To Know What the Future Holds – Duration of Court and Arbitral Proceedings in Serbia

The resolution of civil disputes through legal proceedings is crucial for ensuring justice and enabling business relationships to continue.

A key consideration when initiating any civil proceeding is the expected duration, as a timely resolution is important for clients.
