Market Disruptor – Youngest Law Firm Continues Tier 1 Ranking


We are proud to announce that Legal 500, the prestigious UK-based guide to the world’s best law firms, has ranked Gecić Law for the second consecutive year as a Top Tier firm in Serbia in its EMEA guide for 2018.

The firm’s practice in the field of Competition Law has been ranked as Tier 1, while the Commercial, Corporate and M&A practice maintained an enviable Tier 2 amongst fierce competition of traditional market incumbents.  Furthermore, for the first time this year, our dynamic Banking & Finance practice was recognized as Tier 3.  In addition, three of our team members Bogdan Gecić, Nikola Aksić and Marija Papić were acknowledged as leaders within their specialist areas.

Taking into consideration that last year we were and continue to be the youngest law firm in Serbia to achieve a Tier 1 ranking, these rankings represent an unprecedented achievement validating our commitment to strongly rely on unrivaled expertise, creativity and innovation to provide the best possible solutions for our clients.

The rankings are determined through extensive research into the capabilities of law firms within the local jurisdiction based on the independent feedback of the firm’s clients. The results highlight the leading practice area teams who are providing top-notch, bespoke and innovative advice to clients in Serbia.


“This is a tremendous achievement for our firm to be recognized for the second year in a row, as one of the leading and most innovative competition practices in Serbia,” said Mr. Bogdan Gecić, Managing Partner of Gecić Law. “Also, I am extremely proud of my colleague Marija Papić for being recognized as the next-generation lawyer. This is a wonderful achievement for the firm and our entire team.”

According to Legal 500, our competition practice “has superb knowledge of EU laws” and has “successfully represented the government of Serbia and Zelezara Smederevo in the first-ever anti-dumping proceedings against Serbia before the European Commission”.

Additionally, the firm’s Managing Partner and practice head, Bogdan Gecić, has been noted for being “an excellent negotiator” and listed amongst leading individuals.


Once again, Legal 500 recognized the firm’s commercial, corporate and M&A practices noting that “Gecic Law finds effective solutions” and the firm “regularly handles investment projects and has a significant regulatory focus.”

Commenting on these rankings, the firm’s partner Nikola Aksić stated, “We are happy that Legal 500 continues to recognize our commitment to clients as well as our high-end and innovative services, as our signature trait.”


For the first time this year, Legal 500 also recognized the firm’s innovative Banking & Finance practice.  The report states “Gecic Law’s ‘knowledgeable’ team includes ‘excellent attorney’ Nikola Aksić, who acted for Advance Global Capital on the financing of a local factoring company.”

“We’re especially pleased that our Banking & Finance practice has been recognized this year for our expertise and top-notch service,” said Nikola Aksić, the firm’s head of Banking & Finance, “it is a welcomed boost for our team and our strong dedication to excellence.”

The Legal 500 has been assessing and analyzing the strengths of law firms across 100 jurisdictions for over 29 years. The research and rankings published by Legal 500 are based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide.
