Squire Sanders s.r.o.
As an adviser to established and emerging Slovak Republic-based and global companies on corporate matters ranging from private-sector development, investment and financing to labour and employment, our office is one of the strongest all-around legal practices in Bratislava.
Squire Sanders was the first US-based practice to establish a Bratislava office in 1991, and we have since been at the forefront of the development of a market economy in the Slovak Republic.
Our commitment to exceeding client expectations with cost-effective, high-quality solutions remains the backbone of our legal practice. With a strengthened value proposition built on our longstanding “one-firm firm” philosophy, we provide clients with access to the full resources of a top-20 global legal practice with offices throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
The nature and extent of our experience in Slovakia demonstrate our commitment to the region and confirm Squire Sanders’ position as one of the leading international law practices in Central Europe. We offer particular experience and familiarity with the legal infrastructure of Central and Eastern Europe, and increasingly in several states of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Our lawyers have a strong combination of international transactional experience and local know-how. Our Bratislava lawyers are fluent in multiple languages. One is qualified to practice both in Slovakia and in North America, one is admitted to the New York Bar and the England and Wales Bar, and one has received an LLM degree from McGill University. This gives us a critical understanding of both local and international business practices and offers our clients comprehensive expertise in the application of Western methods, legal concepts and technologies to help develop effective market economies in Central and Eastern Europe.
Several of our Bratislava lawyers are actively involved in furthering the business interests of Slovakia through participation in various associations, organizations and chambers. We have lawyers that are leaders in the American Chamber of Commerce, a managing partner on the AmCham Board of Directors, and a partner in the British Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors in Slovakia. Our team members are frequent lecturers and authors, participating in various forums and conferences. With leadership in the profession to match their advanced legal work, our lawyers make up one of the best-known teams of advisers in the Slovak Republic and the region at large.
