The ODI Law Firm, as part of what it describes as "a firm-wide commitment to pro bono work,” has "ventured into art” by agreeing to provide pro bono legal services to emerging Macedonian artist Milan Andov.
According to ODI, "Milan is an inspirational artist with a unique and distinctive style, producing breathtaking art in themes relating to the subconscious and the unconscious extremities of love, rage, hate, and characters displaying their deep psychological state. Milan has received numerous awards for his work which has been described as 'art where you feel the soul, heart and mindful interpretations of emotion and sensuality leap from the canvas and draw you into the depths of the composition.’"
When contacted by CEE Legal Matters, ODI Marketing Manager Sam Willis explained that “Mr. Andov approached us with a request for pro bono legal assistance in relation to a very exciting project he intends to develop. Mr. Andov intends to develop an on-line platform where emerging artists from Europe can promote and sell their artworks.” After reviewing Andov’s project the firm’s partners agreed to enrol him in the ODI Pro Bono Initiative, and the firm anticipates advising him on intellectual property, information society services, e-payments, consumer protection, and tax matters.
ODI Partner Gjorgji Georgievski, from the firm's Macedonia office, will coordinate ODI’s assistance to Andov. According to Georgievski, "Andov is an exceptional artist and I am very pleased that he approached ODI for legal assistance. I understand how difficult it is for emerging artists to establish themselves in the artworks market and, therefore, very much appreciate Mr. Andov’s efforts to develop an on-line service which will serve as a promotion vehicle for artists. We are very excited to be a part of this project and assist Mr. Andov and other emerging artists from Europe to get noticed.”
