In November, the largest Czech-Slovak law firm HAVEL & PARTNERS welcomed a new partner – Martin Peckl (44). Until now, he was a partner in the Czech law firm Vejmelka & Wünsch. An expert in mergers and acquisitions, real estate law, business law and company law, and a Czech and German native speaker, Martin is becoming a key member of the specialised team at HAVEL & PARNERS providing comprehensive legal services to German-speaking clientele.

With his long-term experience as a lawyer working for clients seated in the DACH region, Martin Peckl will be co-managing the team along with Marek Lošan, Adéla Havlová and other partners,” commentedJaroslav Havel, the firm’s managing partner, on Martin’s engagement as a new partner in the firm.
