The firm: Doklestic Repic & Gajin (DR&G) is a full-service 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 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.

International affiliations: Doklestic Repic & Gajin is an exclusive member for Serbia of:

  • First Law International (www.first-law.com) (FLI). FLI is the Brussels-based hub of a global network of over 80+ independent, national law firms (with over 12,000 lawyers) known as FLI NET™. FLI is the headquarters to the only EU-based, Elite Global network of over 80+ independent full-service, high quality law firms with its head offices in Brussels and regional office in Houston.
  • Employment Law Alliance (ELA) – elite global network of independent law firms specializing in employment and labor law (www.ela.law). ELA is the world’s largest network of labor and employment lawyers.

Practice areas.  DR&G is a full-service commercial law firm. The firm focuses on providing high-end legal advice and representation to leading local and international clients across industry sectors.

The firm also regularly advises international investment funds active in this region (PE & VC) and has regular cooperation with international finance and investment advisory companies, as well as with leading international law firms.

Recognitions and awards: DR&G is constantly recognized as one of the leading commercial and business law firms in Serbia.
