We are a team of responsive lawyers who understand that every problem has multiple solutions and are unafraid to search for the best one for you.
We specialise ourselves in Software and IT law, start-ups, the protection of personal data and investments. We can provide help to E-Shops, developers, HR Officers, new enterpreneurs and even seasoned managers. Especially in the areas mentioned below.
Software/IT law is our core legal discipline. No matter if you are creating or commissioning software. We can help you with development contracts, the *aaS solution or end-user license terms. We cooperate with a broad range of clients, from nuclear power ↗ plants or telecommunications authorities ↗ to small development studios. We also provide courses on IT contracts. If that interests you, you can read a handbook ↗ we have written about them.
We live and breathe IT law. And we understand your language. Entrust your know-how, business, and data into the care of IT law professionals. Please contact us ↗ and we will tell you all you want to know.
Do you run a mobile or web app and do you need to handle subscriptions and auto-renewals? Or perhaps, do you need help with the level of accessibility of the app and responsibility for user content?
Agile or waterfall? Hybrid teams or body shopping? Framework or simple contract? All of this will be clear if you work with us! Your contract will be comprehensible and bulletproof.
It is important to set the rules for (dis)permitted uses of your copyright work, while taking into consideration the used open source, standard components and third-party services.
You are creating a partner network to launch a product in a new market. But how should you handle the relationship with your partners? Is a direct relationship with the customer desirable or do you prefer a mediated one? And how can you set selling prices?
Incidents, response times and requests. How to set rules around them and how to solve the consequences of non-compliance is a critical issue for long-term software support.
SLAs (service level agreement) should be in place for anyone who deals with SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and other *aaS solutions. And that is even when the service is handled by a third-party subcontractor.
An independent and objective view and identification of potential IT risks. Whether you need us to perform a DD or you perform audit by yourselves, thanks to our individual approach you will not miss a thing.
You faced the problem of poaching of employees and contractors by third parties for the first time. And next time, you want to be prepared. We have dealt with a no-poaching agreement before, and we know how to implement it into your business in a fair and transparent way.
No one wants their cooperation to look like the definition of the well-known “Švarc system” (hidden employment). It is important to handle the relationship between developer and supplier correctly. Together we shall set the rules so that you never fall into a situation like that.

When you say personal data protection, many people feel a chill run down their spine. Then again, right privacy set up can also be fun. We are glad to provide you necessary documentation. We also offer courses for you or your employees or you can use the e-learning tools provided by us. Last but not least, we can arrange the services of a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
If you have a website/application and you need to check that you have everything set up correctly, check out our checklist ↗.
A document which informs other people how you process their data, what entitles you to do it, or to whom are the personal data transferred.
Setting up the relationship between the personal data controller and the personal data processor in accordance with the requirements of Article 28 GDPR.
Do you need consent for processing? We will prepare the wording for you and give you guidelines on how to use it.
We will help you set up a camera security system in your company. We will prepare the necessary documentation and assess all risks.
We provide an analysis of cookies documentation on your website and editing of the wording, a consultation by us on the correct settings included.
Assessment of the setup of GDPR documentation and processes of the personal data controller or processor, including proper implementation.
We will provide you with DPO services and we will assist you with GDPR compliance.
Preparing internal regulations and setting up processes in relation to the protection of personal data.
Data protection is a broad topic. Dealing with marketing, unsolicited phone calls, commercial communications or simply needing advice? We are here for you.
Being an employer is not easy. A poorly written employment contract can cost you the rights to your employee’s work. A missing work schedule or undocumented security workshops can cause fines by the Employment Inspectorate. And a mishandled employment termination can cost vast amounts of money in the form of unpaid wages of the wrongfully terminated employee.
We can guide you through all the difficulties of employment law and help you avoid the above-mentioned situations.
Do you need help with employment agreement, work agreement (dohoda o provedení práce) or agreement on work performance (dohoda o pracovní činnosti)? Together we will plan out what your employees position and workload should be. We will also set up the proper documentation between you and the employees.
Employment agreement --> DPP/DPČ -->
Given the lack of employees in the labour market, there may be a need to use external workforce. We will prepare or revise the necessary documentation, no matter who you contract.
Working from home is becoming increasingly popular, but employers should not forget to set rules for it properly. The Labour Code makes little distinction between working in an office or at home. This should be reflected accordingly in said rules.
Generally, employees should be improving on their skills. However, if you are going to invest in expensive employee training, a qualification agreement could be useful. This sets out the terms and conditions of claiming the costs of the employee's skill development and in return the employee will remain employed for a set period of time (but no longer than 5 years).
Collaboration with a self-employed person sounds like a great thing until the Labor Inspection Office comes along with a fine for illegal employment. To avoid this risk, we can help you set up the cooperation with your contractors in such a way that it really corresponds to a relationship between two independent entrepreneurs and therefore does not bear the characteristics of dependent work.
A poorly reasoned or incorrectly delivered notice of termination of employment is invalid. And the associated costs can be really high (e.g., lost earnings, court costs). To avoid these risks, we'll assess your situation and recommend the safest way to terminate the employee.
You should make necessary preparations in case you encounter these issues. You wouldn't be the first to not know what non-compete and no-poaching agreements are and how to put them into practice in a fair and transparent way
We enjoy being in the world of new technologies, so we look for opportunities to help startups! Corporate law issues cut across the entirety of starting and managing a business. A startup entrepreneur must deal with them from the beginning, throughout the “life” of the company until its end. Protecting ideas and investments early in the life of any startup, along with a global go-to-market and marketing strategy, are absolutely crucial. Whether you need to make sure you’re complying with all legal requirements, or just need some relief from administrative hassles, we’re here for you!
We will discuss your business plans with you and advise you on the most suitable form of business in relation to the subject of the business, the current state of the business and your future business plans. We can help you set up a limited company/shareholding company, draft a memorandum of association and deal with all the administrative steps.
If you’ve ever been self-employed, you may find that this type of business tends to start to feel small. We know the best way to turn a running business into a company. We’ll discuss the options with you, work with you and your tax and accounting advisors to choose one of the options and prepare all the administration.
The richer the startups are in ideas, the poorer they tend to be (at least at the beginning) financially. This is one of the reasons why it is slowly becoming the norm to offer employees and other collaborators their share of the company. We can advise you on how to set up and implement Employee programmes correctly, as well as how to specify terms and conditions.
For more complex ownership structures, it may be useful to regulate the relations between the partners by a separate (non-public) side agreement. We will draft and discuss the wording with you so that you are prepared for anything. Together we will always find the ideal solution.
Are you no longer satisfied with a limited company, and would like to switch to a public limited company? Or do you need to change the company structure? We will guide you through the transformation of your company and prepare all the necessary documentation for you.
Do you want to protect yourself against potential risks? As a part of our tax analyses of markets, we set up suitable corporate and holding structures, both domestically and abroad, in cooperation with partner law firms.
There are a lot of obligations connected with the activity of a commercial company (whether s.r.o. or a.s.) or the position of managing director - bookkeeping, general meetings, financial statements, if necessary, an extraordinary general meeting, etc. We can help you with all these matters and more.
We will prepare mandatory and voluntary internal regulations and processes covering the topics of whistleblower protection (whistleblowing ↗), registry entries (commercial, trade, beneficial owner registry), internal codes of ethics, to specific issues (ISO, financial services licensing, AML, ESG) and more.
Everything must come to an end. If the "life" of your legal entity has come to an end, we will help you to liquidate it as easily as possible, i. e. to dissolve it and delete it from the Commercial Register.
There are things that are more important than the profits from a successful business. That's why we also provide comprehensive services to non-profit organizations and help everyone who makes our world a better place.
Even a lawyer doesn't know everything. But that's why we have great partners. Our partner accounting firm ↗ is here to help you with your accounting and taxes.
We can help you protect your brand, know-how and creative outputs. Whether you direct and shoot videos, create graphic designs, write advertising texts, take photographs, prepare marketing analyses and strategies or simply build lovebrand. We have experience not only in preparing licensing agreements and registering trademarks in various countries around the world, but also in dealing with intellectual property infringement cases. In cooperation with our partners, we can also secure patents and utility models for your unique technology.
We will advise you on how to ideally protect your brand and in what form it is appropriate to register and use it. We will look at whether your trademark is available in your chosen market and then guide you through the whole process of registration and subsequent support in using your trademark.
Have you heard of trademark watching? We can control whether someone wants to register a similar trademark. And if they do, we will help you block the registration by opposing it or provide you with other services.
If you want to establish a company, our colleague Michaela ↗ will help you with it. When selecting a company name, we recommend checking whether the business name is available and does not infringe on the rights of another person (e.g., his/her trade name, trademark or unregistered name).
We also deal with domain name disputes - if someone registers your trademark or unregistered mark as a domain name, we will check whether they have the right to do so and suggest how to proceed.
We will investigate whether someone has infringed your intellectual property rights, whether you are the author, owner of a trademark, design, trade name or other right. If, on the other hand, you are on the other side and someone claims infringement of their rights, we will determine whether infringement has actually occurred and recommend the best strategy.
We will prepare employee contract documentation and contracts with developers and other team members, ensuring maximum rights to the outputs.
Since the establishment of our law firm, we have helped our clients with real estate transfers worth more than CZK 3.5 billion. We will ensure that your transaction goes smoothly. We will guide you safely through the entire process, preparing the deal for you down to the last detail, according to the individual needs of your case. We will prepare the necessary documentation for you, carry out official verification of signatures, arrange the escrow of the purchase price, prepare a proposal for the entry into the register and we will represent you in the entire procedure before the land registry office.
We provide legal services for real estate agents for the entire duration of the transaction. We understand that the main goal is a satisfied customer. We ensure that contracts are signed at the estate agent's office or at our office, including representation in the land registry proceedings, so that the estate agent's clients have as few worries as possible and can enjoy a successful transaction.
We are aware that any property disposal is a big step for both sellers and buyers. That's why we want to make the whole process as easy as possible for them, so that everything goes as they wish and without any hassles. Therefore, we always prepare a tailor-made contract for our clients, in which we reflect their requirements.
We carry out complex review of the contractual documentation and analyse all risks and their possible consequences if they are not addressed. At the same time, we approach the revisions sensitively and assess the client's level of accetable risk so as to not discourage them from buying or selling.
Recently, the demand for rental housing has increased again. In this area we provide comprehensive services for both landlords and tenants. We also help clients if any problems arise during the lease. If the problems persist after the end of the lease, e. g., the tenant does not want to move out, we also represent clients in court proceedings.
The sale of real estate, but not only that, is often associated with easements and mortgages. In such cases, we will prepare all the documentation necessary for our clients in terms of the proceedings before the land registry until the end of the proceedings, i. e. until the registration or removal of the right in question.
Communication with the authorities is not something many people seek out. Procedures are often very formalised, and even the slightest error in documentation for the authorities can have far-reaching consequences. We are prepared to represent clients in proceedings to ensure that everything runs smoothly and as quickly as possible. However, we are also able to help if things are not running smoothly and will always advise the client on the best course of action.
We guide our clients through the entire process, both if the co-owners are able to reach an agreement and if an agreement is not possible and the matter needs to be resolved in court. If the co-owners agree, we will prepare the agreement and the necessary related documentation in order to make the entry in the land registry possible.
Investing in business should be a joyous occasion. However, it is almost always a challenging and exhausting situation. Whether you are an investor, VC or the owner of the target company, we are ready to provide you with comprehensive legal support to make everything as easy as possible.
The entry of an investor is a major milestone and success in the company's journey. We will help you set up the transaction mechanism and contractual documentation to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
Whether you are an investor, VC or a company preparing for an investment, do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you with a DD to check how prepared the company is for the investment.
A solution that can help many start-ups to get started and at the same time doesn't have to be so time-consuming. We will prepare a contract that sets up a loan from an investor with an alternative acquisition of shares.
The investment may involve other legal issues and challenges that we have not mentioned here. Do not hesitate to contact us and together we will work everything out. We have extensive experience with investments.
Do you need to set up security measures in consideration to using *aaS solutions, do you wish to become a Cloud Computing provider listed in Public Administration or are you considering setting up your cybersecurity, but don't even know where to start? Cybersecurity is our expertise and we can help you both learn and use it.
We will lead you through the process of listing your organisation into the Public Administration list of Cloud Computing providers, a database set up by the Ministry of the Interior of Czech Republic with the intent of streamlining the operation of Public Authorities. Besides arranging the individual steps needed for your listing, we will help you fulfill the requirements required of you to be a Cloud Computing provider.
Is it unknown to you what cybersecurity requirements apply to your organisation? Are you unsure if you are an obliged person bound by the Act on Cyber Security or if you will be impacted by its requirements after the incorporation of the European Directive NIS 2? We will perform an audit and identify all the requirements and obligations.
The most common requirement according to the rules of cybersecurity is providing the relevant documentation. We will provide a basic form of safety documentation, which will help you correctly set up security processes and log that you followed safety protocols.
Medical law is about the intersection of many disciplines, not only law and medicine, but also ethics or technology. Whether you provide outpatient, same-day or inpatient care, you need to have the right permits, well-set up contracts and other documentation. We're here to help you turn health care regulations into a competitive advantage. We have experience in non-material damages litigation, and we can set up the right relationships with patients, relationships between health care providers, or relationships with insurance companies. Whether you run a private medical practice or a hospital, our Medical law team has the experience needed to help.
Are you setting up a dental practice, starting a GP service or looking to open a specialized practice? Do you know what you need to set up but are getting lost in the amount of paperwork? Or do you want to buy an existing practice from someone and are at a loss as to where to start? Our Medical law team has handled many transfers, purchases and establishment of practices and can ensure a smooth process from the very start to a successful finish for you.
Have you decided to hand over your practice to a new generation? Or are you looking for someone to help you set up the ideal conditions for renting your practice while you devote your time to your family? Whatever the medical facility, we know how to properly maintain its continued operation. In fact, we know very well that building a functioning practice is no easy feat, and we're happy to help you hand over everything so that your facility continues to function in the hands of new doctors.
Medical documentation is an integral and very important part of any medical facility. The content is regulated by the Decree on medical documentation, which also regulates the scope of keeping such documentation, its requirements, and rules. Whether you are a general practitioner, a dentist, a plastic surgeon or have any other specialty, you must keep medical documentation correctly, as it is a key area of your practice.
No doctor wants to be in this situation. However, it is a common occurrence in the operation of a medical practice. Do you know what to do if there is a complaint or even a lawsuit? We have years of experience with litigations in the healthcare sector, both domestic and cross-border.
Having practiced Medical law for many years, we are familiar with the issues that accompany the operation of a medical facility, have hands-on experience with what answers managers need and what areas employees need to know.
We will train the responsible staff in professional issues such as the legal conception of emergencies or broader lege artis procedures, but also in operational matters such as employment law, proper maintenance of medical records, how to handle patient data, proper communication with patients and new developments in the healthcare sector. We will prepare a tailor-made training or lecture for you.

Via email, phone, or any other arbitrary tool, we will arrange a meeting. The meeting can be online/in person where we will clarify all your needs and preferences.
After the meeting, we will send you additional questions and explain everything so that you understand the questions. You don't have to worry about us speaking to you in the language of Mordor, or any other incomprehensible language (or even the legal one). We make it a priority that you or your employees know exactly what issues are being addressed and, more importantly, why they are being addressed.
For now, don't you know what all you need to deal with? Maybe you will find the answer on our blog ↗.
Once we have all the information from you, we think about an issues that might arise in your business. But we go further. We don't just stop at the wording of the paragraphs. We think about the implications for your business, look for risks that we can point out to you and evaluate it together.
