Former Counsel Martin Raz and Managing Associate Dalibor Kovar have been promoted to Partner at Havel & Partners, as of July 1, 2022.

Specializing in the real estate and construction, litigation, public sector, and regulatory areas, Raz has been with the firm since 2013, having first joined Havel Holasek & Partners as a Senior Associate. He was promoted to Senior Attorney in 2015 and then to Managing Associate and Counsel in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Before joining his current team, Raz spent over ten years at Weil Gotshal & Manges, as a Junior Associate from 2004 to 2007 and, later, as a Senior Associate from 2007 to 2013.

Kovar specializes in electronic legal acts, digital transformation in law, IP law, IT, e-commerce, law-making, and contract law. He joined the firm in 2013 as an Associate and was later promoted to Senior Associate in 2017 and Managing Associate in 2020. Earlier, Kovar was an Associate with PRK Partners, from 2011 to 2013, and with Gide Loyrette Nouel in 2010. He also worked as a Paralegal – for his current firm from 2007 to 2008 – and for Vyskocil Kroslak & Spol, from 2005 to 2006.

"Only excellent lawyers can keep a leading law firm at the top," Havel & Partners Managing Partner Jaroslav Havel commented. "That is why we, at Havel & Partners, develop our motivation system with a clear vision of career growth, which is often much faster than that of our competitors. Martin Raz and Dalibor Kovar, who are expanding the law firm’s management, are significant pillars of our legal teams and their benefit to Havel & Partners has been crucial for a long time."
