Noerr advised on WebSupport deal: moving even closer to clients and the market with “Digital Business”

Noerr Slovakia is pleased to announce its new department “Digital Business”

Slovakia, like all other national economies is being changed at an amazing rate by technology. Companies in the field break new ground almost hourly, and law firms that offer their service to such companies must keep up.

WebSupport s.r.o. is a success story in Slovakia and central Europe. Home grown, it is the dynamic technology startup which became the leading Slovak web host and main registrar of .sk and .eu domains.

When Sweden’s Loopia Group AB wanted to purchase 100% of WebSupport s.r.o., they needed a firm with both the local knowledge and a team with the technical expertise to handle the deal.

To build on this existing competitive advantage, we will implement the expertise of our German colleagues in the new department ‘Digital Business’ in Slovakia.
