I am Ines Grah, attorney at law, a graduate of the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana. During my studies I participated in the contest “European Law Moot Court”. Due to a special interest in European Union law, I've written a diploma thesis titled: “Financial crisis and state aid”. Then I continued my doctoral studies, writing a dissertation titled: “Individuals and direct access to the Court of Justice of the European Union - Action for annulment”.
I believe that progress is possible only with continuous upgrading of skills and therefore I regularly attend seminars. I had a special opportunity to do an international internship at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg. In the cabinet of the Advocate General I helped with the preparation of opinions in various areas of law. This was a giant step towards great understanding the European Union law and litigation before the Court of Justice of the European Union.
During studies I started acquiring professional experience at law and notary offices. After graduation I began working at the Agency for Agricultural Markets and Rural Development, where I worked as a legal consultant (in-house lawyer) in the Department of Legal Affairs and Public Procurement. I gained extensive knowledge and experience in the areas of administrative, fiscal and commercial law, calls for tender and public procurement procedures within the system of EU funds. Because of my desire to work in the judiciary I was initially a trainee at the Higher Court in Ljubljana, first at the Criminal and then at the Civil Section of the District Court. After I passed the bar exam, I started working as a Senior Judicial clerk at the Labour and Social Court in Ljubljana. In the preparation of decisions in legal proceedings I deepened my knowledge in the areas of civil, property, criminal, labor and social security law. This path led me to attorneyship, acting as an attorney candidate in law firms.
I continue my career independently, with the vision of establishing and managing a law office that will provide legal services of the highest quality.
