Partners Miloš Čurović (ODI Serbia) and Branko Ilić and associate Primož Mikolič (ODI Slovenia) responded to the invitation of Network Business Incubator Vrelec and participated in a workshop Challenges and Opportunities of Conducting Business with Serbia on 19 June 2017 in Rogaška Slatina. ODI experts lectured on legal aspects of entering and doing business in the Serbian market, including regulation of corporate status, contractual and employment relationships and tax implications of conducting business there. A lecture about commercial cooperation between Slovenia and Serbia was given by the former Slovenian Ambassador in Serbia and the Head of Sector for Bilateral Commercial Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, mag. Franc But. The interest of Slovenian companies for Serbian market is big, which is evident from 20 percent growth of trade between the countries in the last five years which now amounts to 1.25 billion. The debate between the lecturers and participants indicated that the Serbian market is relatively well regulated. However, companies should enter the market well prepared and with a good understanding of legal and regulatory environment.

CEE Legal Matters has invited law firm managing partners from across the SEE region to share their thoughts on their careers, management styles, and strategies. In the Corner Office section of their March issue they focused on mid-career changes of personal practice.

Uroš explained “My practice has, after approximately ten years, shifted from domestic dispute resolution to international cross-border transactional work”. And while he does recommend seasoned legal practitioners to make at least a small change in their career direction at some time, he urges young practitioners “to first master personal practice on one area before moving to another in order to meet professional standards.”
