We know that a lot is at stake. That’s why you will appreciate our expertise all the more.

We don’t rest on our laurels
We don’t just deal with the here and now. We take inspiration from abroad. We follow modern trends and anticipate developments in regulatory rules and, on this basis, we moderate the discussion between clients and the regulator so that together we find innovative, but also functional and sustainable solutions.
We know the regulatory sector from the inside
This is thanks to our many years’ experience of working together with Czech and European bodies and associations, but also through the secondments of our lawyers and junior lawyers to various financial institutions. We don’t “advise” only remotely. Therefore, we know how to help with specific problems and find solutions that will work in practice, in your practice, and not just on paper.
We know our clients well
Even a great idea will be worthless if it cannot be applied in practice. That’s why we talk to our clients and go over the pros and cons. We are interested in what is important to them. We know them inside out. As a result, we are able to take into account even the smallest details. The solutions we propose are comprehensive and directly linked to their daily operations.
