On November 29, 2022, Eversheds Sutherland announced that the construction of the first Czech Ronald McDonald House by Nadacni Fond Dum Ronalda McDonalda (reported by CEE Legal Matters on April 21, 2021) had been finalized.
According to Eversheds Sutherland, the first Ronald McDonald House in the Czech Republic was officially opened on November 24, 2022: "soon the House will welcome the first families whose children are undergoing challenging treatment at the nearby University Hospital in Motol."
As previously reported, Eversheds Sutherland provided pro bono legal advice to Nadacni Fond Dum Ronalda McDonalda on contractual documentation related to the start of construction of the Ronald McDonald House.
According to the firm, the entire project took over five years. "It is definitely not 'just a job' for anyone involved in the project. The enthusiasm and tremendous commitment of all those who helped turn the idea into reality is contagious. [We] would like to thank in particular the Foundation's director, Ivana Pesatova, for her inspiration and unique collaboration," the firm announced.
The Eversheds Sutherland team was led by Partner Dominika Vesela.
