We advise our clients and offer comprehensive services at all stages of the transaction, which includes the preparation of an overall structure of the transaction, coordination and implementation of legal due diligence review, cooperation and advice in the negotiation and preparation of the transaction documentation. We represent our clients in related proceedings before the Slovenian Competition Protection Agency, Securities Market Agency, Bank of Slovenia, Ministry of Culture and the Insurance Supervision Agency with a view to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

We cooperate and assist our clients with preparing relevant documents for financial restructuring.

Financial markets are subject to complex regulation and strict regulatory scrutiny. Detailed knowledge of banking and financial markets regulations is imperative for providing legal support in financial and banking transactions or for obtaining permits and licenses for our clients’ business operations.

Dispute resolution

Our lawyers have longstanding experience in handling commercial and civil disputes, including most complex disputes in banking, insurance, telecommunications and construction sector.
We primarily seek to provide innovative solutions to evade any judicial, arbitral and other dispute proceedings. If an out-of-court settlement cannot be reached, we examine the legal risks, advise our clients on the most advantageous strategy and represent them in any ensuing proceedings.
