The 2021 edition of Legal 500 EMEA guide is out, and Doklestic Repic & Gajin practices and lawyers have made great strides in the rankings.
Legal 500 ranked the firm in as many as six practice areas, in two jurisdictions – Serbia and Montenegro. Apart from these team recognitions, there were also some notable individual achievements of our lawyers.
Our law firm was ranked in the following areas in Serbia: Commercial, corporate and M&A, Competition, Dispute resolution, Employment, and Real estate and construction. This year’s highlights in this respect are our progress to Tier 2 in Competition and our entry into the rankings in Real estate and construction.
In addition, our law firm has also entered the ranking of leading firms in Montenegro, which is a feat achieved by only a handful of Serbian law firms. Apart from our senior partners Slobodan Doklestic and Marko Repic, concerning Montenegro Legal 500 also singled out Danilo Radulovic, who heads the Montenegrin correspondent office of Doklestic Repic & Gajin.
What we are particularly proud of, however, are the individual recognitions of our lawyers. To start with, our senior partners Slobodan Doklestic, Marko Repic, and Dragan Gajin are now all ranked as leading individuals in their respective fields (Commercial, corporate and M&A, Dispute resolution, and Competition).
Perhaps even more importantly, our young lawyers have broken through the ranks and achieved individual recognitions of their own. Legal 500 singled out our partner Milos Pandzic, ‘a great corporate lawyer’, as a Next generation partner in Commercial, corporate and M&A. In the same field, our managing associate Aleksandra Stojanovic, described as ‘reliable and highly professional’, was recognized as a Rising star.
Also, Legal 500 recognized our senior associate Ljubinka Pljevaljcic as a Rising star in the area of Employment, describing her as a specialist in employment and labor relations, as well as in contracts and labor disputes.
To put these individual achievements in perspective, within Commercial, corporate and M&A in Serbia, Doklestic Repic & Gajin is one of only two law firms with lawyers recognized across all three categories of individual rankings – Leading individuals, Next generation partners, and Rising stars.
We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to all law firms and lawyers recognized in the latest Legal 500 guide.
