I come from a family where law and sports have been passing on from generation to generation. Legal discussions within the environment that shaped me while growing up, in my opinion, significantly sharpened my sense of law, way of thinking, argumentation and negotiation skills, and finally, methods for developing strategies for alternative legal solutions outside the framework.

My family set an example of diligence. Thus, I followed their advice that I should – if I wanted to be a good lawyer – get practical experience as soon as possible. During my studies, I began practicing law in our family law firm Cerar Hafner in Ljubljana. Due to my proficient knowledge of English, I was able to practice law in international offices. Afterward, I became an in-house lawyer for a successful Slovenian bank, in lieu of my desire for in-depth knowledge for commercial law and the field of banking and finance. Currently, I am continuing our family tradition within the scope of my own law firm, whereby I am still collaborating in business with the Cerar family.

Since I believe that one’s character and principles are also determined by activities that are not fundamentally of business-related nature, I am proud to emphasize that I have been actively involved in sports since as long as I can remember, and I have gained so much from it. Foremost I trained and competed in kickboxing, where I was a multiple national champion and a member of the Slovenian national team. Nowadays, I try to implement the knowledge and skills I acquired through sports also in business, and because of my love for sports law (and the fields that consist of it (e.g. labour law)), specialisation in this field is a special feature of the law firm Cerar Žugelj. I obtained considerable experience in the field of sports law due to my involvement in sports (from legal consultations to assistance in finding sponsors or club financing, as well as resolving complex contractual relationships and disputes among players and agents).


A good attorney-at-law is required to comprehensively understand clients’ problems and wishes. The fundamental task of a lawyer is to listen to clients, understand them, put himself in their shoes and examine all possibilities for solving a problem, not only legally (e.g., recovery of a claim) but also alternatively (e.g., sale of a claim). A good lawyer must present the client with realistic possibilities of success and profitability of the dispute (cost estimation) and consult with the client before choosing an adequate solution.

Financial remuneration

Regarding the payment, we really try come to an agreement with the client, taking into account the most economical option for the client, the complexity of the matter, the successful outcome probability, and the manner and scope of work.

We charge our services according to:

Additionally, many clients do not know that their attorney may be and will be paid by an insurance company against which the party is claiming damage. Consequently, attorneys 

are – unlike other companies dealing with damages claims – actually free-of-charge for the clients in disputes with insurance companies.
