About me

I am an attorney-at-law with many years of experience gained with leading Czech and international law firms. I offer highly qualified legal services to Czech and foreign clients. I have unique experience in the field of criminal law, especially in the field of defence of individuals and legal entities as well as representation of aggrieved parties, including corporate criminal liability and criminal compliance. Prior to establishing my own law firm, I spent more than four years in a renowned law firm which specialises in criminal law handling criminal law cases for the largest Czech law firm.

I graduated from the Faculty of Law at Charles University, later working in academia, where I also passed the rigorous and doctoral examination in criminal law. Over the course of my academic career, I have been involved in teaching and scientific activities, I have given presentations at many professional conferences and I am the author of many professional publications. I help clients resolve complex legal issues in the Czech Republic.

I can help you in criminal proceedings in the defence of individuals and legal entities, as well as with representation of aggrieved parties. I can provide criminal protection to a business through criminal compliance programs. In the fields of civil, commercial law and litigation, I offer comprehensive legal assistance to business corporations and individuals. We will of course handle your case sensitively and professionally. I pride myself on my professional and human approach. I help people solve their legal problems and defend their rights.
