Our clients in Bosnia and Herzegovina include multinational concerns as well as medium-sized companies from all business sectors who, like us, have recognised the potential of this fast-growing market. We have been assisting our clients with market entry into Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2007, and every year we have successfully completed many projects together - mainly in the fields of renewable energies, construction and infrastructure, but also for banks, health care institutions and life sciences companies.

Do you already have a presence in Bosnia and Herzegovina, or are you planning to launch your business here in the near future? A seasoned CMS legal team of 10 with national and international experience and an excellent local network are here to expertly guide you through the complexities of the local legal system.

While the legal system of Bosnia and Herzegovina is stable and functioning, the political reality of a country divided into two jurisdictions, each with its own constitution and a decentralised state power structure, lends an element of complexity to the overall situation. The reality is that there are few national government control mechanisms and therefore no unified legislation. This means, for example, that even in important areas such as company law, each of the two entities has its own unique system. Our legal team fully understand how to use this statutory framework to your commercial advantage.

Since Bosnia and Herzegovina is in need of foreign investment, the barriers to investment are steadily being taken down and efforts to align national laws with EU law are moving ahead. While these developments undoubtedly increase the country's ability to attract investment, unresolved issues regarding trade and company law remain.

If you too are looking to leverage your opportunities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and are in search of legal advice and support from an experienced law firm with an international perspective, kindly contact us any time online, by email or by telephone.

Grow, flow, show: CMS relies on strong values in new employer branding
Press release - 15 April 2024In the contest for top talent, CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz is wowing candidates with a new look and feel, as well as an inclusive work environment that sets future-facing industry standards for maximum flexibility, international career opportunities, and great working conditions. Its employer promise is clear: We individuals win. CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz, one of the largest and most renowned law firms in Austria and the CEE region, is positioning itself as an employer with a strong brand identity in the contest for top talent. The firm developed its future-facing employer branding collaboratively on the basis of cross-de­part­ment­al and transnational interviews and workshops. The resulting relaunch is an authentic reflection of CMS both internally and externally, giving candidates a clear idea of what CMS stands for as an employer, what makes it special, and what sets it apart from competitors.  Diversity as the basis of shared success   The new employer branding aligns with the new employer promise “We individuals win” (#windividuals) and the employer values “grow, flow, show”, chosen to underline the sustainable values that form the foundation of CMS. These in­clude: Cre­at­ing an optimal environment for innovation and plenty of space for personal development (grow) Fos­ter­ing an open firm culture, an inclusive work environment, and appreciative interactions (flow) Show­cas­ing the cutting-edge expertise of its people (show) As Esther Brand­ner-Richter, Head of Human Resources at CMS in Vienna, explains, “The unique team behind our success unites diverse individuals with distinctive development trajectories – but always directed towards a common goal. That is the path we want to continue to pursue and to also make visible in our new employer branding. Our firm’s culture is the core of our employer brand. Going forward, we want to do even more to specifically foster our people’s individual talents. Because even in a traditional law firm environment, work should be fulfilling, fun, and offer enough flexibility for every­one.” Gün­ther Hanslik, Managing Partner at CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz, adds, “Our firm takes its social responsibility very seriously, building a sustainable culture through targeted initiatives that encompass all aspects of our work. It is a culture that allows everyone to fulfil their potential and grow, no matter what their background is – we champion diversity, solidarity, and in­clus­iv­ity.” Flex­ib­il­ity and space to adapt With its new employer branding, CMS also reinforces its image as a modern employer that practises New Work, and as a law firm that masters the challenges of today’s dynamic world of work. “In an age where the way we work is constantly changing, we recognise the importance of structuring your work individually,” says Esther Brand­ner-Richter. “Our people can set their working hours flexibly and benefit from a modern work environment that encourages creativity and cooperation. We embrace the concept of New Work. We value results, not working around the clock.”
