BDK Advokati is a full-service law firm, providing legal advice of the highest quality in Montenegro. We were one of the first law firms from Serbia to extend its business to and establish a local presence in Montenegro. Our Montenegrin office is fully integrated into the specialised practice groups developed in our Belgrade headquarters, which allows it to benefit from incorporated synergy. BDK’s approach is to promote specialisation in different areas of law and knowledge of specific industry regulations while maintaining a broad view and understanding of our client’s commercial needs. Our particular strengths in Montenegro correspond with business developments in the country. We have advised on numerous privatisations and high-profile energy, real estate and leisure deals. BDK closely monitors regulatory developments across the industries both locally and internationally, in order to be able to provide clients with quick and practical advice. The partners at BDK are recognised as leading individuals in the areas of their expertise.

Our core practice areas are M&A and Corporate, Real Estate, Energy & Natural Resources, Finance (Banking, Project Finance, Capital Markets & Structured Products, Insolvency & Restructuring), Dispute Resolution, Competition, Employment, Tax, Regulatory Compliance and Intellectual Property. In addition to our energy and TMT practice groups, we have created industry niches for financial services, health & pharmaceuticals, food & agriculture and leisure.

Our Firm is recognised and recommended by the most reputable international directories in the legal profession, such as Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500 EMEA and IFLR1000.
