We have the largest team specialising in technology and associated business fields in the Czech and Slovak market. The members of the team are not only technology enthusiasts and active technology users but some are also IT graduates. Their extensive experience and the unique composition of the team makes our law firm able to address any technology law issues and projects. It makes no difference whether you are a start-up, an SME, or a global technology giant – we make no distinction between our clients and provide all with the highest level of legal services.

Whistleblowing. We work with these and many other concepts every day and are able to advise you on all related legal and tax issues, problems and disputes.

Our clients are not only foreign technology giants, large or medium-sized Czech and Slovak technology companies or public institutions, but also small start-ups. With several of them we have experienced both the initial development and launch of their product on the market, as well as their successful transformation from a small promising start-up into a large international company, the exit of their founders and their subsequent operation.

We see our clients as business partners. We help them grow, protect their rights and save them time and money. Our clients can therefore focus on their technology business and do not have to deal with unpleasant legal issues and problems – that's what we're here for.
