Who are we?

A law firm for innovative companies and successful businesspeople

What we do

Our law firm is a place where you can meet professional and experienced lawyers who will take the time to understand you and your specific legal needs.

We formulate our advice clearly and are always looking for legal solutions that really work. We are convinced that the law should only be a means to achieve your goals, not the goal itself.

Within the Czech Republic, we will provide you with legal services in Prague, Brno and Ostrava. We are also the founding members of the Arcliffe network, thanks to which we can provide you with legal services in Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. We will advise you in Czech, Slovak, Russian, German, Italian and English.

How we do it

We recognize that you may need legal assistance from time to time for a variety of reasons, and that it may be difficult for you to figure out where to go and to find someone who can answer your questions. That's why we're here. We will guide you through the implementation of your plan from the beginning to its successful completion.

We often come up with innovations even in areas where established inefficient practices have been used for many years.
