Ludek Chvosta has left White & Case to join Noerr as Head of Banking & Finance in Prague.
Chvosta focuses on banking and finance work (including regulatory aspects), capital markets (with an emphasis on DCM) and insolvency law. According to Noerr, "being a licensed attorney in New York, the Czech Republic, and Washington DC, as well as licensed Solicitor in England & Wales, Ludek is well placed to offer unique multi-jurisdictional insight into key financing issues and their business impact. Furthermore, he has advised on many of the top Czech capital markets deals of the past decade and has represented creditors in some of the most well-known insolvency proceedings in the Czech Republic."
Chvosta was at White & Case since February 2010. He received his Master's Degree (2008), Juris Doctorate (2009), and Ph.D. (2016) from Charles University in Prague, and another J.D. (2010) from the Nova Southeastern University in Florida.
Barbara Kusak, Prague Office Managing Partner, explained that, "we are excited to have Ludek with us and I am convinced he will create real value for our Prague office and for the whole firm bringing to bear breadth and depth of experience in banking and finance law.”
Andreas Naujoks, International Head of Noerr’s Banking & Finance practice, added that, “the joining of Ludek Chvosta is part of our strategic process of building a premium quality Banking and Finance capability in Central Eastern Europe.”
Joerg Menzer, CEE Regional Managing Partner, added, “Ludek has excellent credentials having worked for White & Case for almost a decade, and we are delighted to have another out-standing professional on board to help and contribute to our regional business development, as well. Following the expanding of our Warsaw office last year, and the joining of Edina Schweizer in Budapest (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on August 21, 2017), we are sending a strong message to the market by Ludek that we are 'in the game' for banking and finance law."
