Welcome to Petošević Careers!
Why Work With Us?
Over the last three decades we created many jobs across Eastern Europe and the former USSR and helped young people develop their careers in IP. We are always on the lookout for aspiring attorneys, IP professionals, paralegals and administrative staff.
Being an international or multicultural organization, we offer a dynamic and diverse working environment which brings in different talents together, all of them working towards common goals using various skills and experience. We encourage teamwork and knowledge sharing because this gives the best results and ensures uniform quality of services. We like to think of us as one team of people covering 30+ jurisdictions, rather than 16 separate offices linked together.
We also offer flexible work arrangements including flexible hours and remote work, if mutually beneficial.

Ever since I started, my career at PETOŠEVIĆ has been like a legal adrenaline park. Not many places in Bosnia, or any other neighboring country, offer a possibility to work with some of the biggest and most prestigious law firms and corporations globally. Having to quickly switch from one cultural environment to another and from one industry to another may seem hectic, but I surely would not have it any other way! Tarik Prolaz - Head of Office - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Trademark and Patent Attorney, Attorney at Law, PETOŠEVIĆ Bosnia and Herzegovina
PETOŠEVIĆ gave me a chance to grow from a young law graduate into an IP professional. Many highly qualified lawyers generously share their experience and expertise, while our clients challenge me every day with complex and interesting cases. These are the perfect ingredients for progress.George Irimescu - Associate, Trademark and Design Attorney, European Trademark and Design Attorney, PETOŠEVIĆ Romania
If you need any help, you can always contact a person from any office and you will get appropriate support. This cooperation helps us provide the clients with quality advice within a short time. Desire to learn and develop professionally is highly valued here, too. We have access to a lot of educational materials and people constantly go to conferences and roundtables to keep current with the latest developments. Maya Smirnova - Senior Paralegal, PETOŠEVIĆ Ukraine
Our offices and people may be scattered around Europe and Asia but it is the knowledge that is passed on and shared that unites us and I believe it to be our greatest strength. After all, it is the list of our clients and the way we do our work that speaks for itself.Jelena Radević - Senior Trademark and Patent Paralegal, PETOŠEVIĆ Montenegro
I joined the friendly and culturally diverse environment of PETOŠEVIĆ Group 13 years ago, and it has been an enriching experience. The company encourages relentless perfection and employee involvement, and through the years, I have grown professionally and was given the opportunity to work with great international clients. Melina Nika - Trademark, Patent and Design Attorney, European Patent Attorney, PETOŠEVIĆ Albania
From my first day I was impressed with the positive way of thinking and the pleasant atmosphere. There is open communication at all levels of the organization and people here are happy to share their knowledge and experience. With such colleagues, it is easy to do the work timely, accurately and in the best interest of our clients.Ana Radoman - Associate, PETOŠEVIĆ Serbia
Working in this company for the past 15 years has taught me things I never dreamed of as part of a job I truly enjoy and love. I have learned how to transform mistakes into skills, develop new skills, and gain knowledge and experience that I believe has shaped me into a valuable member of this team. I will continue to work hard and look forward to another 15 years of taking on new challenges.Julijana Naskova - Trademark Paralegal, PETOŠEVIĆ North Macedonia
The company offers visibility for aspiring practitioners, attendance of important international events and great team building activities. It stands out among the IP law firms in Bulgaria and is an obvious choice to make a career.Dimitar Batakliev - Head of Office - Bulgaria, Attorney at Law, Trademark and Patent Attorney, European Trademark and Design Attorney, PETOŠEVIĆ Bulgaria
I feel like a member of one big family where it is easy to work and communicate with everyone, no matter what their position is. This friendly atmosphere makes even the most complicated tasks easy to complete and helps in navigating the multinational legal environment. During my relatively short time with PETOŠEVIĆ, I grew from an Associate to Head of Office. I have plenty of new tasks and challenges now and look forward to further developing my managerial skills.Oleh Karpenko - Head of Office - Ukraine, Attorney at Law, PETOŠEVIĆ Ukraine
The autonomy and trust given to me at the beginning of my journey with the firm served both as a challenge and also as the basis for honing my professional and personal skills necessary for performing the tasks assigned to me. Complex IP cases, international clients, sharing knowledge and experience with colleagues from other offices – this is what I enjoy the most at PETOŠEVIĆ. Aliya Madiyarova - Head of Office - Kazakhstan, Patent, Trademark and Design Attorney, PETOŠEVIĆ Kazakhstan
Flexibility and trust have been the cornerstones of my relationship with PETOŠEVIĆ. The company has the courage to experiment with different work models to accommodate the needs of its people and it swiftly embraces new trends and challenges. It also tends to build from within. Several years ago I started as a Paralegal, but along the way I was promoted first to Junior Associate and then to Associate.
Having been in the firm for over 14 years, I have deepened my knowledge of IP and also learned how to transfer this knowledge to others. The recognition and appreciation I receive from both the clients and my colleagues is inspirational. The work environment is professional, but relaxed and friendly at the same time – we are not held back by rigid structures.Ana Družinec - Senior Trademark and Patent Paralegal, PETOŠEVIĆ Croatia
It’s a pleasure to work for such a diverse company, with so many offices around Europe and Asia. I get to ’travel’ through several countries during working hours, learn about different cultures, mentalities, lifestyles, local legislation and so much more. The work is dynamic and interesting and I have developed immensely, both professionally and personally. I improved my soft skills, English and multitasking skills and I became more adaptable and flexible at work.
