The Croatian market, as part of the Eastern European emerging markets, has been the focus of investors seeking opportunities that come with higher returns than those existing in the Western European markets. On the flip side, this potentially higher return can be accompanied by greater legal uncertainty, disorder in land registers, continuously changing legal frameworks, and the enforcement of security interests. For these reasons, investors, when making investment decisions, rely heavily on risk assessment provided by legal advisers.
Therefore, investors are, when making investment decisions, more cautious than ever before, and are looking for legal advisers who are equally cautious in their predictions of legal implications in relation to projects where returns are often made only after a longer period of time, accompanied by numerous complex and uncertain administrative procedures.
