HAVEL & PARTNERS, the largest Czech-Slovak law firm, is about to notably strengthen the team of its Slovak office in Bratislava. On 1 July 2018, Štěpán Štarha, managing associate and newly appointed partner, is taking over some of the responsibility for the development of the office. Bratislava will be further reinforced by senior associate Juraj Dubovský and associate Štefan Potočňák.
“We have agreed with Štěpán that he will work more days in Bratislava, where his family will also move. At the same time, he will continue to look after his clients in Prague and Brno. He will still focus in particular on advisory for technological and IT companies as well as on comprehensive projects for financial, energy and telecommunication companies. I believe that Štěpán’s experience will help us further develop our services and achieve good financial results in Slovakia,” says managing partner Jaroslav Havel about the promotion and work of Štěpán Štarha in Bratislava.
“We want our Bratislava office to see further strong development also in the months to come. That’s why we have agreed with two other colleagues who have worked mainly in Prague so far that they will move to Slovakia where they originally come from. Senior associate Juraj Dubovský specializes in representing clients in court and arbitration proceedings as well as insolvency and restructuring while Štefan Potočňák is an expert in civil law and IP/IT, media and telecommunication contracts,” says Jaroslav Havel.
HAVEL & PARTNERS will have 27 partners in total from 1 July 2018. It is not only Štěpán Štarha but also Ondřej Florián who has been appointed to the highest managerial position. Ondřej was managing associate in the advisory group focusing on private clients from the ranks of the most significant entrepreneurs and their families, top managers, investors, artists and professional athletes, including about 400 of the wealthiest Czechs and Slovaks. Štěpán and Ondřej also have in common the fact that they both started working for the law firm as junior associates in 2010. Their career reflects the law firm’s long-term effort to nurture further generations of professionals who are both lawyers and managers faster than usually seen in the legal bar.
