Prestigious international law firm rankings guide Chambers and Partners again gave Eversheds Sutherland Dvořák Hager its highest ranking (Band 1) for employment law in its 2019 issue. The Slovak office has been newly ranked in employment law, too.
The company also achieved a high ranking in corporate law / M&A and in energy.
Chambers published the following client evaluation:
Tomáš Procházka: „Mr Procházka is in my view among the absolute best advocates when it comes to labour law in the country. His ability to explain and interpret specific legal terminology and concepts is unparalleled and so is his ability to take a holistic view on legal requirements of a company."
Veronika Odrobinová: "Her skill to talk to people that have no legal background is unmatched, and her depth of knowledge and experience in this field has always been much appreciated."
Stanislav Servus: "I particularly appreciate that he is really patient with the aggressive attacks of the opposing side. He is an absolute pro, he turned the whole thing around and really made a difference. He is a strong negotiator and very polite."
