HAVEL & PARTNERS becomes the absolute winner of the Law Firm of the Year 2021, achieving the best results ever

01. 11. 2021

The largest Czech-Slovak law firm HAVEL & PARTNERS has confirmed its unique position on the market, having won five awards in the 14th year of the Czech Law Firm of the Year. Like last year, HAVEL & PARTNERS received the main award for the Best Czech Law Firm and the award for the Best Client Service, and in addition, it triumphed in three categories – Mergers & Acquisitions, Telecommunications & Media and Health Law. The award ceremony was held on 1 November at Žofín Palace in Prague.

In addition to its repeated victory at the Chambers Europe Awards, the most prestigious global ranking, the firm once again dominated the Czech Law Firm of the Year awards, organised by EPRAVO.CZ under the auspices of the Czech Bar Association and the Ministry of Justice of the Czech Republic.

HAVEL & PARTNERS’ track record in this competition confirms its long-standing position as the leader in the Czech legal market: the firm has won the main award for the Best Czech Law Firm and the award for the Best Client Service for the 5th time in the last seven years, in addition to winning in three sector categories.

This is our biggest achievement ever and the best result in the history of this competition as well – no other law firm has ever won so many awards in one year, including the main and client awards. We are very appreciative of this; it is the best ending for our firm’s 20th anniversary,” said Jaroslav Havel, the managing partner. “I would like to thank all my colleagues for their dedication, loyalty and teamwork, as well as our clients for their trust which motivates us to continuously work on ourselves, enhance our services and bring them added value,” added Mr Havel.

The triumph in the M&A category for the third time in a row confirms HAVEL & PARTNERS’ leading position in this area in the market, not only in the Czech Republic. The firm has also won a number of awards in Slovakia and has been at the top of the list in terms of the number of completed transactions in the entire CEE region for more than 10 years.

And this is even the seventh time the firm has received the award in Telecommunications and Media, which is one of its most important specialisations and its experts have extensive experience in the largest telecoms law projects in the Czech and Slovak markets.

One of the new developments in this year’s awards was the introduction of the Health Law category, which was immediately dominated by HAVEL & PARTNERS, which is another key area of its specialisation.

In 15 categories HAVEL & PARTNERS was ranked among the highly recommended firms (top tier). In Criminal Law, in which HAVEL & PARTNERS is not directly involved, SEIFERT A PARTNEŘI, HAVEL & PARTNERS’ exclusive partner in criminal law advisory, was named among the top-ranked law firms.

"These achievements testify not only to the high level of the services provided, but also to the exceptional versatility of the practice groups within the firm and the excellent know-how of our colleagues,” added Jaroslav Havel.

According to the results of all previous years of the awards, HAVEL & PARTNERS remains the most successful and all-encompassing law firm in the Czech Republic and Slovakia based on the total number of all nominations and awards.
