Our main activity is representation of clients before courts at all levels and of all types, as well as representation during negotiations outside of court (before the commencement of proceedings), and we further specialise in representation related to industrial property at the Czech Industrial Property Office, the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the European Patent Office (EPO). Of course, we also prepare contracts and other supporting legal documents for clients.
The legal services that we provide to clients are based on thorough knowledge of valid law, court jurisprudence as well as economic and commercial aspects and additional experience, and when we provide our legal services we make use of this knowledge for comprehensive solutions corresponding to our client's interests. We attempt to eliminate protracted disputes before courts and administrative bodies, and therefore we first give our clients the opportunity to resolve disputes outside of court.
When providing our legal services, we cooperate closely with renowned tax advisers, auditors, authorised financial and insurance brokers, including internationally, where we cooperate with other law and patent firms. The services that we provide to clients also include notarial services, financial, tax and insurance advice, private debt collection services and the services of court experts as well as private detective services.
We are seated in Prague in the quite villa quarter in Podolí.
We primarily provide legal services in the area of private and IP law. More details about our services can be found in the section provided legal services.

We cannot guarantee success in business, but we are prepared to assist you with problems of a legal character.
We also provide legal services to citizens, municipalities, public administration bodies, associations and other parties involved in civil law relationships, personal data protection, family and employment law and administrative law. We are able to assist you with matters such as resolution of property relationships during the purchase, sale and management of real estate, with exercising your entitlements stemming from contracts or other circumstances, collecting compensation for damages and negotiations with administrative bodies.

We directly represent clients in proceedings before the Czech Industrial Property Office, the EU Intellectual Property Office (trademarks and designs) and the European Patent Office in Munich (patents). We also ensure the management and maintenance of our client's portfolios and their industrial property rights.
Fees for the provision of legal services are based on the contractual rate sheet, which is available for clients to view at the firm’s main office.

The hourly rate varies depending on the type of provided legal services.
