BDK Advokati is a full-service law firm with offices in Belgrade, Podgorica and Banja Luka and teams specialised in distinct practice areas and industry sectors. BDK has a high-profile transactional record in cross-border M&A, projects and finance, top expertise in complex regulatory and other advisory work, and credentials in prominent contentious work.
BDK Advokati has distinguished itself by developing a uniquely prolific and diverse data protection practice. Since 2015, the firm has provided legal advice to over 50 leading companies with presence, or anticipated presence, in the regional market. In order to be able to meet the growing clients’ demand, the firm has beefed up data protection team, which now comprises five lawyers with expertise in this rapidly developing field.
BDK Advokati has solidified the expertise by closely following legislative developments at the EU level (GDPR), the rich practice of data protection authorities in the countries such as the UK, France and Italy, opinions of the article 29 Working Party (now European Data Protection Board), and the writings of Europe’s leading data protection experts.
The focus of recent work has been on assisting clients in the efforts to bring their data processing practices in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Serbia’s new Data Protection Act (2018), which for the most part copies the GDPR provisions.
