During the Three Seas Initiative annual general meeting in Bucharest in September 2023, Austria's Dorda, Bulgaria's Boyanov & Co., Croatia's Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka, the Czech Republic's Kocian Solc Balastik, Estonia's Ellex Raidla, Hungary's Lakatos Koves & Partners, Latvia's Ellex Klavins, Lithuania's Ellex Valiunas, Poland's Wardynski and Partners, Romania's Nestor Nestor Diculescu Kingston Petersen, Slovakia's Barger Prekop, and Slovenia's Selih & Partnerji announced they formed the Three Seas Legal Alliance, in recognition of the progress made by the Three Seas Initiative.

According to the press statements, the Three Seas Legal Alliance's core goals will include supporting the development of the Three Seas Initiative in each member country; raising awareness amongst the client community of the Three Seas Initiative and the legal environment and support for investments arising thereof; and offering clients "the best legal advice if they are considering investments in any of the member countries which may form part of the Three Seas Initiative."

The Three Seas Initiative describes itself as a politically inspired, commercially driven platform for improving connectivity between twelve EU member states located between the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black seas. The initiative was born out of a shared interest in developing transport, energy, and digital infrastructure connections on the EU’s north-south axis.

Several members of the new Three Seas Legal Alliance – Boyanov & Co., Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka, Nestor Nestor Diculescu Kingston Petersen, Selih & Partnerji – were working together within SEE Legal, which will continue to run in parallel.
