KŠB in 2018 Chambers Europe21/03/18 / News
Renowned British ratings agency Chambers and Partners recommends KŠB and its lawyers in nine fields in the latest edition of the Chambers Europe 2018 guide.
In Banking and Capital Markets, KŠB is referred to as a respected firm and includes a client’s evaluation of KŠB partner Martin Krejčí: "He has a quick insight into complex situations, is very strong in negotiations, keeping in mind the detail but always remaining focused on the client's aim and finding the best solutions for the client."
In Competition/Antitrust, the publication emphasizes KŠB’s role as one of the leading firms in the Czech Republic and recommends KŠB partner Pavel Dejl as a leading expert: “A "well-known name" in competition law, Pavel Dejl is a "true market leader" who is "really good.”
In Corporate/M&A, Chamber Europe 2018 lists some of the most important transactions which KŠB has advised on and lists KŠB partner Martin Šolc ("He does well at explaining legal issues from a business point of view, and when negotiations get difficult he finds common ground." ) and KŠB managing partner Dagmar Dubecká ("She is very business-oriented, and provides quick, efficient solutions.") as notable practitioners.
In Litigation, Pavel Dejl is referred to as “one of the best litigators in the Czech Republic.”
Other categories where KŠB received praise include: Projects/Energy, with two notable practitioners: KŠB partner Václav Rovenský (“A client highlights his "knowledge of the business law" and "dutifulness" as particular strengths.”) and – for the first time – KŠB counsel Tomáš Sequens (“What impressed me is the power of Mr Sequens to give us support and 100% quality in a very short space of time." Clients further appreciate Tomáš’s "proactive thinking" and ability to find “good solutions.”); Restructuring/Insolvency, with KŠB managing partner Dagmar Dubecká; andTelecommunications, with KŠB partner Martin Šolc (“Clients are "very satisfied" with the team, who are "very flexible in terms of last-minute changes.")
The 2018 Chambers Europe guide also lists KŠB in Band 1 in the Tax category: “Clients report "absolute satisfaction" with the firm, saying: "When I get advice it is always well founded with strong rational support that I'm able to comprehend and feel confident in. They have very good knowledge of surrounding jurisdictions too, and when it comes to more distant jurisdictions they can always refer me to someone of quality.” KŠB tax partner Helena Navrátilová is referred to as a key expert, with a client singling out “her "comprehensible" communication style, appreciating that she "bridges the gap between legal and tax advice" and "finds a way that works."
