In the recent years, Macedonia has become increasingly attractive to both Austrian and international investors. If you are also engaging in cross-border business or planning to establish or intensify existing commercial activities in the Macedonian market, the international and experienced team of lawyers of our International Desk Macedonia can provide on-site support to you in these endeavours whenever you need it.
The Desk was established as part of the CMS office in Serbia already in 2005. This was the very year in which Macedonia gained the status of a candidate country for EU membership, which set off a transformation of the country’s legal system that is bringing it closer to European Union law.
The aim was to gradually reform the social and economic systems to align them to the standards of the other European countries. For export-oriented industries, targeted legal reforms have already resulted in a substantially improved business environment. At the same time, recurring political crises keep setting the economy back in this transformation process time and again.
Rely on our help to deal with this situation characterised by legal uncertainty. The CMS team has advised national and international clients on numerous big projects over the last years. Our most important practice fields include corporate law and M&A, commercial law, banking and finance, real estate and construction, energy law, labour law, competition law, trademark law, arbitration proceedings as well as advice in the field of technology, media and telecoms.
As our client, you gain access to a vast pool of local and international expertise. This will especially benefit clients dealing with big transactions and projects that require a great deal of regional know-how.
