The sale of the Zentiva company to American investors, the launch of the automotive factory Jaguar Land Rover in Nitra and the development of world-known Slovak hi-tech companies GA Drilling and Ecocapsule: these are just a few of the 50 biggest or most important transactions that Slovakia’s largest law firms were involved with. The firms provided a list of their most substantial deals to The Slovak Spectator for the third time.
This year, transaction consultancy for mergers and acquisitions dominated the deals. Lawyers advised clients during transactions in telecommunications, pharmaceutical business, energy sector, automotive industry, finance and retail. In several cases, it concerned the sale of companies whose services are used by thousands of clients, such as the merger of the Benestra and Swan operators, the fusion of insurance companies NN and Aegon, or the sale of the Zvolenská mliekareň dairy producer.
The list of the top 50 biggest and most important deals also includes real estate transactions, ground-breaking court cases and advice in financing real estate projects. Among these were the development of the SkyPark skyscrapers authored by the Zaha Hadid studio and the new neighbourhood Nuppu in the Bratislava district of Ružinov.
