6 December 2016 – SELA, a new international alliance of leading Southeastern European law firms was formally launched in October 2016. The South East Legal Alliance was conceived and co-founded by the law firms Bojović & Partners of Serbia / Montenegro, Dimitrijević & Partners of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Žurić i Partneri of Croatia, and was joined by Apostolska & Aleksandrovski of Macedonia in the second half of November 2016. The member firms will collaborate on selected client matters to provide seamless legal support to clients, particularly when handling multi-jurisdictional transactions and cross-border work in a number of key areas including, energy and infrastructure, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, financial services, restructuring and regulatory work.
Recognised individually for their expertise and reputation in their own jurisdictions, the alliance offers clients a unified team with strong expertise in the countries of Southeast Europe and streamlined service.
Igor Aleksandrovski, Partner at Apostolska & Aleksandrovski reflected that “SELA will give our firm a sizeable new presence in the regional market and allow us to offer clients extensive international reach.”
Marija Bojović, Partner of Bojović & Partners commented: “This alliance reflects the strategic importance our firm has placed on having a breadth of reach for multi-jurisdictional work. Many of our clients are present in multiple countries in this region and a coordinated approach to client service is exactly what they are looking for.”
Stevan Dimitrijević, Partner at Dimitrijević & Partners said: SELA will bridge the regional gap while recognising the evolving needs of our client base which is increasingly operating in multiple jurisdictions in this region.”
Ratko Žurić, Senior Partner of Žurić i Partneri commented how “the focal motive for SELA’s formation was the firm’s desire to facilitate its clients with 1st tier legal service within the region, for which the firm has been recognised in Croatia consecutively for more than two decades. By forming SELA, the firm can guarantee the highest level of legal support in business ventures of its clients in all jurisdictions where SELA operates.”
