Former Glinska & Miskovic lawyers Ivona Andelovic, Petra Siketic, and Marko Tomic have left their former home to launch the new Andelovic, Siketic & Tomic law firm in Zagreb.
According to an AST Law Firm statement, the three lawyers "worked before in reputable full-service law firms, where we had the privilege to work as a team and got to know one another. Our earlier experience gave us the perspective of how both the legal industry and business works. We learned that the two, without justified reason, are not necessarily adequately aligned and that such approach of providing legal services is a bit outdated. Thus, when we recognized that we share the same values regarding our profession and relationship with our clients, as well as the vision of a somewhat different business philosophy and approach, a decision to start our own firm seemed to be the next logical step."
In addition, the statement claims, "besides typical legal services, each of us has developed a high level of additional skills and knowledge (including in areas of business, psychology, management, and organization), which enables us to provide legal advice by thinking outside of the (legal) box – thus, we come in very handy in negotiations, predictions of opposite parties’ moves and reactions, reaching business management decisions and keeping track of [clients'] daily business and tasks."
Ivona Andelovic began her career with three and a half years at Porobija & Porobija, leaving it in September 2016 to join Glinska & Miskovic. She specializes in Dispute Resolution, Public Procurement, and Employment Law.
Like Andelovic, Petra Siketic began her career at Porobija & Porobija, which she left after almost four years in October 2014 to join Glinska & Miskovic. She focuses primarily on Banking/Finance (with an emphasis on Project Financings and Real Estate investments).
Marko Tomic began his career with a short stint at Laktic & Partneri, then joined Glinska & Miskovic in September 2014. He specializes in Company and Commercial law, M&A, Restructuring, IT and TMT, Data Protection, and Gaming.
All three graduated from the University of Zagreb.
