The Prague office of the international law firm White & Case is expanding its team with the addition of Vladimír Ivančo, who will be heading the Slovak Desk as of 1st March 2023.
Vladimír specializes in litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and real estate. He has provided legal advisory services in a large number of real estate transactions, across a broad range of clients and transaction structures including real estate funds as well as international and local developers in connection with large multi-purpose development projects in Slovakia. He rejoins the team of White & Case in the position of counsel following a stint at Aldertree legal s.r.o., having previously worked for 16 years at White & Case.
“The arrival of Vladimír Ivančo is yet another sign of our long-term focus on further growth in the CEE region. Vlado is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer and seasoned professional who has earned himself a stellar reputation in the legal community and commands the respect of his peers. We believe he is the perfect addition to our successful team,” says Vít Stehlík, executive partner of the Prague office.
Vladimír had this to say about his new role: “Returning to the top international law firm in the region as head of the Slovak Desk is a new challenge for me – one that I am very much looking forward to.
