Legal market overview

Law firms in the Czech Republic report an active year across the spectrum of practice areas. The real estate market continues to thrive, with larger transactions becoming increasingly prevalent, particularly in the residential and retail sectors, and with increasing interest in industrial and logistics projects from Czech and Chinese investors. The increase in foreign direct investment means that M&A is flourishing, particularly in the manufacturing and IT sectors. Data protection and cybersecurity are increasingly to the fore in lawyers’ minds, with the General Data Protection Regulation coming into force in 2018.

The legal market consists of various high-profile local law firms and several international firms as well as a number of highly rated boutique practices. With the majority of practices reporting a busy year, there have been relatively few lateral moves in the market. However, of note was Dentons’ hire of new energy practice head Petr Zákoucký, who was previously at Clifford Chance.
