Bogdan Gecić – Innovation is about continuous learning

We recently won the Oscars of the legal world! Gecić Law was named the top legal firm in the 150-million-strong SEE market at The Lawyer European Awards 2021, placing our firm among the crème de la crème of the European legal market. Gecić Law was the only law firm from the former Yugoslavia and the Western Balkans to be shortlisted for the award and the first firm ever to be awarded the coveted prize in the new category covering the dynamic regional market.

The news of the award going to a Belgrade-based firm sparked significant interest. Our Founding Partner Bogdan Gecić spoke with the business monthly BizLife about the award, the development of the firm and the future of the legal profession in the region.

Bogdan discussed the importance of innovation for corporate law in the region, stressing it should always be in tune with economic and technological developments. He also emphasized the importance of EU law and international trade in addressing economic and legal issues in the region.

“In the market, new ideas are the ones that create the greatest added value. Corporate law should follow business trends, which is not always the case in our industry. That is why for us innovation always comes first and provides us with a competitive advantage. We especially emphasize innovation as our field is often considered conservative and uncreative. We are focused on finding solutions, not obstacles. Innovation is about continuous learning and the discovery of new areas and services that suit the modern age. Topics that are important today did not even exist only a few years ago. Examples are sustainable development and environmental protection, but also digital assets and cryptocurrencies. In this spirit, we recently launched a new practice area ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance). Our added value is reflected in offering our clients a fresh perspective and meaningful solutions for the new challenges their businesses are facing. This is how we build trust and long-term relationships.”

Bogdan also stressed Gecić Law’s vast experience in representing clients from various industries as well as the team’s unparalleled know-how and expertise in competition, trade and EU law in the region.
