Judicial Practice in Litigation Procedure

Karanovic & Partners at the AmCham Roundtable

AmCham organized a discussion on judicial practice in litigation on 1 October in Belgrade. A series of discussions was aimed at finding applicable answers to contentious legal issues.

One of the topics was the connection of factual allegations of a lawsuit with the probative value of proposed evidence, as well as an outreach of evidence in certain procedural situations. The relationship between the merits of the claim and the amount of the claim was also considered, along with the usefulness of Intermediate Judgment and Partial Judgment in terms of cost-effectiveness of the proceedings. After the revocation of judgment on appeal, there is no legal ground for holding a new preliminary hearing in the Litigation proceedings.

The conclusions of the roundtable will be presented to the Ministry of Justice at the end of the year, aiming to improve the efficiency of the judicial system, which will undoubtedly contribute to enhancing of the business environment in Serbia.

Representatives from the Serbian Ministry of Justice, Supreme Court of Cassation, Commercial Court and others participated in the discussion, after which the audience was given an opportunity to ask the representatives questions.

Our Senior Partner Milan Lazić was a moderator during the roundtable.
