Partner and Attorney

Petr is a recognized IT law, intellectual property, and data protection expert. As an attorney with more than 15 years of experience, he has wide-ranging experience in IT, telecommunications, as well as public financing.

He is fluent in Czech and English.


IT law and intellectual property

Public procurement and investments

In the legal field, we work with vocabulary.
Therefore, every lawyer must be able to use
the language, understand the meaning of words
and grammatical interpretation. Even a legal
memorandum should be written in a way
everyone understands.
