About the Team (content provided by Wolf Theiss)

Unprecedented growth

Our competition law practice has been growing at an unprecedented pace. Probably the best example of this is that we had a genuine business need to have more lawyers change their focus to competition law assignments. We are now being recognised not just by clients who come to us for quality independent advice, but are also regularly approached by expert publications to comment on notable competition law developments as local experts.

High-end work

There are many firms that simply do merger filings. However, clients turn to us for complex, high-end competition law matters where expertise and tailor made advice is a must.

Re-thinking our role

Not only are we known for taking on sophisticated and novel legal work, but we also perform our work in innovative ways. We endeavour to constantly think about the development of the legal services industry and always aim to offer our clients products that actually add value to their business and make the best use of available technology, in-house resources and particular circumstances of each case we handle. We understand all businesses, big and small, and try to be "value-adding lawyers" to all our clients.

Spreading the word

We constantly work on spreading the word about new competition law trends in Croatia. Be it through regular client alerts, chapters in professional publications or specialist events, the Wolf Theiss team is always first to share their insights with the local market.
