Serbia remains gripped by an economic malaise with debt equivalent to 70% of GDP, in addition to which the country was hit by record floods in 2014. Although foreign investment is low and infrastructure projects have been slow to progress, the latter half of 2014 produced a modest uptick in legal instructions. There has been investment from Abu Dhabi in agriculture and commercial development, such as the €3bn Belgrade Waterfront project. New laws require the privatisation of approximately 500 state-owned companies to be completed by the end of 2015 and the need for private companies to sell assets to repay debt will provide private equity investment opportunities. Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts made its first investment in Southeastern Europe (SEE) in 2014 when it acquired cable and satellite operator SBB/Telemach from Mid Europa Partners; the bidding process and regional deal, co-ordinated from Serbia, provided work for numerous law firms. Also in the headlines is the sale of troubled Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank’s entire Balkan business.
Serbia’s small but competitive legal market is led by a handful of sophisticated, domestic firms competing for international transactions with the large CEE/SEE regional players. Among the home-grown talent, Karanovic & Nikolic has led the way in Balkan expansion and competes head-on with global firms such as CMS.
