In recognition of Glatzova & Co.’s high standards, it has received numerous awards from prestigious international and domestic rating agencies and has been repeatedly named the best law firm in the Czech Republic.
Glatzova & Co. is not a legal factory; quantity is never its goal. Rather, the firm’s lawyers continually strive for quality in all their work and always look for sophisticated solutions specifically tailored to each client and situation. The firm also does not produce reams of redundant documents merely copied and pasted from standard templates. Instead, everything it produces is efficiently focused on solving each client’s unique legal challenges.
Glatzova & Co. does not measure its success by numbers, but rather by the satisfaction of its clients, who come to the firm to resolve their most complicated issues, handle their most demanding transactions and bring their most critical disputes to satisfying conclusions.
With the firm’s in-depth knowledge of the law, its sensitive approach to clients’ business matters and its positive attitude to solving their legal challenges, its clients can always expect to get exactly what they need when they need it.
Glatzova & Co.’s strong work ethic is based on respect not only for its clients, but also for everyone on its team.
