Montenegro

Europe

Whether you are a foodstuffs company, in the tourism or insurance industry, a financial services provider or a construction company - our Montenegro office advises clients from a wide range of industries. We opened our office in Podgorica in 2012 and since then have been offering our clients full-service legal advice on all issues relating to commercial law.

This comprehensive range of services is particularly necessary in such a dynamic market as Montenegro: This republic, which is situated on the south east Adriatic coast, may be one of the smallest countries in Europe, but it is also one of the most welcoming to entrepreneurs. As a candidate for EU membership, Montenegro has been predicted to experience economic growth, which has made the country all the more attractive to investors. In turn, the country’s legal system will naturally undergo reforms and in addition cross-border projects will become increasingly more relevant. This makes it essential to be able to rely on comprehensive legal advice in all entrepreneurial activities.

CMS can provide you with a competent local representation of your interests: the office is staffed by 2 seasoned lawyers with many years of international experience, who have implemented international projects and who are familiar not only with the special characteristics of the Montenegrin market but also with your needs and the requirements of your industry - since before our office opened in 2012, many clients were advised from our Montenegro desk. If and when necessary, our team in Podgorica is supported by their 25 colleagues in the CMS Belgrade office. We are also pleased to offer our support for cross-border mandates: The integration of our local experts in the international CMS work teams enables us to provide you with seamless advisory services.

If you have any questions on our activities in Montenegro or if you are already in the country and looking for legal advice from an experienced legal firm with an international perspective, kindly get in touch with us. You can reach us at any time by email or telephone.

Mar­ija Marošan, seni­or ex­pert for real es­tate and con­struc­tion, pro­moted...
The co-Head of the Real Es­tate and Con­struc­tion prac­tice at CMS Bel­grade and CMS Podgor­ica, Mar­ija Marošan, has been pro­moted to Coun­sel after more than 12 years of ad­vising in­ter­na­tion­al com­pan­ies on real es­tate and con­struc­tion law mat­ters. Mar­ija Marošan star­ted her leg­al ca­reer after ob­tain­ing her mas­ter’s de­gree in Land Man­age­ment from Kunglinga Tekniska Hög­skolan in Stock­holm, in a reput­able law of­fice in Bel­grade. Since join­ing the team of CMS in Bel­grade in 2013, she has been provid­ing leg­al sup­port to pre-em­in­ent cli­ents on some of the largest and highly com­plex and sens­it­ive real es­tate and en­ergy pro­jects both in Ser­bia and in Montenegro. Her ex­tens­ive ex­per­i­ence in­cludes ad­vising cli­ents on the prop­erty de­vel­op­ment, sales and ac­quis­i­tions, leas­ing, con­struc­tion (in­clud­ing zon­ing, per­mit­ting, FID­IC and oth­er forms of con­struc­tion con­tracts), con­ver­sion, etc.  Mar­ija also has an ex­tens­ive track re­cord with re­new­able en­ergy and in­fra­struc­ture pro­jects both in Ser­bia and in Montenegro and has ad­vised nu­mer­ous cli­ents re­gard­ing real es­tate and reg­u­lat­ory as­pects of the de­vel­op­ment, op­er­a­tion, and fin­an­cing of re­new­able en­ergy and in­fra­struc­ture fa­cil­it­ies, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency pro­jects, PPPs. Her ad­mir­able work and ded­ic­a­tion to provid­ing ex­cel­lent ser­vice to cli­ents and her out­stand­ing ex­pert­ise have led to her be­com­ing the co-Head of the Real Es­tate and Con­struc­tion prac­tice at CMS Bel­grade and a very prom­in­ent mem­ber of the En­ergy and Cli­mate Change team. She shares her ex­pert­ise and know-how and provides in­valu­able sup­port to the CMS team in North Mace­do­nia in ad­vising on com­plex mat­ters of law rel­ev­ant to vari­ous re­new­able en­ergy pro­jects. We are proud to an­nounce this new step in Mar­ija’s ca­reer and wish her con­tin­ued growth and suc­cess with­in the CMS fam­ily!
