We are proud to announce that Karanović & Nikolić has once again been ranked on the Legal 500 list of leading law firms!
The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world for the past 28 years, with a comprehensive research programme revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market.
The rankings are based on a series of criteria and they are dedicated to highlighting the practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel. Some of the criteria employed include clients' prestige level, market share, historical track record on top cases, reputation for handling complex, innovative deals, perception in the market, etc. This research is based on feedback gained from 250,000 clients worldwide, on submissions from law firms, interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and an all-around team of researchers who have unrivalled experience in the legal market.
This year's edition of the Legal 500 has highlighted 5 five different practice areas within the Karanović & Nikolić office as belonging to top tier level – Banking & Finance, Commercial, Corporate, Competition, and Real Estate. In addition, Legal 500 has also remarked partners Dragan Karanović and Rastko Petaković as the leading legal individuals on the Serbian market, with special emphasis on the office's involvement in cases such as Mid-Europa's acquisition of Danube Foods Group and Sberbank's loan to Agrokor. According to the research, Karanović & Nikolić presents a coherent one-stop service, capable of providing advice for multiple jurisdictions – encompassing all ex-Yugoslav countries – in a short turnaround.
Karanović & Nikolić's inclusion on the Legal 500 list presents the latest in a long line of recognitions it has obtained from world-leading independent legal directories such as Chambers & Partners and IFLR1000. We are looking forward to ensuring further consistency for years to come by continuing to deliver the best possible service to our clients from a market-leading position.
