The interview with Ivana Dišović was published in Septembe 2018, by CEE Legal Matters.

“It is pretty quiet on the dispute resolution market, as hearings are not held in the summer,” says Ivana Disovic, Partner and attorney at law in cooperation with Karanovic & Nikolic. “In contrast, we see high activity in the M&A market,” she says, pointing in particular to China’s Zijin Mining becoming a strategic partner in Serbia’s RTB Bor copper complex, which Karanovic & Partners advised on.

Disovic reports that important amendments to the Serbian Company Lawentered into force on June 9, 2018, requiring that the value of shares acquired by compulsory acquisition be determined by the market. “The previous law resulted in a lot of problems, leading to disputes,” she explains, “and share owners would try to get higher prices for their shares via litigation.”
