Former Vejmelka & Wunsch Partner Martin Peckl has joined Havel & Partners as a Partner in Prague.
Peckl is described by Havel & Partners as focusing on “mergers and acquisitions, real estate law, commercial law, and company law” and is joining a team that “provides comprehensive legal services to German-speaking clients.”
According to the firm, Peckl “provides legal advice in German, English, and Czech. These are services such as the implementation of strategic investments, the establishment and management of joint ventures, the supply of investment units, or project financing. He has participated in a number of acquisition transactions on the part of both buyers and sellers, including residential services, office buildings, energy, construction, development, engineering, and the automotive industry.”
Prior to joining Havel & Partners, Peckl has worked with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and, since 2002, with its successor Czech law firm Vejmelka & Wunsch, where he has been a Partner for the past 13 years.
“One of our strategic priorities is the development of services focused on important clients who are commercially connected with German-speaking countries,” said Managing Partner Jaroslav Havel. “In the so-called DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), the demand of Czech and Slovak companies for legal and tax support for expansion into these countries is growing rapidly.”
