An Immigrant and Refugee
Attorney Damjan DeNoble is an immigrant himself, having been forced to move to the U.S. from Sarajevo during the period of the wars in the former-Yugoslavia. Along with his family he has experienced the full gamut of the American immigrant experience, from leaving everything behind as a refugee and successfully navigating the visa and citizenship process, to finding success in America and working to consolidate holdings in the U.S. with his family's holdings in the former-Yugoslavia. He brings lessons from that experience - including the need or compassion, diligent planning, and patience - to each and every client interaction at Bull City Lawyer.
A Successful Consultant and Lawyer
Damjan founded Bull City Lawyer after a successful, nearly decade-long career as a business consultant and legal counsel in Asia, the last four years of which were as a partner with Rubicon Strategy Group, the leading consulting group for multi-national healthcare companies entering and operating in China, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Singapore. During his work at Rubicon Strategy Group he authored and edited three full-length books on the healthcare economies of Vietnam and Myanmar, and the senior care market in China, and his work and thoughts on Asia's economy have been quoted or cited by Reuters, the Atlantic, CNBC, the Economic Times, the Sinocism Newsletter, the Sinica Podcast, Businessweek, and many other respected news, blog and scholarly publications. He still writes a syndicated, regular column on healthcare markets in Asia for the Nikkei Asian Review.
Previous to Rubicon Strategy Group, he worked at the law offices of Harris & Moure, pllc, a leading boutique international law firm that is widely admired for its work in emerging markets and for its oft-quoted China Law Blog.
