Former Wolf Theiss Prague Managing Partner Tomas Rychly has been formally appointed to the Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic and will take his place on the bench on February 1, 2017.

Rychly, who has been MP of the Prague office of Wolf Theiss since 2012, was nominated to the Supreme Administrative Court in the spring of 2016, and the country's Judiciary Committee provided its formal consent after its plenary session on August 31st. On January 18, 2017, Czech President Milos Zeman formalized the appointment of Rychly and 32 other new judges to various courts in the country.

The Supreme Administrative Court in the Czech Republic is the highest authority on issues of procedural and administrative propriety, has jurisdiction over many political matters (such as the formation and closure of political parties, jurisdictional boundaries between government entities, and the eligibility of candidates for public office), and adjudicates in disciplinary proceedings against judges and state prosecutors. It is the court of second instance in actions against the decisions of authorities.

A more extensive report on Rychly's appointment to the bench and the effect of his departure on Wolf Theiss can be found in the December 2016 issue of the CEE Legal Matters magazine.
