The firm: Law firm Zaman and partners Ltd. was founded in September 2010 by Marko Zaman, who worked as an independent attorney at law and a bankruptcy administrator. The firm’s main area of practice since its formation has been restructuring and insolvency law. Due to the fact that many of the corporate entities in bankruptcy proceedings were large construction companies, construction law also became a staple of the firm’s expertise. Through hard work, diligence, knowledge and a high-level professionalism in Mr Zaman’s dealings, the firm steadily grew, acquiring new clients while still maintaining the trust of the initial clients.

With the expansion of the workload due to a steady influx of new clients, new attorneys joined the firm so as to give the clients an even more personal and comprehensive service. In six short years the firm grew from one attorney to employing four attorneys, one attorney candidate and one attorney trainee with a stable base of clients. Accordingly, with the acquisition of new experts, the firm spread its areas of service to other legal areas, while still mainly focusing on the needs of corporate entities. Currently, the firm has the ability and resources to tend to all the clients’ legal needs, ranging from founding companies to employee-employer relationships to major financial transactions. The firm does not only focus on corporate entities, it also works with several banks, which represent an important part of the firm’s business.

Areas of practice: The firm is a leading law office in the field of insolvency law in Slovenia. The firm co-operates with numerous Slovenian bankruptcy administrators in insolvency proceedings and offers the administrators complete legal support, including, inter alia, legal advice, the management of civil proceedings (representation of administrators), sale of bankruptcy estates, etc.

Banking and finance is one of the major practice areas of the firm. The firm provides the banks with complete legal support, which includes the management of the enforcement proceedings, civil litigations, insolvency proceedings and other consulting services. The office’s added value in the area of banking and finance is especially its capacity to offer complete legal services to large financial institutions who deal on a daily basis with the legal issues, ranging from civil, enforcement and insolvency proceedings to more complex financial and banking matters. The banking and finance team has expertise in all legal areas, thus being able to provide clients with the requested holistic approach to legal matters.

The firm also advises its clients in all legal areas of corporate and civil law. The firm handles corporate and civil cases for both physical persons and corporate entities, ranging from the state’s biggest construction companies to companies involved in the IT and energy sector and other sectors. In the corporate area, the firm is best known for its integrated approach to its clients, offering them advice and legal services in all parts of corporate law, ranging from M&A to corporate litigations. In the civil law area, the firm is recognised as a trusted partner especially in real estate law and civil litigation.

  • "BLACK FRIDAY" - NOW FREELY USABLE FOR PROMOTIONS IN AUSTRIA

    Black Friday is unquestionable one of the most profitable and busiest days of the year for retail, particularly online. Worldwide almost all online store do offer sales or special promotions on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Already after this practice has established online, a trademark for " BLACK FRIDAY " was registered in Germany back in 2013. In 2016 a Chinese company acquired the trademark and then filed in 2017 for its extension to Austria. Based on the registered trademark, it granted exclusive rights to an Austrian company, which licensed usage rights to various partner stores against remuneration. Further, an exclusive " Black Friday-Cooperation Program " was established. Non-partners who used the event name or trademark were prosecuted and requested to either pay a license fee or refrain from running Black Friday promotions. Some followed the request and entered into license agreements. Some, however, did challenge the validity of the trademark. Finally, respective proceedings to check the actual protection of the trademark were initiated. Austrian courts now held that the trademark " BLACK FRIDAY " is not protected in Austria .
