We advise clients in all stages of contentious situations. We perform complex assessments of factual and legal aspects of disputes to help clients make adequate decisions on how to manage their contentious situations. We also help clients avoid formal proceedings by negotiating settlement arrangements.

Our dispute resolution team is involved in drafting of dispute resolution clauses in commercial agreements. We also get actively involved in the structuring of investments with the aim of choosing the most suitable jurisdiction from which it will be invested into Serbia, in light of available treaty protections.

BDK Advokati takes particular pride in its investment and commercial arbitration capability.  We have represented foreign investors in arbitration disputes with host states or other local entities arising out of BITs, privatization contracts, concessions contracts, construction contracts or other specific commercial arrangements. We also have commendable track record in commercial arbitration, including in construction disputes under FIDIC contracts.

In addition to general commercial litigation, we have experience in specific niches such as product liability litigation and insolvency clawback litigation.

We have a multidisciplinary team dealing with internal corporate investigations. The team comprises lawyers with expertise in criminal law and procedure, tax law, disputes, employment, data protection and privacy, and corporate law.

Our comparative advantage is also our expertise in criminal law and experience in representing corporate and white-collar clients in criminal proceedings.
