Commenting on the rankings Bogdan Gecić said: “I am very proud that our team and I have been recognized by the 2022 Benchmark Litigation Europe guide.   Being a part of the prestigious global group of top-tier law firms and litigation practitioners is a great honor.  This is especially heart-warming as it comes from our clients and peers, some of whom we have worked with for many years.  This speaks volumes of the trust that our clients and partners place in us, which we have earned by continuously offering creative solutions and delivering strong outcomes in the pioneering cases we have led.  For this, we are truly grateful.  I would also like to thank my team, as without their hard work and dedication none of this would be possible.”
