With over seven years of experience with CMS in Sarajevo Sanja Voloder has developed an outstanding expertise in Corporate/M&A matters which, with her specialised knowledge in Banking and Finance matters, make her an exceptional advisor on project finance transactions for large financial institutions such as the EBRD. This is also due to her extensive experience in the UK as a UK-educated lawyer, as well as her background as a lawyer and researcher for the University of Cambridge, including a mini-secondment with the firm's London office in 2014.

The above international expertise, together with an excellence in local law, allows Sanja Voloder to support large international clients seeking to invest in local businesses. Further to assisting in the usual challenges clients face when entering the BiH market, she is particularly skilled in integrating the complex corporate and banking structures with the local market, whose main actors often lack experience in this area. She thus provides excellent advice in efficiently structuring, contracting and implementing such arrangements in accordance with the local regulatory requirements and under the existing commercial conditions. Sanja Voloder understands the needs of international clients and provides practical input and ongoing client support throughout the case, support that is unprecedented in the local market.
