Vesna Tišler is an attorney-at-law specialising in real estate & construction and has been a member of CMS Slovenia since September 2015. She can draw on several years of experience in advising international and local companies (project developers, real estate owners and real estate managers) on real estate law matters, especially focusing on sale and purchase, lease and security agreements.

Her regular involvement in due diligence projects concerning investments in commercial property in Slovenia gives her a competitive advantage when advising on various legal questions related to the sale or purchase of real estate which may arise in the course of project development in Slovenia.

Vesna Tišler is also frequently involved in litigation as well as public procurement matters, especially with regard to the construction and infrastructure sectors.

Following first posts at EU institutions, namely at the European Commission and the European Parliament, she continued her professional development at a global law firm in Brussels.

In 2013, she returned to Slovenia to work as an associate for one of the most renowned regional law firms in Ljubljana. She was admitted to the Slovenian bar in 2017.

Slov­e­nia: Com­mer­cial Leases in the Grip of the COV­ID-19 Epi­dem­ic
Pub­lished on ceeleg­al­mat­ters.comThe COV­ID-19 epi­dem­ic and con­sequent re­strict­ive meas­ures strongly af­fected Slov­e­nia’s eco­nomy, in­clud­ing the coun­try’s rent­al mar­ket. The COV­ID-19 epi­dem­ic im­pacted all com­mer­cial leases, with tour­ism, hos­pit­al­ity, and to an ex­tent re­tail among the sec­tors suf­fer­ing most.
