Slovakia

Achieving business success in highly regulated markets requires effective management of commercial risks and of your supplier and customer relationships. Whether you are an international or domestic business active in the CEE region, you can rely on our advice on complex and multi-jurisdictional contractual arrangements and our knowledge of the commercial issues facing the sectors in which you operate. We have advised many international companies on entering CEE markets over the years and continue to assist them as they grow their businesses in the region.

With over 350 commercial and regulatory lawyers across 34 countries, our multi-disciplinary teams are trained to understand the cultural and business factors impacting your commercial arrangements. We organise our teams around sectors and industries relevant to you, including financial services, manufacturing, automotive, consumer products, energy, hotels and leisure, infrastructure and projects, life sciences, supply and logistics, real estate and construction, technology, telecoms, media and sports. We can guide you towards the best business outcome, whether you require advice on commercial contracts, supply services, e-commerce, IT or telecoms agreements, data protection, design and manufacturing, advertising, sponsorship and marketing, consumer sales, software licensing, outsourcing, or sales, agency, distribution and franchise agreements.

The greatest strength of the CMS team in Slovakia is their ability to combine their knowledge of EU law with their expertise in statutory regulations in the various business sectors in Slovakia. Based on this expertise, we offer our clients first-class advice on all aspects of commercial issues such as consumer protection, personal data protection, employee protection or cross-border services, whilst always considering the applicable EU law.
