We help to build a long-lasting business strategy, while informing the client about the legal risks, advantages and disadvantages of the chosen business strategy.
Our goal is to go beyond the mere interpretation of the laws and instead provide our clients with the legal solutions that will help them achieve their business objectives.
Civil law is a part of our everyday life and business.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in advising both corporate and individual clients in all civil law matters, such as civil litigation, property law, real estate law, drafting and/or reviewing real estate contracts for complex real estate transactions (including leasing and other financing arrangements), construction and engineering law, IP law, law of telecommunications, product liability, family law.
Human resources represent the main added value to any company regardless of the industry. It is your employees that can guarantee the sustainable development of your company and keep it ahead of its competition or cause substantial damage to your reputation and financial situation.
We provide all human resources related paperwork in accordance with the applicable regulations and good business practices, so as to ensure your maximum protection and compliance along with the satisfaction and motivation of your employees.

Defence in white collar crime cases is one of our key practices. The borderline between what is allowed and what is not often lacks precision in relevant regulations, which means criminal offences can only be avoided through sound legal advice given at the right time.
