Gecić Law Yet Again Nominated Among Top Firms in SEE

Gecić Law is proud to announce that it remains a force to be reckoned with as it qualified yet again for the finals of the Oscars of the European legal world, the coveted The Lawyer European Awards, for the fourth consecutive year.  As last year’s Law firm of the year: Eastern Europe and the Balkans laureate, Gecić Law is now part of the playoffs for the 2021 Law firm of the year: South Eastern Europe Award, which now covers a market of more than 150 million people.  Our firm, positioned among the crème de la crème of law firms in Europe by the leading global legal publication, was the only independent law firm from the former Yugoslavia to be selected among a truly distinguished group competing for the title.

Gecić Law is the only law firm in this part of Europe to be repeatedly recognized by The Lawyer Awards year after year for its spirit of innovation, world-class standards of service and the tremendous growth it has seen over the past years, serving a broad array of clients in crucial matters spanning diverse practice areas across the dynamic Western Balkans market and beyond. Gecić Law was shortlisted multiple times in the European competition or antitrust team of the year – Top Five category, where we competed in the revered playoffs, neck and neck with some of the best competition and antitrust teams from the whole of Europe.

Commenting on the news, Bogdan Gecić, Founding Partner at Gecić Law, said: ”We are delighted to have been shortlisted yet again by The Lawyer and recognized among the distinguished few, not only for our region but the entire South Eastern Europe.  We are happy that our work repeatedly earns recognition from this prestigious publication, which only provides additional motivation and strength for our commitment to provide outstanding service. This achievement is especially important as this time the competition was stronger, and the awards now include an ever-greater number of truly prominent law firms and leading markets.  For this and many other achievements ahead, I would like to express my gratitude to our team who continues to work hard to make these successes possible and to our clients and partners who trust us to support them in some of the most challenging aspects of their work.”

Recognized as the standard of excellence in the European legal sector, The Lawyer European Awards have been acknowledging the greatest achievements in the continent’s legal world for over a decade.  Each year The Lawyer European Awards showcase the impressive achievements of Europe’s finest within the legal industry. The Lawyer’s elite judging panel comprises top experts and business leaders coming from leading enterprises throughout Europe. The competition was particularly fierce this year, with a record-breaking number of submissions from in-house counsel and law firms making the shortlist. Furthermore, our category grew in 2021 with the addition of Turkey, a market serving 85 million people.

The awards ceremony is traditionally a gathering of the most distinguished leaders in the European legal world, and this year, due to the pandemic, the ceremony will be held virtually on Wednesday 1 December 2021 at 2pm GMT.
