Legal Market Overview
Despite being one of Europe’s poorest countries, Kosovo’s economy continues to grow at an annual rate of over 4%. Foreign direct investment is also on an upward curve, with much of it going into agriculture, IT, infrastructure, energy and natural resources. Much of this either comes from international financial institutions or from Kosovans abroad. The economy is also heavily linked to neighbouring countries, such as Albania and those from the former Yugoslavia, especially Serbia. This is reflected by some of the leading firms in Pristina, including top Albanian firms such as KALO & ASSOCIATES and Boga & Associates. Austrian firm Wolf Theiss also has a strong Kosovo desk operating out of its Vienna and Tirana offices. Independent local firms such as Pallaska & Associates also have good reputations and regularly work with larger international firms.
