Marija Mušec advises CMS clients from predominately regulated industries for over a decade. In the late 2000s, Marija Mušec made a gradual switch from high-end transactional and developer support to more sophisticated legal advisory. This now includes advising global companies in relation to their business operations in Croatia, from their entry into the local market over to their compliant daily activities. Marija Mušec regularly advises clients from pharmaceutical, energy (both RES and conventional), and insurance and IT sectors, and heads the relevant Zagreb practices.

In addition to the above, she manages teams providing layered legal support from severely regulated areas of intellectual property rights (both contentious and non-contentious), public procurement (from high-success bidding support to reliable appeal assistance), and data protection (compliance, e-commerce, terms and conditions).

Marija Mušec is a member of the management board of the International Insurance Law Association (AIDA) – Croatian Branch.
