Gecić Law shortlisted as one of Europe’s leading firms by The Lawyer
Last year, Geciic Law was shortlisted with only six other companies for “This year’s law firm: Eastern Europe and the Balkans” by London Lawyers, one of the leading global publishers in the legal industry. We are pleased and proud to announce that this year, we have not only been chosen again as one of only seven companies throughout Eastern Europe and the Balkans to be on the short list, but more importantly, we have also been nominated for “coveted Europeans” competition and agreement antitrust this year “.
This places Gecić’s Law as the only Balkan law firm nominated for two “European Lawyers Award 2019”, an honor which to the best of our knowledge has never been given to any other firm from the region. This recognition was given by a panel of 29 judges – leaders of the legal industry from law firms and the most famous companies in the world such as Facebook, Herbert Smith Freehills, Coca-Cola, Santander and others.
The weight of this achievement is even greater because our work in competition and antitrust is recognized as a breakthrough throughout Europe. We operate from Belgrade, the commercial center of the Western Balkans, but can serve clients from all corners of the world through our membership in the most prestigious legal networks, Terralex and TagLaw.
We are proud of our team of lawyers and their excellence. Nominated for this award is proof of the commitment we have towards our clients and the legal profession through creativity, innovation and excellence. This remarkable achievement places Geci’s Law in the best and leading law firm clubs in all of Europe.
“We have had an extraordinary and dynamic year, overcoming new legal challenges and providing sophisticated solutions for our clients. We are proud to have maintained our position as one of the leaders in the region and, after being recognized throughout Europe, I must commend our great team for all the diligent work during 2018. Congratulations to everyone again! “Said Bogdan Gecić, who is a managing partner.
Among other things in 2018, Gecić Law successfully advised the Serbian Government in the Energy Community dispute with EPS and Serbia regarding the Coal B Project, successfully representing the National Bar Association in an investigation initiated by the Serbian National Competition Authority and assisting the EPS, which is the distribution operator leading regional energy, which canceled the biggest fine in Serbian competition law.
Serving society and the rule of law, we have continued our advocacy for a significantly and evenly increasing antitrust framework, which was previously praised not only by all state industry champions, but also the Brussels competition community and the Energy Community in Vienna.
The European Lawyers’ Choice Ceremony will take place on March 19, 2019 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, bringing together more than 350 managers and senior partners from across the continent to celebrate the best law firms in the industry, important agreements and leading individuals. We take this opportunity to thank all our clients for putting their trust in us and we congratulate all other selected companies and wish them the best of luck in March.
