CMS has strengthened its Prague office with the recruitment of three new lawyers into the real estate team. Libor Prokeš (counsel), Pavel Srb (senior associate) and Ivana Lobotková (associate) are joining the firm's real estate practice.
Libor Prokeš and Pavel Srb have a broad practice with a strong focus on real estate transactional work, including sales and acquisitions and financings, and leasing and constructions matters. All three lawyers are joining CMS from Wolf Theiss.
“From the appointments of Libor, Pavel and Ivana, compounded with the continuous growth and development of our own lawyers internally, CMS now has one of the most robust real estate teams on the market,” comments partner and head of the Prague real estate practice, Lukáš Hejduk. “Having acted opposite Libor and Pavel in numerous real estate transactions, we were particularly impressed at how well they understand the property business and the drive they have to get the deal done. We share the same commercial approach to transactions and believe they will make a perfect fit with our team.”
“We are very excited about joining CMS. Our combined experience and strength will enable us to act on the largest and most complex transactions on the market,” adds Libor Prokeš.
The latest figures show that the property sector remains buoyant and that the number of transactions and the investment volumes in the region are still on the rise. “We are very positive about future opportunities in the region and expect our established position as a market leading advisor in CEE to be further entrenched with the merger with real estate powerhouse Nabarro as well as a new office opening in Bratislava,” Hejduk concludes.
