BDK Advokati has launched a Human Rights Protection & Litigation practice, led by Attorney-at-Law Relja Radovic.
According to BDK Advokati, “respect for human rights remains a pressing issue in the Western Balkans.” According to the firm, “new challenges our societies face, such as the increasing executive powers and the Covid-19 pandemic, keep human rights at the forefront of the public concern. The legal profession bears a special responsibility in securing the protection of the individual, fighting systemic issues and injustices, and restoring the rule of law.”
Within its Human Rights practice, the firm reported, it will work with individuals, groups, businesses, and the civil society on the protection of human rights at national and international levels, and represent parties in judicial and non-judicial processes.
"This is an important new chapter in the development of our firm," commented BDK Advokati Managing Partner Tijana Kojovic. "We are glad to be in a position to devote our legal skill, expertise, and organizational capacities to assist vulnerable clients and help improve respect for human rights in our societies. Protection of human rights is primarily the responsibility of the state but businesses have an increasing role as well. We see the new Human Rights Protection & Litigation practice as perfectly compatible with our profile of a corporate and commercial law firm.”
