Litigation is the heart of our practice since our establishment in 1994. Founded by former judges, the office is home to highly accomplished advocates and litigators.
Our office is frequently retained by defendants confronted with major new lawsuits or faced with judgments and requiring our appellate practice to step in. We are also engaged by individuals and companies to protect their assets against misappropriation or to recover damages. The office has experience handling large and complex cases and our goal is nothing less but to obtain the best possible result for the client.
We have represented clients before the first instance courts, before regulatory panels, administrative courts, the Higher Court, appellate courts, Supreme Court of Cassation, Constitutional Court of Serbia, European Court of Human Rights, and other tribunals. Also, we have acted before arbitral panels in Serbia and internationally, whether institutional or ad hoc. Extensive appellate experience for civil, criminal cases and human rights makes us ideally positioned to step in at any stage of a dispute.
Litigation is often the last resort for many clients. Thus we can bring other solutions as negotiation and mediation, often resolving disputes before trial. Our experienced advocates are able to advise on the optimum methods of achieving the outcome you want and making the process as short as possible. On the other hand, in the current climate, litigation can be necessary: to uphold rights, to protect breaches of basic human rights, to recover funds or compensation or to resist claims. Non-payment can turn to a commercial dispute; falling property prices to real estate disputes and internal company conflicts to shareholder litigation. In such cases we are able to draw on our specialist litigation experience to act for our clients before the relevant court.
We regularly cooperate with our international partner firms on cross-border matters and international arbitrations.
