firm, CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz is in a particularly good position to understand Serbia’s culture and mentality. Our shared legal tradition and our common history enable us to pave the way for our clients to access this growing economy and successfully implement their projects.
