Slovenia

Europe

Our legal team of 15 has been advising clients in Slovenia since 2008. Our client list includes Slovenian companies with international operations, international companies and multinationals from a wide range of industries. This list includes in particular industrial and manufacturing companies, the finance industry, automotive, telecommunications, tourism and chemical firms. They all share a belief in the great opportunities in this growth market and they all trust in the expert legal advice we give them. Furthermore, players in the private equity arena and international banks are also increasingly relying on our expertise.

Slovenia was the first former Yugoslavian republic to join the EU and adopt the euro as their currency. In the ensuing years, the legal system was completely remodelled and adapted to EU standards and barriers to investment were systematically removed. It came as no surprise then that Slovenia became a destination of choice for investors. We have made it our mission to help our clients with entry into the growing Slovenian market, to work together and successfully implement our projects.

CMS Ljubljana brings several things to the table to make this happen: legal advice in German, English and Slovenian according to international standards, an efficient regional network and, thanks to CMS’s worldwide presence, rapid access to expert knowledge. We provide our clients with full-service legal support in all matters of commercial law and other fields of expertise. We focus on M&A, labour and tax law, banking & financing, construction law and adversarial proceedings. Tailored solutions are increasingly in demand and we have successfully provided these in the areas of public tenders and lifesciences.

Our staff not only has roots in the local culture but they also feel at home in several jurisdictions. This all forms an excellent basis for us to leverage our regional expertise to your benefit and yet still maintain the impartiality which is essential for the successful realisation of international transactions.

Are you also looking for legal support in the Slovenian market? Get in touch with us. Contact us by email or telephone, we're looking forward to speaking to you.

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.”
