The managing partners of the office are Stanislav Dvořák and Bernard Hager, the firm announced in a press release.

A team of more than 30 lawyers will work at the offices in Prague and Bratislava, providing clients with legal services especially in key practice areas of advice in transactions, corporate law and restructuring, labour law and energy, environmental law and construction law, including support in cross-border projects.

“This strategic step was born out of our clients’ demand for expanded services and regional legal support,” Dvořák, managing partner of the Prague office of Dvořák Hager & Partners said as cited in the press release. “We already have been working with our colleagues in Slovakia for a long time. We have implemented a number of successful projects together and share the same approach and values with regard to client service and quality of work. Together we can work more effectively on behalf of our clients and offer them greater certainty and new opportunities.”

Hager, a Slovak and Austrian lawyer and managing partner of the Bratislava office of Dvořák Hager & Partners, added that the merger would permit them to offer their services in the framework of cross-border projects and to appeal to new partners and potential clients.
