Our Bratislava office forms part of a strong and long-established Central European practice, which includes offices in Prague and Warsaw. Our offices regularly work together on cross-border, multijurisdictional transactions for multinational corporations and financial institutions.

We combine local knowledge with international expertise on complex national and international transactions, regulatory matters and disputes, and work closely on matters involving EU law with our Brussels and other Western European offices. As an adviser to established and emerging Slovak Republic-based and global companies, our office is one of the eminent all-around legal practices in Bratislava.

Our Bratislava office is a proud partner of Faculty of Law of the Pan-European University in Bratislava. We are pleased to support the faculty in furthering legal expertise throughout the Slovak Republic, and promoting its unique and exceptional educational commitment to merging legal theory with practice.

Our professional-level language skills enable us to work for our clients in Slovak, English, Czech, Ukrainian, Russian and Italian.
