Home / Locations / Serbia / Belgrade



We have also had a presence in Serbia since the year 2000. Our Belgrade office is not just one of our oldest, but also one of our largest in the CEE area. Over the years, our legal team has grown to 25 solicitors, 20 of whom are members of the Serbian Bar Association. Similar to our legal teams based in other locations, what sets us apart are some key defining characteristics: with extensive international experience and thus familiarity with multiple jurisdictions, yet with local roots, our team maintains an extensive local network with excellent connections to the key local authorities and government ministries. 

As one of the leading law firms in Serbia, we can offer full-service legal advice in all areas of commercial law and, in addition, we can offer the benefits of an international network, enabling us above all to advise clients on cross-border transactions. 

No matter what specialist area or which industry you need legal advice in, we would be pleased to hear from you, you can contact us by completing our online form, or simply by calling us.

In recent years, Serbia has become an attractive destination, both for companies and for investments. In the course of this development, we have been involved in the biggest transactions and are leaders in the area of mergers and acquisitions. Moreover, our leadership role has also extended to other areas, such as energy and/or renewables, also project financing and infrastructure projects. 

Other areas of specialisation include privatisations, tax law, competition law, lifesciences and media law and furthermore we can advise and provide support in restructuring and insolvency matters.
