We’ve been assisting our clients for many years in countries across Southeast Europe including in Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey.
Our instructions have spanned a wide variety of industries such as aviation, energy, telecoms, banking and manufacturing. Mandates we have received in the region have ranged from high-profile disputes worth several millions of euros, to advising on finance facilities for oil and gas plants, to advising on repossession of aircraft actions across several countries.
We also have long-standing relationships with a number of well-established local specialist and full-service firms across the region to ensure our advice is fully compliant with local laws. This enables us to help protect the interests of our clients who are active in this key region, whether they are looking to expand their reach in the region, (particularly given its position as a gateway to the Middle East and Asia), or merely looking to protect their assets in the face of the turbulent market conditions locally.
We have recently entered into a cooperation agreement with Istanbul-based law firm BTS & Partners. The move follows significant client demand for legal services in the region, particularly in the technology and media sectors, where BTS & Partners is an acknowledged market leader. This association will allow both firms to provide comprehensive legal services for multinational corporations competing in the Turkish market and for the growing number of Turkish companies competing in global markets.
