Rajkovic focuses on complex intellectual property disputes, with particular expertise in media. According to Gecic Law, "he handles a plethora of matters arising out of client need for compliance with increasingly complex regulation and infringement and dispute resolution matters in the field of intellectual property and media law, as well as contracts in the area of intellectual property and media, including publishing contracts, licenses, and other contracts which include different issues related to intellectual property and cooperation in the field of media services." The firm reports that "Jovan also has a very robust and extensive experience in advising clients on all matters relating to labor & employment and corporate/M&A transactions." Finally, according to Gecic Law, "he also boasts an extremely intricate expertise in Sports Law, as a former fencer and one of the most decorated head coaches of a female fencing team in recent times." The firm reports that "he served as a member of both the Disciplinary Committee and the Commission for the preparation of the Statute of the Fencing Federation of Serbia, and a judge on the Arbitration Tribunal for Sports of the Olympic Committee of Serbia."
Prior to joining Gecic Law, Jovan served as an in-house lawyer for the members of Pink Media Group, where – according to Gecic Law – "he successfully represented a wide variety of businesses from media & technology startups to large private firms."
“Jovan’s addition enhances our firm’s capabilities in a number of practices where our clients depend on us for cutting edge solutions in complex, multi-disciplinary matters,” says Gecic Law Managing Partner Bogdan Gecic. “True to our values, the firm is committed to hiring talented and entrepreneurial lawyers, as we continue to expand our practice and our presence in Serbia and the region.”
