Former London-based JMW Solicitors Real Estate Partner Petar Orlic has joined NKO Partners in Belgrade as a Partner.
In his new role, Orlic will be responsible for international business development, according to the firm.
Prior to his move, Orlic worked with JMW Solicitors between 2021 and 2022. Before that, he was a Real Estate Partner with Watson Farley & Williams, between 2019 and 2021, and a Partner with Reed Smith, between 2017 and 2019. Between 2015 and 2017, he served as the Head of London Real Estate with Faegre Baker Daniels. Earlier still, he worked with McGuireWoods, first as a Senior Counsel between 2009 and 2013 and later as a Partner between 2014 and 2015. Orlic’s experience includes working as an Associate for Paul Hastings, between 2006 and 2009, and for Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, between 2004 and 2006.
“Being a key figure at firms such as Paul Hastings, Reed Smith, and Watson Farley Williams, Petar brings a wealth of experience to the firm, especially on deals with an international flavor,” commented NKO Partners Partner Djordje Nikolic. “He will be the interface between NKO and its international clients and partners.”
“As NKO continues with its expansion drive both in terms of quality transactions and fee earners, Petar will also draw on his vast experience to help manage this process,” added NKO Partners Partner Djuro Otasevic.
