ABOUT US

PERSONAL

We are not building huge factory with hundreds of lawyers where you will see the partner only at first meeting and when handing out an invoice. We aim to provide first-class legal services based on long-term personal relationships, while working with pleasant people and for pleasant people.

REGIONAL

We are based in Brno. We perceive Brno to be strategic crossroad allowing us to be easily available for clients in Prague, Vienna, Olomouc, Zlín, Ostrava, or Bratislava.

TRADITIONAL

We are no longer young enough to write it on the web; we will soon start third decade providing legal services to corporate clients and private investors.

HOW DO WE WORK?

We do not believe in general legal practice and we do not pretend that everybody is able to take care of everything. We dedicate teams of specialists in their fields for every project. When working on projects, we cooperate with notaries, investment or real property consultants, bankers, architects, or any other technical specialists. We are well aware of the fact that clients engage our services in order to achieve their defined business goals. We insist that our colleagues always make themselves be familiar with the client’s field of activities and its particularities. It is only understanding the client’s business operation, principles and objectives that enables us to address their matters in a truly efficient manner.

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

We specialise in legal services to corporate clients and private investors. Our main focus is on acquisitions and investments, real estate, information technologies, general commercial and corporate law. We provide legal services in Czech, English, German, and French.
