Innovation and Creativity Earn Gecić Law a Nomination for the Law Firm of the Year Award

Following a landmark year that saw Gecić Law truly challenge the role that a law firm plays in an emerging regional market through our innovative approach and high-end service, we are honored to announce that these efforts were rewarded as the Firm was shortlisted for the Lawyer European Awards 2018 in the category Law Firm of the Year: Eastern Europe and the Balkans.  Awarded by the renowned UK-based industry publisher The Lawyer, these awards recognize extraordinary representatives of the legal industry, groundbreaking deals and leading individuals through its 24 distinct categories.  The decision, made by the panel of 21 distinguished judges, rewards the casework carried out by the firm throughout the year, innovation, initiatives in diversity and employee training, and the overall impact on the legal profession in the region.

We are thrilled that our uniquely creative style and groundbreaking achievements were recognized by the nominating panel, pitting our innovative approach against the more traditional approaches of established industry leaders from across the region.  The weight of the achievement is even greater as this was the Firm’s first nomination ever, with Gecić Law being the youngest shortlisted firm in the category, in a year that saw a record number of nominations according to the organizer.

“This achievement represents a success of a great young team that managed to become a regional leader within a very short time period by doing things differently.  From the landmark achievements of the legal team in cases before the European Commission, hosting of one of the largest gatherings of legal professionals in Western Balkans, and establishment of the unique Taboroši scholarship, this honor underlines the dynamic and holistic approach of our team to innovation and change,” said Bogdan Gecić, managing partner.

The Lawyer European Awards ceremony will take place on March 15, 2018 at the Grange Tower Bridge hotel in London, bringing together 350 managing and senior partners from across the continent to celebrate industry’s best law firms, landmark deals and outstanding individuals.

We take this opportunity to congratulate Karanovic & Nikolic, Kinstellar, Maravela Asociații, Mușat & Asociații, Popovici Nițu Stoica & Asociații, Țuca Zbârcea & Asociații and Wolf Theiss for making the shortlist, and wish them the best of luck in March!
