With Marija Zrno’s appointment at the beginning of the year, CMS’s Zagreb office has gained a new partner with expertise and experience in corporate, competition and data protection law. With seven years of CMS service already to her name, Marija Zrno will continue to benefit CMS with her knowledge of both national and European law, as well as her ability to advise on a broad range of issues.
“Marija Zrno is an absolute dream candidate for any law firm,” said Gregor Famira, a CMS partner in Vienna, as well as founder and director of the CMS office in Zagreb. “In both 2017 and 2018, she was listed by LEGAL 500 as one of the ‘Next Generation Lawyers’. We are therefore all the more delighted that she will be continuing her career with CMS.” Her career began in 2011 as an associate and she has been an important member of the corporate and competition team since then. As a senior associate, she played a successful role in virtually all the M&A transactions assisted by CMS. These include the OTP Bank Group’s acquisition of the fifth-largest bank in Croatia – Croatia’s largest M&A deal and merger filing in 2017. She has also contributed substantially to developing the areas of data protection law and compliance practice in general.
Expert in data protection
Over the last few years, Marija’s focus has been on developing data protection and compliance practice. She has headed data compliance projects for some of the leading retail companies in Croatia and is regularly invited to lead seminars on data protection and compliance by various trade organizations / forums.
Marija Zrno obtained her law degree at the University of Zagreb; she also studied European law at the College of Europe in Bruges.
