Home » About us

At ŠENKÝŘ PÁNIK law office we provide professional services to our clients across all fields of law and we do so in a timely manner.

We approach each client individually, making sure they are well informed about our every step and with guaranteed confidentiality.

Our everyday goal is to ensure our clients feel confident in us to solve any legal issues they might have, including non-standard procedures and situations.

In 2010 we joined our forces with the COTTYN International Law Firm. This strategic partnership resulted in establishment of COTTYN PRAGUE with the goal to provide an overall package for national and international clients, wishing to setup business or make investments in the Czech Republic and vice versa.

COTTYN law firm was established in 1978 in Belgium and has been constantly developing since then, which has led to establish COTTYN law offices in 8 European countries:

  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Slovakia
  • Poland
  • Austria
  • Hungary
  • Romania
  • The Netherlands

Clients are not “left on their own”, but always guided through the whole process:

  • investigation of possibilities,
  • performance of due diligence,
  • setting up the required legal & tax structure,
  • preparation or check of purchase of land, acquisition of a company or setting up a joint venture,
  • drafting & negotiating of all necessary contracts, permitting,
  • representing clients before courts and local authorities, as well as arbitration and litigation.
