Our area of legal practice include alternative dispute resolution (ADR), intellectual property, contracts and procurement, banking, construction, energy, transport and infrastructure, public and private partnership, privatizations, investments and tax legislation.

A specific department, within our structure and in cooperation with our partners, has been created for Intellectual Property in the western Balkans. Protection of intellectual property rights in this part of Europe has been neglected for many years particularly over the past fifteen years. Securing and protecting intellectual property rights has become a pressing issue, since early 2000s our team provides our clients with expertise and experience in this field and we handle all IP related issues, such as patent filling, registrations and validations, trademark searches and registrations, design and domain.

As part of our constant development and international exposure, since 2010, we advise directly Public Authorities and Governments in their activities and reforms, with a specific objective related to transport, infrastructure and energy. In that perspective, Shala Consulting and Associates has reached international cooperation and partnerships with companies and consulting groups operating in these fields. We have a strong presence in Western African countries, central and South-Eastern Europe.
