Karanovic & Partners has announced it entered into an agreement with Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats to provide ongoing pro bono legal support on contracts, scholarships, and copyright matters.

According to Karanovic & Partners, GRUBB was founded in 2006 in the UK and runs educational and artistic programs, working predominantly in Serbia with Roma children and youth. "Thanks to GRUBB, young Roma are given the possibility to make good use of many otherwise expensive educational materials and career management services in order to develop their skills and grow artistically . . . Internationally renowned artists joined GRUBB on a voluntary basis, supporting and encouraging them. They focused their time and energy on mentoring and bringing out the very best in the young Roma participants. This mutually supportive artistic relationship and nurturing of talent brings to life many works of authorship . . . One of the most noticeable is undoubtedly the female Roma band Pretty Loud. Through their lyrics and writing, they talk about their everyday challenges and hopes as well as more complex topics such as race, representation, and social justice."

Karanovic & Partners announced it joined GRUBB seeking to empower young Roma women and men, while stating the following about its involvement in the project: "GRUBB acquired essential databases of educational materials [used] in its work with all participants, including the performers . . . During their artistic training, the young attendees create numerous copyright-protected works. Communication to the public of these works has to be regulated. This is where Karanovic & Partners steps in – as pro bono legal support. We counsel GRUBB on contract drafting, copyright, and scholarships."

The firm further stated: "We are proud of sharing our expertise. Therefore, we are constantly working hard on developing various projects with a common goal to educate and empower youngsters. Why GRUBB? Again, in their own words: 'Because those who are silent must be able to sing. Because art is a homeland for those who have none. Because education is the shortest way to freedom.' We are proud to have been given the opportunity to participate in such a critical pro bono project; it has certainly made us richer as people."
