Former Allen & Overy Counsel Katarina Matulnikova has been appointed as the new Managing Partner and Head of the Employment team at Wolf Theiss in Bratislava. She takes over from Jitka Logesova, who had held the position since 2019.

Specializing in employment law, Matulnikova previously almost 13 years with Allen & Overy Bratislava, from 2010 to 2023, including as a Counsel and Head of the firm's Employment practice. Before that, she was an Associate with DLA Piper, from 2004 to 2010.

"With Katarina joining the Bratislava office, our team is primed for further growth both in Slovakia and across the wider CEE region," Logesova commented. "She is an outstanding lawyer who has proven her profound expertise and leadership skills over many years, winning her major recognition both domestically and internationally."

"Slovakia has very few women holding down Managing Partner roles," Matulnikova added. "And of those, even fewer predominantly practice in a non-transactional field. So I am very thankful for the boldness shown by Wolf Theiss in giving me the opportunity to lead and contribute to the well-established Wolf Theiss team in Bratislava. I am thrilled to further diversify the team and the portfolio, as we look to drive growth and continue providing top-notch advice to our clients."
