Balcar, Polansky and Partners Advises on Two Leases for Microsoft

Czech Republic

Balcar, Polansky and Partners has advised Microsoft in the signing of lease agreements in Prague and Bratislava. The lessors — the PasserInvest Group in Prague and HB Reavis in Bratislava — did not use external counsel in the deals.

Commenting on the deal in Prague, Jana Vlkova, Head of Colliers International Czech Republic (the real estate agency that provided additional advice to Microsoft in that market) said: “Closing one of the largest office deals (11,500 sqm) in recent times highlights the depth of our Czech team in the local market. BB Centrum Delta is an excellent property where our client Microsoft is set to introduce its new workplace concept, 'Working from Anywhere,' which will be of great benefit to its business.”

The Balcar, Polansky and Partners team advising in Prague was led by Ludmila Neustupna, the Head of the Real Estate Practice. In Bratislava, the lawyer in charge was Helga Madarova. The firm was associated with Eversheds in Prague and Bratislava, operating under the name of Balcar Polansky Eversheds, until the English firm withdrew from the markets in January 2015.
