Eleven professional categories and 20 recommended experts: ROWAN LEGAL moves up in international The Legal 500 rankings

03. 28. 2024

Prague, March 27, 2024 – The leading Czech law firm, ROWAN LEGAL, has added another significant success to its achievements, following the recognition by Chambers in March. Today, the Legal 500 released the results of this year’s international law firm rankings, in which ROWAN LEGAL was ranked in 11 professional categories, three more than last year. The rankings also list 20 individual attorneys from our firm, recommended by the jury as distinguished experts based on client feedback. This is also an increase from last year’s figures.

ROWAN LEGAL was featured in 11 categories this year, which is three more than last year. It again achieved the highest Tier 1 ranking in two categories, Intellectual Property and TMT, confirming the firm’s position among the absolute world leaders in these areas. ROWAN LEGAL also achieved Tier 2 rankings in Dispute Resolution, EU and Competition, Projects and PPP and Projects and Energy. The firm also achieved new rankings in the Employment and Real Estate and Construction segments.

This year, three representatives of the firm achieved The Legal 500’s highest accolade of Leading Individual, traditionally bestowed upon only 20 individuals in the legal world. Partners Josef Donát and Michal Nulíček won in the Intellectual Property and TMT categories, while another ROWAN LEGAL partner, Jan Měkota, won in the EU and Competition category. Other experts from the firm were ranked in Tier 1, including Samuel Král (Intellectual Property), Jan Tomíšek (TMT) and Pavel Hejl (TMT) among recommended attorneys. Ranked in Tier 2 were Marcela Káňová (EU and Competition), Vilém Podešva (EU and Competition, as well as Projects and PPP and Projects and Energy), Jiří Votrubec (Projects and PPP) and Lukáš Sommer (Projects and PPP as well as Projects and Energy), Lukáš Duffek, Miloš Olík and Petr Zábranský (Dispute Resolution), and Anna Cervanová (Projects and Energy).

“Recognition in The Legal 500 is something we all highly value,” said Miloš Olík, a partner at ROWAN LEGAL. “Personally, I am particularly pleased that we have increased the number of professional specializations in which we are ranked year-on-year.”

In addition to the above-mentioned rankings, the firm also achieved success in other categories, namely Banking, Finance and Capital Markets, Commercial, Corporate and M&A and Tax (Tier 3), followed by new rankings in Employment and Real Estate and Construction. Among the individuals ranked in these categories were Martin Šubrt (Banking, Finance and Capital Markets), Jan Frey (Commercial, Corporate and M&A), Simona Mlýnek Štursová and Vladimír Hejduk (Tax), Romana Szutányi (Employment) and Martin Janoušek (Real Estate and Construction).

“We are delighted with this year’s success, as the rankings newly recognize the outstanding work of our colleagues in the Employment and Construction practice,” ROWAN LEGAL partner Michal Nulíček added. “We have significantly bolstered both specializations in the past year, so our clients can expect top-tier legal services in these areas, just as they do in others.”

The Legal 500 is one of the most prestigious global indicators of the quality of legal services. Published annually, the final rankings are based on an evaluation of many criteria, with the greatest emphasis being placed on the real experience of law firm clients themselves.

The creators of the rankings place particular emphasis on feedback regarding the friendliness of client service, innovative and effective professional approaches to problem-solving, and satisfaction with specific team members within a firm. For ROWAN LEGAL, the rankings in The Legal 500 mark another significant achievement in March after the recent rankings published by Chambers and Partners.

ROWAN LEGAL is a leading domestic law firm specializing in dispute resolution and arbitration, corporate and commercial law, intellectual property, IT, telecommunications, and competition, including public procurement. Its clients include major national and international corporations as well as public institutions. It employs more than 90 experienced lawyers in its offices in Prague and Brno.
