Is it possible in Slovenia to obtain information on pending litigation against a company, its shareholders or legal representatives?

There is no public access to information on pending litigation. A party may ask particular court to confirm whether certain entity is a party to a pending litigation, however, legal interest has to be evidenced to obtain such information.

Otherwise, the courts (each for itself) publish on their websites the schedules of the hearings (which are not necessarily up-to-date) and in such public announcements the names of the parties involved and the claimed amounts may be seen.

Judgements are however public and often published by the Supreme court (whereby when published the names of the parties are anonymized; search is possible in Slovenian language only). Copies of the judgements may be requested also according to the Public Information Access Act (in such case the confidential and personal data in the judgement are blackened).

There are some Slovenian companies specializing in research on other companies (and also making credit assessments). These companies mainly follow official publications and acquire information on potential pending litigations from public sources.
