Legal market overview

Overall, the business environment in the Czech Republic is positive. Although headline M&A transactions are a rarity, there has been growth in the value and volume of deals undertaken, with real estate, IT and healthcare the busiest sectors; acquisition financing terms are very favourable with low interest rates. The market’s traditional investors, which retreated from the country following the financial crisis, have been slow to return, enabling Czech companies and private equity funds to capitalise. Indeed, there has been a notable trend of domestic players consolidating existing sector strengths.

With the surplus of bank financing available in the market, inevitably, it follows that this has been a lean period for capital markets deals. However, 2016 did produce a major IPO in the financial services sector – that of Moneta Money Bank, General Electric’s Czech banking business.

Major domestic firms include Kocián Solc Balastík, BBH, advokátni kancelár, S.R.O. and Weinhold Legal, while there are also several international players present in the country. There have been relatively few moves in the legal market, although one of note was the departure of a team from White & Case (Europe) LLP to join a newly established private equity fund.
