The firm: Doklestic Repic & Gajin (DR&G) is a full-scale law firm focusing on all aspects of business law. The firm is based in Belgrade, Serbia, and also has correspondent offices in Podgorica, Montenegro (in cooperation with Danilo Radulovic Attorney at Law) and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (in cooperation with Kerim Karabdic Attorney at Law).

DR&G has been recognized on the market as a premium law firm that is distinctive in its approach to clients and their businesses. The firm’s client roster includes leading multinational and domestic corporations, as well as the most prominent international organizations, diplomatic missions, business associations, and NGOs.

Regional capabilities: While the firm has offices in Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia & Herzegovina and covers these three jurisdictions directly, aware of the increasing regional needs of its clients, DR&G has established a regional legal alliance – Lex Adria.

Lex Adria (www.lexadria.com) is an alliance of leading independent law firms from the Adriatic region, which enables DR&G, together with its Lex Adria partner law firms, to service its clients in Slovenia, Croatia, and North Macedonia.

The idea behind the network is simple yet valuable: to be able to provide a one-stop-shop for clients who need assistance in more than one country of the region. All such work is coordinated by and delivered from one center, which ensures that the client gets a uniform advice for all of the jurisdictions involved, without the need to separately engage and communicate with several firms.

Values: We are proud of five basic principles that define who we are and how we approach the job we do:

Premium legal service – We set high standards in providing legal services. Our legal service is far above the market standards.

Business-oriented approach – We do not fit into a conventional stereotype of a lawyer who would as a rule disregard financial, strategic, operational, organizational and other non-legal aspects of clients’ businesses.

Cost-effectiveness – Our business model allows us to deliver results at reasonable price. We do not overcharge for anything.

Integrity and accountability – We never compromise our integrity, and we always stay independent in our opinion.

Long-term relationships with clients – We build long-term relationships with our clients, looking at them as our long-lasting business partners.
