HAVEL & PARTNERS, the largest Czech and Slovak law firm, is continuing its success in 2014 and 2016 by becoming the only Czech law firm in the Czech Republic to receive the prestigious Czech Business Superbrands award for 2019. The prize is given to brands that have an excellent reputation, carry important values for customers and have built a personal relationship with them. It is awarded based on unified criteria and methods of the Superbrands organisation in nearly 90 countries on five continents. The organisation has been identifying the best brands in the Czech Republic since 2013.
“This is the fourth time in total we have received the prestigious Czech Business Superbrands award; nevertheless, this is the first time we have been awarded the prize after the change of our name to HAVEL & PARTNERS. We are pleased that after the clear victory in last year’s Law Firm of the Year awards, we managed to succeed in a purely business competition where brands are benchmarked against criteria such as popularity, brand building, innovations and prestige. Our success may have been facilitated by the fact that the year 2018 was a financial success for us,” says Jaroslav Havel, HAVEL & PARTNERS’ managing partner.
Relevant brands are nominated for the awards using the database of all registered trademarks disclosed for this purpose by the Czech Intellectual Property Office. The nominations are also based on business results generated by the Superbrands organisation working closely with Bisnode, an expert in business information. The final decision on the Superbrands award holders is then up to a committee of experts comprising renowned professionals in business, communication, marketing, media and marketing research.
Other non-legal awards
HAVEL & PARTNERS has also received numerous other awards recognising brand excellence or financial stability. For the fifth time in a row, we became the most sought-after employer among law firms in the Czech Republic in the TOP Employers competition (2015 – 2019). Since 2011, we have achieved the AAA – Excellent rating in the ČEKIA Stability Award rating compiled as part of the CZECH TOP 100 survey, which ranks us among the 2% financially most stable firms in the Czech Republic. In addition, as the winner of the Office of the Year awards in 2016, we were also named as the best working environment in the Czech Republic among law firms.
