HAVEL & PARTNERS contributed to the prestigious International Comparative Legal Guide to: Mergers & Acquisitions 2019 which focuses on mergers and acquisitions and is compiled with the participation of major international and local law firms.
The guide offers summary information from 53 countries/jurisdictions covering region-specific rules for mergers and acquisitions and related legal regulations, as well as regulatory rules and relevant institutions. The chapter dealing with the specific features of the Czech Republic has been prepared by the managing partner Jaroslav Havel and our firm’s equity partner Jan Koval.
M&A consulting services provided by our transaction team of over 70 lawyers including 16 partners (the largest team of this kind in Central Europe) in general involve preparation of a detailed transaction structure based on our expertise in the field; due diligence of the target aimed at establishing its current legal, tax, accounting and operational situation; and drafting and discussing transaction documentation and transaction closing in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.

According to the prestigious global rating agencies Mergermarket, Thomson Reuters and EMIS DealWatch, these results contribute on a long-term basis to our top position as regards the number of completed transactions on the Czech, Slovak and Central European legal markets.
