On November 2, 2015, Lithuania's SKV Law law firm has become a member of the CEE Attorneys network of law firms already operating in the Czech Republic, Poland, and the Slovak Republic.
“Expanding our network and adding another member has an impact not only on the scope of our operation, but I see it primarily as a kind of positive feedback on a long-term and demanding process of building the international network of law firms which we have recently started,” said Zdenek Tomicek, Partner of Tomicek Legal, a founding member of the CEE Attorneys network.
Inga Kostogriz-Vaitkiene, Partner of SKV Law, commented that: “By joining CEE Attorneys we confirm our ambition to provide clients with services of the highest level in Central and Eastern Europe. Thanks to our international reach we are able to provide legal services in cross-border projects in more than 10 languages, ensuring our clients long term and indisputable competitive advantage. Together with colleagues from the CEE Attorneys network we form a team of lawyers with extensive knowledge and a wide range of expertise, who understand very well local conditions and specific needs of clients operating in Central and Eastern Europe.”
The CEE Attorneys network is growing rapidly. Just launched in spring of this year by Tomicek Legal in the Czech Republic and Fox Martens in Slovakia (reported on by CEE Legal Matters on March 2, 2015), the network expanded to three countries in June with the addition of the SPP Legal Szmigiel & Papros law firm in Warsaw (reported on by CEE Legal Matters on June 16, 2015). SKV Law is the network’s fourth member, and first in the Baltics.
