Santaniello & Partners in Serbia

The most important of the six former Yugoslav Republics, Serbia is now a sovereign and independent State, member of the Council of Europe and official candidate for accession to the European Union. Left behind the dark years of ethnic conflicts, tensions and fights with its neighbors, Serbia is having an excellent period of growth and development so as to be counted among the emerging economies of the world.

New Europeanist policies, domestic stability, big spaces and the labor's cost lower than the most developed European countries have made Serbia an ideal area for massive industrial investments that determined an increase of employment and consumption (for example the Italian group Fiat has moved the production of the models Punto - Zastava 10 and 500L in Serbia).

Serbian is the official language, but Italian, German and English are quite spoken thanks to the presence of foreign companies in the Country.

The Law of Serbia is a civil law system, but still almost influenced by the Socialist experience of Yugoslavia, especially in the terminology and doctrine.

Santaniello & Partners has collaborative relationships with leading Serbian law firms, through which we are able to offer a full legal advice in commercial, civil and criminal law, as well as in arbitration proceedings which take place in Serbia or in other former Yugoslav Republics (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Montenegro).
