About Us

At Stankovic & Partners (NSTLAW) we place our clients at the heart of our business. We understand that they are constantly facing new challenges, fresh opportunities and novel problems. They want advisors who can provide solutions. And that means being flexible. It may mean developing innovative legal strategies and liaising closely with the regulatory authorities to find ways forward; or putting together teams of experts to cooperate on international solutions; or it could mean acting as project managers or business advisors rather than just as lawyers. Whatever the issue, we will do whatever we can to serve our clients’ best interests.

Whether you are spearheading your firm’s entry into the Serbian market, already have well-established operations across the region, or are intending to expand your business, we can help. We hope that you will find some of the further information you need on our website. But nothing, of course, replaces the personal touch. Please don’t hesitate to contact us directly if you would like to discuss your business goals and how we can help you achieve them.
