Our Job is to add value to clients businesses.
Doklestic & Partners is a full-scale law firm focusing on all aspects of business law based in Belgrade, Serbia. We have been recognized on the market as a premium law firm that is distinctive in its approach to clients and their businesses. Our clients include leading multinational and domestic corporations, as well as most prominent international organizations, business associations, domestic NGOs, etc. Likewise, we often advise and represent individuals who need protection of their legal rights and interests.
While our law firm is headquarted in Belgrade, Serbia, we are aware of increasing regional needs of our clients. For that reason, we have established strong relationships with leading independent law firms in neighboring jurisdictions of Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Macedonia, which enables us to service our clients also in those jurisdictions through our dedicated regional desks specialized for those jurisdictions.
We are proud of five basic principles that define who we are and how we approach the job we do:
Premium legal service
We set high standards in providing legal services. Our legal service is far above the market standards.
We do not fit into a conventional stereotype of a lawyer who would as a rule disregard financial, strategic, operational, organizational and other non-legal aspects of clients’ businesses. Many of our lawyers are dually educated holding degrees from both law schools and business schools.
Our business model allows us to deliver results at reasonable price. We do not overcharge for anything.
Integrity and Accountability
We never compromise our integrity, and we always stay independent in our opinion.
Long-term Relationships with Clients
We build long-term relationships with our clients, looking at them as our long lasting business partners.
