  • Prosecution and enforcement prowess with a cross-border slant characterises the service on offer at PETOŠEVIĆ. The Ljubljana branch specialises in the astute administration of extensive portfolios and the orchestration of customs seizures for prestigious brands. Oppositions and appeals before the SIPO have kept the team busy of late, but it has also been active in cracking down on parallel imports.
