Gecić Law Shines Anew in The Lawyer European Awards 2023 Nominations

Gecić Law continually scales new peaks and receives recognition for its development, innovation, and legal proficiency accordingly.  For the sixth year running, we’ve been shortlisted for The Lawyer European Awards, cementing our place among Europe’s legal elite.  Impressively, this year sees us again competing with international powerhouses.  We entered the finals in three categories, the only regional law firm to achieve this feat.

Gecić Law is a double winner of the regional title, having been named Law Firm of the Year for South East Europe in 2021.  In 2020, we claimed the same honor for Eastern Europe and the Balkans.  This year, Gecić Law not only holds a nomination in its region but also competes in two other practice areas: Competition and Corporate.  Gecić Law is standing shoulder to shoulder with Europe’s best in these areas.

Continuing our History of Success at The Lawyer European Awards

We are incredibly proud that our firm is continuing its multiple streak of nominations and thrilled to rank among the top five for Europe’s best Competition or Antitrust Team.  Our peers in this category include global leaders like Latham & Watkins and Cooley.  This nomination recognizes our groundbreaking achievements in major cases.  The European Corporate Team of the Year nomination is also especially significant, as this is the second consecutive year of nominations.  Our team’s exceptional growth and work in intricate, high-profile cases spanning multiple markets stand out again.  Our standing with top firms like Skadden and Arthur Cox attests to our success.

Bogdan Gecić, our Founding Partner, remarked: “These nominations are undoubtedly a true joy for us.  Being a finalist in diverse areas by such a distinguished panel of judges surpasses our hopes.  We are tremendously excited and humbled but even more motivated and strengthened by this news.  Immense gratitude goes to our stellar team and our trusted clients and partners.”
