About us

Dear visitor, 

The main goal of our firm is to provide comprehensive legal service to foreign and Slovak companies establishing their presence and expanding their activities in Slovakia.

We are a Slovak law firm seated in Košice (metropolis of eastern Slovakia). We have served more than 100  foreign investors active mostly in eastern and central Slovakia as well as numerous domestic businesses.

We specialize in areas of commercial, civil, company, competition, labor and real estate law.  

The Slovak legal order has undergone profound changes since the early 1990’s. The socialist legal order was superseded by several “layers” of the transitory legal regulations. Later those transitory regulations have been replaced by legislation resembling legal order of Western Europe.  

We have spent those years serving investors and assisting large and medium size companies going through the intricacies of all those changes.   

During our carriers we developed both - experience required to serve investors and network of collaborators and partners in Slovakia and abroad.

Thus we can offer professional services at local, national and international levels.
