Karanović & Partners Wins Two Deal of the Year Awards

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Karanović & Partners has been awarded the Deal of the Year 2023 for two groundbreaking transactions. The first one is Ivicom Energy’s EUR 155 Million Financing for the Krivača Power Plant in Serbia, the first-ever project in Serbia to receive financing through a private PPA in which our client Axpo acted as an off-taker.

We are also immensely proud that Karanović & Partners in cooperation with local lawyers won the Deal of the Year award for North Macedonia for our role in Fortis Energetika’s financing for the construction of a 50 MW PV Power Plant at the location of an exhausted coal mine.

Our consistent performance in closing significant and pioneering deals in the Central and Eastern European market over several years reflects our team’s expertise and dedication.

The CEE Legal Matters Dealer’s Choice International Law Firm Summit and Deal of the Year Awards Banquet hosted some of the most distinguished legal practitioners from the leading law firms and ILFs, as well as in-house legal professionals operating in the Central and Eastern European region. It was a unique opportunity for top-tier lawyers to come together and exchange their expertise under one roof.

“We are very proud to be receiving the Deal of the Year Award and for being part of this landmark deal, which is a testament to our team’s innovative work in the renewable energy sector in Serbia.”, added Maja Jovančević Šetka and Petar Mitrović, our Partners who guided the team in Serbia.

“It brings me great joy to share that we have been recognized as a recipient of this eminent award for North Macedonia for the third consecutive year”, said our Partner Veton Qoku, who led the team in working on the transaction.

Our Managing Partner Darko Jovanović and our colleague Igor Angelovski Partner from Ketler & Partners, member of Karanovic, received the awards.
