About Us

Law firm ČERNEJOVÁ & HRBEK has been providing legal services for its clients since 1992, whereby it ranges among the oldest original Slovak law firms. We do not base only upon our tradition, we continue in the daily pursuit of constant professional development and education as well as of the best use of our experience for the benefit of our clients. We often operate as a Slovak legal counsel of international law firms within cross-border transactions; however we provide also services directly to foreign and Slovak clients. We have advised in major projects, including the most significant transactions during the last two decades in Slovakia.

We are pleased that we have received for our work not only the recognition of the professional community and our colleagues, but also the confidence of many clients which is proved by the fact that they have been enjoying our services continuously for many years now. We owe to the clients’ evaluation of our work that we regularly rank on the top positions of Slovakia-based law firms reviews which are prepared by specialized agencies just on the basis of clients’ evaluation. For instance, the publications Chambers Global and Chambers Europe regularly rank our firm among the leading Slovak firms in the field of Business Law, Competition Law and Real Estate Law. For many years we have been evaluated within this publication as ”top ranked“ firm in Slovakia in the field of Disputes Solution. The world-wide publication World Trademark Revue has repeatedly ranked our firm among the “highly recommended” law firms in Slovakia in the field of IP and Trade Mark Law. In 2013 for the first time in the Slovak Republic the law firms have been evaluated within the project the Law Firm of the Year and our law firm has been successful in four categories. In categories Corporate Law and Dispute Resolution we scored as highly recommended law firm and in categories Public Procurement and Mergers & Acquisitions as recommended law firm. Since then, our law firm is ranked every year in selected areas as a highly recommended, eventually recommended law firm.

We trust in expertise and experience and we consider our team to be one of the most experienced among Slovak law firms at all. Knowledge obtained in leading of important transactions of Slovak and international dimension and representation of clients within cardinal court disputes allows us to provide clients with practical and useful counselling. Admittedly, there are also young lawyers working in our team, either as junior lawyers or later as cooperating associated attorneys. However, particular teams are always led by partners who intensively supervise their work. Thereby the professional control and guaranteed quality for every type of layout is secured.

The work for each client is always treated personally and individually, whether it encompasses routine business cases or complex transactions. We cooperate with professionals in the field of tax counselling and with foreign law firms in order to cover the interests of our clients even in case of interference to other profession sectors or jurisdictions.

Our law firm operated originally as a partnership of attorneys. In 2008 it was transformed into a limited liability company providing legal services under the name ČERNEJOVÁ & HRBEK, s.r.o.
