Havel & Partners defended its top spot in the Intellectual Property category of the latest edition of the Largest Law Firms ranking, composed by The Slovak Spectator and the Sme daily. Each of the 10 largest law firms in this field were permitted to reference one deal, details of which could be published.
Room for boutique law firms
For the first time, law firms with revenues below €1 million could also be listed in the ranking this year.
“After consulting the market players we decided to take into consideration law firms with lower revenues because big full-service law firms do not compete for clients solely with one another, but also with smaller specialised, so-called boutique, law firms,” said Ján Pallo, publisher of The Slovak Spectator.
