Legal market overview

Energy is a particularly important sector for the economy of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), with multiple ongoing projects supported by direct foreign investment to develop thermal power plants, wind farms and hydropower plants. Other particularly dynamic industry sectors are infrastructure, agriculture, food and drink, and tourism. Corporate restructuring work remains fertile ground for firms with the challenges companies have given the ongoing economic uncertainty. The market for IP work continues to develop, while transactional M&A work is currently limited, with an upturn anticipated once state elections in 2018 have taken place.

The country possesses two separate constitutional and legal entities, being the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republika Srpska, and a special autonomous district, the Brčko District. All these entities have different legal regimes, meaning that countrywide investment and construction projects frequently require complex, multijurisdictional legal advice. Some practices including Local lawyers in cooperation with Karanović & Nikolić and B&B Legal service clients from offices based in both entities, while others are based in one area but provide services throughout the country. The ranking is dominated by a mix of highly capable domestic firms including Marić & Co Law Firm, Law Office Miljković & Partners and Law firm Sajic, and international firms with a local presence including CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz D.O.O. in cooperation with local lawyers and Wolf Theiss - in cooperation with local lawyers.
