Zdenek Mikulas, Petra Hajkova, and Jiri Cerny have left Samak to establish the Talers advisory group in the Czech Republic.

Talers will focus on providing legal, tax, accounting, and economic consulting services in the areas of M&A, generational changes, and the management of family wealth matters.

Mikulas specializes in corporate and M&A and was a Founding Partner of Samak between 2011 and 2023. Earlier, he spent over ten years at White & Case as a Senior Associate. Between 1999 and 2000, Mikulas was an Associate at Feddersen, Laule, Ewerwahn, Finkelnburg & Clemm.

Hajkova also has expertise in corporate and M&A and has been with Samak since 2021, having first joined as an Attorney-at-Law. Earlier, she was an Attorney-at-Law with Peyton, from 2018 to 2021, and with the Hajek Zrzavecky Law office, from 2011 to 2018, where she first joined as a Junior Associate in 2008. Earlier still, Hajkova was a Junior Associate with the Velisek & Podpera Law office from 2006 to 2008.

Focusing on corporate and M&A as well, Cerny previously worked as an Associate with Svehlik & Mikulas – the law firm within Samak – from 2012 to 2022. He was also a Junior Associate at Garris Legal from 2011 to 2012. Before that, Cerny was a Legal Assistant at Kotrlik Bourgeault Andrusko from 2008 to 2009, and at the Sophos Law Office from 2007 to 2008.

"Our team consists of experienced lawyers, tax advisors, and economic analysts," Mikulas commented. "We have a long-term practice in implementing sales, purchases, and transformations of companies, creating and proposing holding structures, selecting suitable methods for transferring company leadership to successors or providing daily support to clients in their business operations, such as legal agenda and tax services. This allows us to approach each client comprehensively and individually."
