The Czech Republic remains one of the most economically and politically stable markets in Central and Eastern Europe. A well-educated workforce and strong tradition in engineering make the country a breeding ground for innovative start-ups and have created a stimulating environment for foreign investment.
CMS has been present in Prague since 1991, and our team – made up of more than 30 lawyers – has extensive experience and knowledge of the local legal and business landscape. We also have English law qualified resources available ‘on the ground’ to work in the Czech Republic, and for the most part staff our deals locally.
Whether you are planning an acquisition with a complex finance structure, an investment in a highly regulated sector or facing a dispute in a local or international court, our lawyers have the experience to take you through all the relevant steps and procedures to bring your endeavour to a successful end.
By actively participating in the market liberalisation, our lawyers have helped shape the regulated industries and particularly the financial, telecoms and energy sectors. Our commercial, regulatory and disputes team advises clients on matters of strategic importance to their business, such as litigation, regulatory investigations and preparing and negotiating commercial agreements. We remain one of the leading legal advisors on headline mergers and acquisitions, real estate and financing transactions.
If your business operates outside of the Czech Republic, your legal issues will also cross the border. CMS offers a unique coverage of Europe and beyond. With our geographical coverage we can provide you with a seamless service and a single point of contact.
