Year of Founding1991
I am pleased to help our clients and be an imaginary crutch to achieve their goals.
There is no room for unclear conclusions in litigation. There is always a need to take a clear stance.
Everyday cooperation with leaders in the legal field I find truly rewarding.
Dentons' Prague office is part of the world's largest law firm. Dentons has been present in the Czech Republic through its legacy firms since 1991 and has always taken pride in providing clients with high-quality legal services. A team of more than 65 lawyers advises clients on a wide-range of matters, such as acquisitions, banking and financing, large-scale restructurings, real estate transactions or in complex legal disputes. A number of recent accolades are testament to their success. In the competition “EPRAVO.CZ Law Firm of the Year 2019” Dentons won the main award as “International Law Firm of the Year” on the Czech market. The team also scored highly in professional categories and collected the award for the “Law Firm of the Year for Banking and Finance”.
Dentons currently operates in over 180 locations in more than 70 countries. The seat of Dentons' Prague office is located in the iconic building complex, Palác Špork. The office premises, which sensitively combine modern architecture with original features, provide a workplace for more than 210 lawyers and other professionals. The building boasts a rooftop terrace with green spaces and a relaxation area, which is used not only for barbecues and yoga lessons, but also for open-air movie screenings.
Law is a dynamic field, and each case brings new insights. Therefore, the individual teams meet regularly to share news from the field of law, discuss interesting transactions, as well as their current caseload.
Dentons European network holds an annual Dentons Football and Volleyball Cup, a competition between individual European offices. Each team prepares for this event throughout the year, with team members regularly meeting for practice sessions after work. The highlight of the season is the tournament final, which always takes place in a different country. This is a great opportunity to get to know colleagues from other offices, realize one’s own potential and, of course, to win a medal! The Prague office can boast having the second best football team and third best volleyball team from the 2019 Dentons Football and Volleyball Cup.
Every Dentons lawyer spends at least 40 hours a year on pro bono work, and is entirely free to choose which project to dedicate this time to. Education, social services, human rights... each lawyer can focus on a cause, which is of particular interest. For instance, the Prague office cooperates with the Educhange Foundation co-founded by the Avast Foundation, the Česká spořitelna Foundation, the Karel Janeček Foundation and the Open Society Fund Prague aiming to improve the Czech education system.
