The transactions belonged among the top deals of the largest law firms in Slovakia. This included the sale of the Sygic technological company, another ownership change of the Skylink satellite services provider, and a new investor entering the Hopin transport app. There was also the conclusion of a merger of two insurance companies, NN and Aegon.
