Bank­ing & Fin­ance ex­pert Sanja Voloder, at­tor­ney in co­oper­a­tion with CMS,...
The ex­per­i­enced law­yer was pre­vi­ously a seni­or as­so­ci­ate (at­tor­ney in co­oper­a­tion with CMS) in the Bank­ing, Fin­ance, Cor­por­ate and M&A de­part­ment and re­cently also qual­i­fied as a so­li­cit­or in Eng­land and Wales.Sanja Voloder began her leg­al ca­reer as an as­so­ci­ate at CMS and now has more than ten years of ex­per­i­ence in gen­er­al busi­ness, bank­ing, fin­ance, cor­por­ate and M&A. Dur­ing this time, she has ad­vised in­ter­na­tion­al cli­ents on leg­al is­sues re­lated to in­vest­ments and fin­an­cing in Bos­nia and Herzegov­ina. Her close work­ing re­la­tion­ship with in­flu­en­tial stake­hold­ers in the in­vest­ment in­dustry, as well as with cli­ents and key busi­ness or­gan­isa­tions and ad­vocacy groups, makes her an ex­cel­lent match for CMS’s di­verse leg­al ser­vices and ex­tens­ive pro­fes­sion­al ex­pert­ise.Voloder com­pleted her leg­al edu­ca­tion in the UK, which in­volved a mas­ters from the renowned Uni­versity of Cam­bridge, where she also un­der­took re­search activ­it­ies. She qual­i­fied as an in­de­pend­ent at­tor­ney in Bos­nia and Herzegov­ina in 2017 and in 2021 be­came dual-qual­i­fied by ad­di­tion­ally ob­tain­ing a li­cense to prac­tice as a so­li­cit­or in Eng­land and Wales as well.Man­aging Part­ner at CMS Reich-Rohr­wig Hainz Gün­ther Hans­lik com­ments: “We are very pleased to have such a ded­ic­ated and in­ter­na­tion­ally ex­per­i­enced Bank­ing & Fin­ance spe­cial­ist as Sanja Voloder in our ranks. She has made a name for her­self not only through her pro­fes­sion­al ex­pert­ise but also her en­tre­pren­eur­i­al skills. In her new po­s­i­tion as Coun­sel and an at­tor­ney at law in co­oper­a­tion with CMS, she will make a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the suc­cess­ful fu­ture of CMS in Bos­nia and Herzegov­ina.”Sanja Voloder: “I’m thrilled about fa­cing this new chal­lenge and see it as re­cog­ni­tion of my many years of co­oper­a­tion with CMS as a com­pany, its growth over the years, and es­pe­cially the com­mit­ment to our cli­ents. It also shows that CMS highly val­ues my ex­pert­ise and en­tre­pren­eur­i­al skills. As an am­bi­tious pro­fes­sion­al, I am en­thu­si­ast­ic about and am already eagerly an­ti­cip­at­ing the next stages in my ca­reer, in­clud­ing the part­ner­ship with CMS.”
