Investments and FX transactions

Our team successfully assists our clients with any legal challenges they may face when structuring their financial investments in Serbia. We have supported clients in many successful privatizations in Serbia and have helped establish greenfield ventures, which has allowed us to gain in-depth knowledge of general financial structuring and various modes of project financing.

We are particularly proud of our experience and quality of our services to foreign investors in helping them navigate Serbia’s complex foreign exchange transactions regulations, especially as this area is yet to see full liberalization. Our wealth of experience and knowledge in this field often contribute greatly to our clients’ success in the Serbian market.
