“One of the leading firms on the market”, Vukmir & Associates is a trusted guide for foreign companies looking to gain a foothold in Croatia and the wider CEE. “Trademarks require constant attention and this is a process that is best managed by professionals. The team looks after their clients’ interests and needs, so that they can focus on their business and what they do best”. “They are attentive, thoughtful and proactive in their approach. They always act in the best interests of clients and provide straightforward counsel throughout”. The innovative practitioners here frequently break new ground: for example, founding partner Mladen Vukmir set up CroAI, the Croatian Artificial Intelligence Association, to bring together thought leaders in the field as Croatia begins to position itself as an AI hub. “In terms of intellectual property, Mladen is one of the frontrunners,” observes one market commentator. “He has a truly profound understanding of the law, knows everything there is to know about IP and is rightfully regarded as one of the best Croatian IP experts”. Vukmir has assembled an all-star team in Aleksandar Bijelić and Ivan Ćuk. The “proficient and reliable” Bijelić is formidable on both prosecution and enforcement briefs; while Ćuk’s experience in commercial, corporate and banking law gives him an edge when negotiating deals and settlement agreements. Previous stints at a prominent Italian firm and at the EPO make Carla Biancotti the perfect partner for foreign clients needing crucial insight on EU regulations.
