Effective solutions are based on individual approach focused on the client´s needs – that is how we work in CLS Cavojsky & Partners.

Individual treatment is one of the key issues that can characterize our legal services. This contains not only how we treat our clients but also understanding of specifics of the industry in which they operate.

We believe in the long-term relationships – and we are proud that the majority of our clients stay with us for many years. We provide legal advice for not only national but also multinational corporations operating in Slovakia or whose business interests are in Slovakia.

We operate in many cases as a key contact point and integrator for the full scale of advisory services that our clients require and therefore we can contribute to make the business life of our clients easier.

We are innovative and that does not mean only when speaking about modern technologies. Innovation in our view means looking for effective solutions, trying to look at the issues from the global perspective and making it as simple as possible, following the modern trends.
