bnt attorneys in CEE again ranked among most most successful law firms in Czechia

The law firm bnt attorneys in CEE is among the best in the Czech Republic, according to international agency Legal500. In their latest rating, bnt attorneys in CEE made it into top tier in no fewer than four areas of law: Corporate and M&A, Dispute Resolution, Real Estate, and Tax. According to Legal500, this excellent result is owed primarily to the firm’s international coverage and the high level of legal expertise in a number of jurisdictions within the EU.

“The recognition by Legal500 means a lot to us – especially since they are an international agency and as such able to form an unbiased view of the local environment,” commented Tomáš Běhounek, partner at bnt attorneys in CEE, on the results. “Above all, the fact that we’re ranked among the best firms in as many as four diverse areas of specialization gives our clients reassurance that they can firmly rely on receiving only top-notch service from us,” added Tomáš Běhounek.

Corporate and M&A are overseen by Peter Maysenhölder. “I know of no other law firm which covers both Czech and German jurisdictions as competently as bnt. For us, this makes business so much easier: In both countries, we can rely on a single partner from whom we receive cross-border services on a consistently high level and on consistent terms. This one-stop shop moreover saves us a good deal of money, seeing as we get complete geographic coverage from just one firm,” to quote the credentials in Legal500’s rating report.

Peter Maysenhölder also leads the Dispute Resolution team. One referee had this to say for Legal500: “Thanks to bnt’s lawyers being licensed to practice on the international level and being embedded in a strong CEE network, it becomes possible to respond to unfolding situations with unprecedented speed without compromising on solid knowledge of the local law. If you, like I, have a stake in more than one market within the region, bnt is the right choice for you: You’ll get consistently excellent legal counsel in a variety of countries, on unchanging terms.”

In addition, clients highlight the personal profile of Peter Maysenhölder in particular. To quote: “I work almost exclusively with Peter Maysenhölder because he is perfectly at home in both German and Czech law; a German native speaker, he is business fluent also in Czech. This makes it so much easier for me to resolve cross-border issues: thanks to Peter, I’ve got both countries covered.”

The firm’s experience in Real Estate, a practice area led by Tomáš Běhounek, is reflected by Legal500 as follows: “The team of bnt is extremely stable, which makes it possible to forge a lasting relationship. Their market intelligence and their knowledge of individual transactions are excellent. Individual team members are highly efficient and know how to assist also on the commercial aspects of individual deals. The team is ready at all times to give advice, structure transactions, and answer the needs and goals of its clients.”

Again, clients are recognizing individual talent within the team, having particular words of praise for Tomáš Běhounek and Jiří Havlík: “Tomáš Běhounek is a seasoned professional who always puts the client front and center. Jiří Havlík is quick in turning around drafts and always fulfills all tasks with a view to the time constraints.”

The Tax practice is in the experienced hands of Lenka Zachardová, who has been praised by Legal500 for “taking an individual approach to each and every client. The team has a clear focus on the German market and works for a number of German multinationals. It also knows how to handle tax audits, and will act as the client’s front vis-a-vis the Czech finance authorities.”
