The representatives of Zunic Law Firm attended a seminar on a topic “The Art of Advocacy” held at the University of Belgrade, Faculty of law on 26 April 2017, organized by Serbian Arbitration Association. The main speaker at the seminar was Philip Punwar, a partner in Baker Botts law firm from Dubai. Working language of the seminar was English. Some of the topics included differences between the common law and the civil law traditions, especially weighting of the evidence. Furthermore, one of particularly interesting issues discussed at the seminar was establishing, operation and development of arbitration institutions, which we find is very important in light of the latest developments in Serbian arbitration.
In the opinion of the members of Zunic Law Firm, reaching and applying constructive solutions in practice is inextricably linked with theoretical analysis. Therefore, we had a pleasure to attend such an interactive lecture and we hope to see more similar events organized in the future.
