Dear Clients and Business Friends,
In our continuous efforts to enhance the communication and mutual connection between you and our law firm, we continue to adopt new communication tools, modern formats and the digital environment. We also replaced the Legal News, our traditional newsletter, with the H&P Magazine.
The H&P Magazine, issued biannually, covers current topics that are both relevant to the entire society and related to our legal and tax services. Each issue includes various topic-specific articles, interviews and analyses, presentation of our key services, an overview of the most significant transactions we’ve been involved in, current awards and our law firm’s other activities, such as a summary of our pro bono activities and courses offered by our ACADEMY.
Most of the topics of the first issue are affected by the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic and trends triggered by this uneasy period of time. For instance, our technology and IT experts will navigate you through the exceptionally relevant and discussed topic of digitalization. Our Slovak colleagues’ article looks at the same topic in relation to a spike in e-shops and e-commerce. In interviews with our partners specialising in real estate as well as insolvency and restructuring experts, we analyse the impacts of the crisis on these areas, which will, in our view, become ever more important. In this respect, we are at our clients’ full disposal to respond to their new needs. Since the Magazine also features some timeless topics, you will learn, for instance, about why Czech and Slovak entrepreneurs should get inspired – as far as the administration of their property is concerned – by the Porsche or Tomáš Baťa families.
Since March, we have seen an unprecedented level of solidarity, strengthening our cooperation still further and working exceptionally hard to provide maximum support to our clients in these difficult times. I am very glad that all our colleagues have stayed both healthy and committed to further work. I believe the numerous awards that we received for our work over the past few weeks have played a role, most of them relying on our clients’ testimonials and the independent evaluation of acknowledged experts. To name a few, we received the most prestigious global Chambers Europe Awards for being the best law firm in the Czech Republic, excellent ratings and many awards in the Law Firm of the Year competition in Slovakia and previously also in the Czech Republic, winning, among other things, the title of the most popular law firm among clients in both countries, the prestigious Czech Business Superbrands award, which is granted to the best brands on the market, for the fifth time, and we won the title of the most sought-after employer in the Czech Republic in our field of business for the sixth time.
We would not have achieved these outstanding results without your trust. I strongly believe that our cooperation will continue in the future and that we all will come out of this difficult time even stronger.
I also believe that you will find much practical information, interesting insight and inspiration in our new H&P Magazine.
On behalf of all my colleagues, let me wish you nice summer days. I look forward to our further cooperation!
