Prague-based Tomicek Legal has announced that it and Bratislava-based Fox Martens have founded the CEE Attorneys network, which aims to "provide superior legal services to its clients in the whole Central European region through a group of cooperating law firms.”

Tomicek Legal Managing Partner Zdenek Tomicek is unsurprisingly enthusiastic about the new network, which went active on March 1, 2015. “In most cases our major clients are companies operating in multiple jurisdictions within the Central European region,” Tomicek explains. "Therefore it is quite logical that we want to ensure for them the highest standard of legal services where they operate.” Accordingly, Zdenek plans to extend the network beyond the Czech Republic and Slovakia: "Our vision is to extend the network of CEE Attorneys not only to all countries of the Visegrad Group (Visegrad Four), but also to other Central European countries as well as the countries in which our clients operate. At present we are actively negotiating not only with several specific law firms in Germany and Poland, but also in Turkey.”

Tomicek explained to CEE Legal Matters that partnering with other firms was an important part of his plan when starting his own office in 2013. The former DLA Piper and PWC lawyer referred to the increasing number of Czech firms starting to to business outside the country as the basis for his efforts in founding the network, which he also hopes will also eventually include firms in Austria and Hungary. 

Michal Martinek, Partner at Fox Martens, shares his counterpart’s confidence.“We believe that through the network of CEE Attorneys we will be able to offer to clients the maximum added value in legal services while maintaining rates reflecting the price level in the region. Together with our colleagues from the Czech Republic and other candidate law firms in given jurisdictions, with which we are actively negotiating, we want to create a leading network of top legal advisers. Individual candidates to this network undergo a long screening process so that we can offer to our clients the best possible legal advice in all countries of the region.”
