Mario Krka has been made Senior Partner at the former Divjak Topic & Bahtijarevic law firm in Croatia, which is now operating as Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka.
According to DTB (the firm will keep its traditional acronym, despite the formal name change), "the new name and new senior partner mark a new era for the firm and reveal our desire to continue growing. From the very beginning we have strived to be a top law firm, at the forefront in both quality and excellence. It makes us proud and happy that over the past 25 years we have been recognized as such by both our clients and peers. We are honored to continue attracting talented, smart and passionate lawyers and grateful to serve loyal clients. Inspired by the trust placed in us, we are committed to remaining in the top league and dedicated to keeping our clients a priority."
Krka is the firm's Head of Competition and Antitrust and, according to the DTB website, he is the "firm's expert for all sophisticated transactions and competition matters." He joined the then-Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic in 2008, and was made Partner in 2013. He obtained his law degree from the University of Zagreb in 2004 and followed it up with 2011 MLBs from WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar, Germany and the Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany.
Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka was established in Zagreb in 1994. Krka becomes the third Senior Partner at the firm, joining Damir Topic and Emir Bahtijarevic. Founding Partner Sasa Divjak died unexpectedly last summer (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on August 26, 2020).
