The Legal 500 Series: Ivana Stojanović Raišić – a Rising Star

Gecić Law is delighted to present to you a series dedicated to the individuals who are responsible for the firm’s continued successes over the years, as seen through the eyes of this year’s The Legal 500 EMEA rankings.

In this first edition, Gecić Law brings you a success story dedicated to Ivana Stojanović Raišić who was recognized by the Legal 500 as a Rising Star in our Competition Law practice.  After joining the Gecić Law team five years ago, Ivana has built a fully rounded experience in Competition Law, Banking & Finance and M&A, which she further refined by delivering strong results in her work with key clients and on crucial cases with far-reaching implications not only on their businesses but on the economies of the region as a whole.  Her continuous achievements include providing outstanding counsel to clients in terms of EU law in Serbia and the Balkans.  With her dedication, knowledge and expertise, Ivana has become a prominent individual central to Gecić Law’s competition team that is regularly ranked as Tier 1 by The Legal 500 and this year the directory has recognized Ivana’s contribution, naming her a “Rising star”.

In addition to building exceptional working relationships with clients, Ivana consistently supports her team members, acting as a true mentor and assisting them in establishing their footprint in the legal world.  Ivana is also always keen to provide advice to university students who seek practical experience that can support their growth. A recent highlight in this area came in December 2021, when Ivana had the unique opportunity to share her knowledge and practical experience in the field of competition law with students at the esteemed University of Florence  (ita. Università degli Studi di Firenze) as a guest lecturer in the International Business Law Course.

In collaboration with the Responsible Business Forum, in November 2021 Ivana held a presentation titled ‘A review of environmental regulations in the EU and Serbia’  at the CSR Forum, the organization’s key annual event.

To further develop her leadership skills, this year Ivana joined the 2022 edition of the prestigious year-long Terralex Leadership Training Program which helps top global talent in the legal profession to connect and enhance their leadership skills.

In this year’s The Legal 500 research, Ivana was commended by clients for her exceptional work ethic, responsibility in dealing with highly sensitive matters and her thorough and precise approach in counseling clients.

We look forward to many more productive years of cooperation with Ivana and achieving new milestones.
