HAVEL & PARTNERS, the largest Czech-Slovak law firm, has won the competition of the CEE Legal Matters magazine monitoring the most significant transactions in the CEE region. It has received the CEE Deal of the Year Award for advising the Dr. Max company of the Penta Investments Group during its acquisition of A&D Pharma Group, a Romanian company.
The M&A team of HAVEL & PARTNERS led by one of the law firm’s partners, Václav Audes, participated on the transaction. “The client used our knowledge of the legal and entrepreneurial environment of the CEE region as well as our know-how in some regulatory matters. We focus both on cross-border transactions and advisory related to entering foreign markets, forming international holding structures, protecting investment and optimizing taxes in the course of international expansion,” says Václav Audes, describing the team’s know-how that has been developed over many years.
Dr. Max operates pharmacy networks in Romania and four other European countries – the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Poland and Serbia.
