In “The Buzz” we interview experts on the legal industry living and working in Central and Eastern Europe to find out what’s happening in the region and what legislative/professional/cultural trends and developments they’re following closely. Because the interviews are carried out and published on the CEE Legal Matters website on a rolling basis, we’ve marked the dates on which the interviews were originally published.

The following is an account of a series of events that actually befell one of my firm’s foreign clients in the Czech Republic.

The Buzz is a short summary of the major and relevant topics of interest in Central and Eastern Europe, provided by those best positioned to know: law firm partners and legal journalists/commentators on the ground in each CEE country.

The Czech Republic’s Hruby & Buchvaldek law firm has been engaged by Sebre — a Czech real estate development company — to advise it during the preparation of its new Medport project in Holesovice, a developing area of Prague. According to Hruby & Buchvaldek, Medport will be a multi-purpose building "featuring the innovative and modern architectural design of the renowned studio led by Stanislav Fiala."
