The largest Czech-Slovak law firm HAVEL & PARTNERS is the most sought-after employer among law firms in the Czech Republic for the fifth time. This comes from the latest results of the survey TOP Employers, which was organised for the eighth year by the Association of Students and Graduates. In addition, the law faculty students with the best study results ranked the firm first for the third consecutive year in the Lawyer category, where international law firms dominated before HAVEL & PARTNERS. The survey TOP Employers 2019 this year involved a total of 11,577 university students.
“We are very pleased that we remain the most attractive employer among law firms in the Czech Republic for the incoming generation of lawyers. These excellent results are a confirmation to us that HAVEL & PARTNERS is a strong and established brand. I would like to thank all students for the vote in the survey, and I believe that we will start successful cooperation with many of them,” Jaroslav Havel, managing partner of the firm, says of the current award.
The results of the TOP Employers 2019 study correspond with the position of the firm in the legal market. It is the largest and most successful domestic law firm, which has also long been confirmed by the results of the Law Firm of the Year competition, in which HAVEL & PARTNERS has clearly triumphed. Currently, the firm employs more than 200 lawyers in its offices in Prague, Brno and Bratislava, of whom there are more than 100 attorneys and 29 partners, as well as about 80 students of mostly law faculties.
“Students who will become a part of our team will not only gain immediate access to extensive corporate know-how, but also, at the beginning of their careers, they will have the opportunity to work with top experts and experienced senior lawyers for the most demanding clients from among nationally and globally successful companies in their fields. Other reasons why we are an attractive employer to our younger colleagues are our extraordinary, continuous 18-year economic growth and our business development in the European context, enabling the unique professional and wage growth of talented colleagues,” says Josef Hlavička, a firm partner responsible for human resources.
