HAVEL & PARTNERS, the largest independent law firm in Central Europe, has again defended its title of the most sought-after employer among law firms in the TOP Zaměstnavatelé (TOP Employers) survey. Organised annually by the Association of Students and Graduates, the survey ranks employers nominated by university students, i.e. their potential employees, in several categories. A total of 11,491 students submitted their responses for the survey, assessing companies in terms of the work environment, professional training offered, corporate social responsibility and prospects of future high earnings. HAVEL & PARTNERS was also ranked as the best law firm for the fourth time in a row in the special category “Lawyer”, which used to be dominated by international companies.
“It is our exceptional pleasure that we remain the law firm of first choice for students at faculties of law. Once they start working at our firm, we try to offer them extensive options for professional development, access to in-house know-how and promotion. Let me thank all the students for their participation in the survey and I look forward to our future cooperation,” said managing partner Jaroslav Havel in response to the award the law firm had just received.
Even though winning the TOP Employers 2020 survey is a non-legal award, it clearly stands for the firm’s strong brand and its leading position on the legal market. HAVEL & PARTNERS is the largest, most successful and most comprehensive Czech law firm as demonstrated by its compelling long-term results in the prestigious Law Firm of the Year awards. With 220 lawyers and tax advisors, the firm not only provides comprehensive legal advisory but has also extended its portfolio of tax services. It employs about ninety students in six offices in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
Commenting on this year’s results, Josef Hlavička, the partner responsible for human resource management, said: “I strongly believe our significant competitive edge is that we enable our students to be in regular contact and work closely together with experienced senior lawyers and top experts focusing on individual legal practice and business areas. The students do not have to wait long to work for the most important and most demanding clients. Other reasons why students prefer working at our law firm in the long run certainly include the brand’s stability, its firm position on the market, continuous economic growth and, last but not least, prospects of gradual and swift career growth.”Download PDF
