After more than two decades of providing clients in Slovakia with legal advice through associations with local law firms, from 1 June international law firm CMS will provide Slovak law advice through its fully-integrated Slovak team.
The local CMS team, which is co-headed by Peter Šimo and Petra Čorba Stark consists of 10 experienced lawyers who cover all the main areas of business law.
About the new office Petra Čorba Stark comments: “The responses to our announcement that we received from our clients have been overwhelmingly positive and the team has hit the ground running in terms of client instructions. We believe there is a place for a firm like ours in the current market and are ready to further develop our business locally.”
Peter Šimo adds: “Our many years spent providing legal advice in Slovakia mean our clients can rely on our extensive local knowledge and experience. But what is unique about us is that, thanks to our 4,500 CMS colleagues worldwide, we can also support our clients with the legal expertise of the biggest law firm in Europe. This is a competitive advantage that not many law firms on the Slovak market can offer to their clients.”
CMS Bratislava is a full service law firm with particular strengths in the Automotive, Compliance, Energy, Financial Services, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Projects & Infrastructure, Employment, Real Estate, and Technology, Media and Telecommunications sectors.
