Former PWC Legal Prague Managing Partner Borivoj Libal has joined Noerr, bringing a team of four other lawyers with him.
After joining PWC Legal in 2015, Libal and his team left that firm at the end of last year. He joins Noerr as Associated Partner and new Co-Head of the Prague office -- a title he shares with former sole MP Barbara Kusak, who will, the firm reports, "concentrate more on expanding the firm’s transaction advisory practice in CEE in her role as Head of Corporate/M&A CEE.
Former PWC Legal Senior Associates Petr Kobylka and Michal Jekielek and Associates Ondrej Riticka and Marek Poloni join Noerr with Libal. According to Noerr, "the team has worked together for many years as a multidisciplinary integrated team and has been advising both domestic and international companies on transactions, as well as on their on-going activities in the Czech market. The team has proved its strengths in a range of other legal areas including Real Estate, IT, Data Protection, and regulatory advisory work.:
"Borivoj Libal and his team will strengthen Noerr’s service offering for both our national and international clients in the Czech Republic and will significantly reinforce our local presence,” says Jorg Menzer, Regional Managing Partner of the Noerr offices in Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Prague and Warsaw.
Barbara Kusak commented: “Making this move is a clear demonstration of our commitment to our Prague office and evidence of Noerr being a regional force in CEE.”
