Bojanovic & Partners has succesfully represented Mr. Nikola Mikic, a former captain of the Red Star Belgrade football club, in an arbitration against the Turkish football club Manisaspor Kulubu Dernegi.

Although the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber initially denied Mikic's claims in January 2016, Bojanovic & Partners' Dispute Resolution Partner Filip Blagojevic successfully appealed the FIFA DRC's decision before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which reversed the DRC's ruling and fund in favor of Mikic in December 2016.

The parties subsequently reached an agreement during the winter transfer window and Manisaspor engaged Mikic until the end of the season 2018/2019, which, Bojanovic & Partners reports, "proved that reaching an amicable solution is possible even after the arbitral proceedings."
