New Mandate for Legal Committee Chairmen

Legal Committee elected leadership and agreed on main topics for a two-year programme on April 18. Mihajlo Zivkovic, Corporate Collection Department Manager at Societe Generale Banka Srbija was re-elected as a Committee President and Igor Zivkovski, Partner at Živković Samardžić Law Office was re-elected as a Vice President. We therefore use this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to both Mihailo and Igor for accepting the roles of Legal Committee President and Vice President, thus committing themselves to two more years of investing significant energy and efforts to the Legal Committee work.

New Committee President Mihailo ZIvkovic is Corporate Collection Department Manager of Societe Generale Bank Serbia, which he joined in 2013. His prior experience include 4 years long engagement in Raiffeisen bank and practice as a lawyer. He holds PhD in legal sciences, and has also passed the exam for bankruptcy trustees. Mihajlo Zivkovic is LC President since 2016, and is involved in WG for several laws of great importance for FIC. As priorities for the upcoming two years, LC President cited the following: Enforcement Law and Litigation law changes; Competition Protection; and Bankruptcy Law and Company Law changes. He outlined that the principle within the Committee is not to delegate the chairmen as representatives in the WG for drafting laws, but to base decision on the expertise of the FIC representative. Such practice will continue in future, he said. Mihajlo Zivkovic also outlined that FIC is now well recognized as an organization with high expertise, and that this potential should be also used for initiating law changes of interest for business community.

Committee Vice President Igor Zivkovski is Partner at Zivkovic Samardzic Law Office. His previous experience include the position of associate at Karanović & Nikolić Law Firm in Belgrade and intern at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. He advises clients in the following areas: Corporate and M&A; Commercial; Tax; and Competition. As priorities, he outlined Company Law as it is expected that it will be adopted soon in the Parliament, and also outlined the importance of the Law on Disqualified as there are problems in its implementation in practice.

Members also agreed on the main issues to be tackled in the next two years. Committee Programme, to be yet adopted by the BoD, includes following topics: Enforcement law and Litigation law changes; Competition Protection;  Bankruptcy law and Company law changes; Forex;Law on the Central Register of Temporary Restriction of Rights; and Law on Capital Markets.
