Litigation & Arbitration

Litigation & Arbitration

Legal environment in the Czech Republic is fairly stable and courts render independent decisions. Nonetheless, the legal history and court adjudicated precedents do not have a long history. In addition, the Czech laws are changed frequently which makes the legal system often confusing. On top of this, many industries are also unnecessarily overregulated by the state. This creates a necessity for a client with a dispute in the Czech Republic, either in a commercial field or in litigation with the state, to engage a good and experienced litigator.

Czech Administrative Litigation

As mentioned above, many industries in the Czech Republic are highly regulated and administrative procedures and permits may take extremely long, and/or are denied. We are highly recognized litigators in the field of administrative appeals, ranging from tax appeals, through construction permit appeals, to appeals connected to denial of stay in the Czech Republic. A specialized litigator is extremely necessary in these cases, as the appeal deadlines are very short and the decision making practice of the relevant state body must be taken into account when filing the appeal (administrative bodies in the Czech Republic are often no so well versed in the law as the courts are, and therefore a good litigator can often help you to win the appeal).

 

The following are our fields of expertise:
• Administrative appeals in real estate development matters
