Mr. Haxhimusa has successfully represented before the Courts and other competent authorities some well-known corporations, in the protection of the rights deriving from industrial property and has provided acceptable legislative options, considering that this area is not sufficiently examined and practiced in the Kosovar circumstances. As the legal representative of some of the known local corporations, has arrived to successfully affirm the European business standards which promote the full freedom of business out of the state paternalism and has in continuation attacked the trends of the customs bureaucracy, inherited from the previous system for “gripping” the private business and putting barriers to the development of free trade under the Market Laws. He has successfully defended the interests of some corporations with a rich background in the field of prevention of tax evasion, for what possesses affinity and deep knowledge, in view of the fact that his expertise has been many times required and welcomed by special Governmental Agencies. With his emphasized sense and affinity, he focused the essential issues of Commercial Law in cases where the rights of importers are infringed, without any vacillation to address them to the Supreme Court.
