CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz has opened a new office in Skopje, giving the Vienna-based member of the international CMS network a total of ten branches.

"We have been offering legal advice in Macedonia through a Macedonian Desk in Serbia since 2005," says Peter Huber, Managing Partner at CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz. "Because demand has been growing constantly, opening an office was the next logical step."

Office head Marija Filipovska leads a team of three. According to the firm, she will be supported in the office's further growth and strategic orientation by Radivoje Petrikic, Managing Partner of CMS Belgrade. "CMS Skopje will offer legal advice focusing on corporate law and M&A, commercial law, banking and finance, real estate and construction, energy law, labour law, competition law, and arbitration proceedings, as well as advice in the field of technology, media and telecommunications."

"From our Macedonian Desk, we have already successfully assisted many international clients in entering the Macedonian market," explains Petrikic. "By establishing an office in the country, we are fulfilling our promise to provide clients with local on-site expertise and consulting services at a high international standard." 

In addition to its Vienna hub, CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz is now present in ten locations in CEE: Belgrade, Bratislava, Istanbul, Kiyv, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Sofia, and Zagreb.
