As a special recognition to the quality of our service, we are one of very few law firms (if not the only law firm) from Serbia that is often invited by our international clients to take the role of their main legal advisor in legal matters involving other European jurisdictions (e.g. Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkey, etc.), when we cooperate with local legal counsels from the respective jurisdiction to provide best possible legal protection to the interests of our clients. For example: Managing Partner Slobodan Doklestic is often engaged by Turner International, a leading US-based construction compa­ ny,to act as their regional counsel to advise them on their projects throughout Europe (e.g. Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, etc.).
