Former Noerr Co-Managing Partner Borivoj Libal has joined Eversheds Sutherland's Prague office together with a team of three lawyers.

According to Eversheds Sutherlands, Libal will take on the role of Co-Managing partner of the Prague office at Eversheds Sutherland and will work together with Bernhard Hager, who has been leading Eversheds Sutherland's Czech and Slovak practice since last year.

Libal specializes in corporate and M&A and joined Noerr’s Prague office as a Co-Head in 2019 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 6, 2019). Earlier still, he was a Managing Partner at PwC Legal Czech Republic between 2015 and 2018. Libal also worked at Havel, Holasek & Partners as a Counsel between 2011 and 2015. He was a Lawyer at CMS from 2009 to 2011, and at Norton Rose from 2006 to 2008.

"We use all opportunities for our development, and this applies to both clients and our colleagues," Eversheds Sutherland Managing Partner for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bernhard Hager commented. "Borivoj and I will gain rich experience from an international environment, and I personally look forward to new impulses and ideas."

"I am delighted that Borivoj and his team are joining Eversheds Sutherland," Eversheds Sutherland Europe Chairman Ian Gray added. "The expansion of the Prague branch is part of our overall plan for significant growth across continental Europe and follows on from our recent opening of new offices in Sofia, Bulgaria, and Frankfurt, Germany."
