Bojović Drašković Popović & Partners is fully committed to the principles of diversity. Diversity, equity, differentiation and uniqueness are among the goals that our law firm strives to achieve when it comes to our team and services. We firmly believe that a strong commitment to diversity enables a company to build a unique team and create a unique combination of an inclusive environment and opportunity for growth and development both individually and as a team.

Hence our belief that an inclusive and diverse workplace makes us stronger and more effective, as it provides the opportunity for an individual to achieve his or her fullest potential. Not only do we cultivate and nurture existing diversity when it comes to gender, nationality, cultural background, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation, but we also proactively implement these beliefs in our hiring process. We believe that diversity opens up the mind, broadens horizons and generally makes us all better people.

An environment that cultivates diversity awakens social responsibility, which is a duty every individual and every company has to perform to maintain the balance between the economy and the ecosystem. Bojović Drašković Popović & Partners is especially proud to be a socially responsible firm supporting several humanitarian activities and non-profit organisations and events. The sense of responsibility towards the community and the environment, both ecologically and socially, motivates us to move forward and constantly explore new ways to better care about the increasingly globalised society that we are all a part of.

We have created the “We care” platform through which we implement various support programs, both internally and externally. We created “We care” corporate chocolates in cooperation with the social enterprise “Nostalgija” that employs people excluded from the labour market and buys fruit from small household producers. This is one of the ways in which we try to help social enterprises and people with special needs, help promote handmade domestic Serbian products and care about everyone we give this chocolate to as a gift as it is a healthy choice with over 80% of fruit.

We also care about supporting culture, as we signed up as supporters of the Belgrade Dance Festival 2020, a festival that provides tremendous support to both local and international professional dancers, teachers, choreographers and representatives of all artistic fields.

We also care about supporting children with disabilities, as we made a donation for 300 children with disabilities in cooperation with UNICEF.

We care about supporting students, so we supported the International Student Week in Belgrade organized by the World Youth Wave. We have also sponsored the Belgrade Faculty of Law team for the 22nd Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court in Vienna.
