Legal market overview

Slovakia’s legal market demonstrated positive progression away from the Eurozone crisis, but the country’s economy is becoming increasingly affected by the Russia-Ukraine issues. There is however, considerable optimism for growth in the banking and finance sector and many public-private partnership projects are in the pipeline.

Foreign investors are gradually moving away from the Slovak market in the areas of corporate and real estate, which has prompted the emergence of local investors. The real estate market remains sluggish, but construction developments continue despite the cautious approach of lenders.

The rankings include a mix of domestic, regional and international firms. Allen & Overy Bratislava, s.r.o. and White & Case s.r.o are the leading international names, while Peterka & Partners and bnt attorneys-at-law, s.r.o. are particularly active across Central and Eastern Europe. Cechova & Partners and Barger Prekop s.r.o. are among the most prominent local firms. 2014 saw smaller local firms more frequently being instructed on high-profile mandates and attracting praise as having competitive fee structures.
