Vladimir Galjak is a well-known Serbian lawyer, who is present in the public with his views, contrary to the ruling party in Serbia, led by President Aleksandar Vucic. Together with his fellow lawyers, he was a supporter of the protests in Serbia against violence, and he was among the 15 Belgrade lawyers who in 2015 submitted an initiative to the Serbian Assembly to withdraw the law on the construction of the Belgrade Waterfront project.
In 2020, he took over the stake in "Sloboden Pecat" from his friend, Aleksandar Rodic, the former owner of the largest Balkan media group, "Adria Media Group", which had its own media outlets in North Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia. The takeover takes place after Rodic sold its stake to people close to the government in Serbia, after public disagreements with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
