Clifford Chance has become a new long-term partner of Nadace Dagmar a Václava Havlových VIZE 97. The foundation was established by Dagmar and Václav Havel in 1997 and supports various charitable projects primarily in the field of healthcare and culture. Clifford Chance has been advising the foundation on a pro bono basis in relation to multiple matters mainly aiming to protect its intellectual property, while also representing the organization in enforcing intellectual property rights as a result of their violation by third parties.
In the spirit of its name, the foundation’s endeavours and objectives are geared to the future, while not neglecting certain burning issues of the present. The foundation has, for example, helped people and organisations affected by two successive waves of floods, spreads enlightenment about colorectal cancer or provides scholarships for talented music students.
Clifford Chance team advising the foundation consists of Partner Emil Holub and Junior Lawyers Ondřej Dolenský and Martin Urban.
