Podgorica

Montenegro

Montenegro is one of the smallest countries in Europe, yet at the same time one of the most welcoming for entrepreneurs and a destination of choice for investors. CMS presence here stretches back to 2012 and the 2-person legal team in our Podgorica office supports locally-established companies and also international investors. If and when necessary, our team in Podgorica is supported by their 25 colleagues in the CMS Belgrade office. Our legal experts have a deep understanding of the local market, developed over many years since we first established a Montenegro desk to support our clients here.

Local knowledge, good relations with the local economic players and rapid access to the international expertise of the worldwide network of CMS law firms form the basis for the comprehensive and capable legal advice which clients prize in our Podgorica legal team.

Do you already have a presence in Montenegro or are you considering market entry and need comprehensive legal advice to do so? If so, we would be pleased to get to know you. You may get in touch with us either by telephone or by completing our contact form.

The CMS office in Podgorica can support you in all aspects of commercial law and in addition, provide full-service legal advice to answer all of the questions which may arise in the process of doing business in Montenegro.

Our particular areas of expertise are M&A, corporate law as well as general matters of commercial law. We are particularly well-known in Montenegro for our deep knowledge of banking and finance and also for financing matters across many different areas. We also focus on the fields of real estate and construction and hotels & leisure.

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.”
