Representatives from Costa Rican and Austrian Member Firms Get Together in Macedonia


On 11 June 2018, a representative of the law firm Arias (WLG member firm from Costa Rica), Ms. Melania Dittel, met the Macedonian team of CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz in their office in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. The Austrian law firm CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz opened its Macedonian office in December 2017, in order to fully provide its services to the Macedonian market. The representatives of the two law firms discussed the differences in legislation in both countries and shared their experience in law issues of interest to both legal markets. Specifically, the lawyers shared their knowledge in the field of corporate and commercial law, the labour and tax systems of both countries, as well as their experience in civil and administrative proceedings.

In addition to this, a discussion took place on the differences in the market behavior by all participants (major market players, small companies, public institutions, etc.) and the investment possibilities in both countries. Both Ms. Dittel and the members of CMS Macedonia expressed their strong interest in further cooperation between Arias and CMS on the Costa Rican and Macedonian market.
