JUDr. Richard Feichtinger, PhD

Partner and Attorney

Richard covers the general practice in the office. He specializes in litigation and court matters, insolvency, contracts, real estate, and agricultural law. As a mediator, he also utilizes his years of experience in resolving personal, employment, and commercial disputes and matters.

Humility, honesty, directness, and fairness are the essential values that the founding partner instills in everyone in the firm. He teaches us to say things as simply as possible, but not simplistically. In his own words, his goal is to find the best solution to help the client, which does not necessarily mean going to a trial or seeking a sense of victory at all costs.

Richard gained work experience in the US and Germany, spent several years in Prague and Bratislava, and has been living in a small town for the past few years. Thanks to this, he understands people’s diverse motivations and needs—because every person has their own story. He says that his work never gets boring. He lives with his children in Znojmo.

He speaks German and English fluently.


Dispute resolution and insolvency

Real estate and construction law

Agricultural law

Finance and capital markets

I always seek justice and the path to reconciliation.
The greatest appreciation for me is the client's
reference. When they say, "Turn to this guy,
he is doing it right, and you can trust him."
