04. 14. 2021



The middle of April is traditionally the time for The Legal 500 ranking (https://www.legal500.com), which publishes the results of its international comparison of law firms. ROWAN LEGAL is proud to be a part of this comparison, this year achieving high rankings in 8 categories. Apart from that, 13 of the firm’s lawyers can pride themselves in being included among the greatest experts in the Czech market.

ROWAN LEGAL has received the highest ranking of Tier 1 (or TOP Tier) in two categories – intellectual property law and TMT (technology, media and telecommunications law). “In our work, we try to keep pace with the changing world. The global pandemic has been showing us throughout the year that orienting ourselves towards technology and digitalization is a necessity for society. At the same time, the legal framework of that branch will be gaining more and more importance in the future, and the regulation initiative should be approached in the most systematic way possible, after careful consideration of all related details. That is why we appreciate the chance to be part of those pivotal projects, as well as the trust with which our clients turn to us in this area. This motivates us to continue improving,” commented JUDr. Josef Donát, LL.M., one of the partners at ROWAN LEGAL, who leads the intellectual property and TMT department, in response to his ranking. Together with Michal Nulíček, he is one of the highest ranked experts in intellectual property and TMT law in the Czech Republic. Other lawyers at the firm ranked in those categories also deserve special mention – namely Jan Tomíšek (TMT) a Bohuslav Lichnovský (IP, TMT – Rising star).

ROWAN LEGAL is also one of the leading law firms (Tier 2) in dispute resolution and number of experts ranked: Miloš Olík (Dispute resolution) and Lukáš Duffek (Dispute resolution). “Our dispute-resolution team is one of the biggest and most experienced in the Czech market. I am very pleased that this has been recognized by the international rankings, but especially by our clients. Dispute resolution is a demanding field, it does not depend only on knowledge, but also on experience and abilities, so we appreciate our ranking even more. In these difficult times, it serves as confirmation that we are developing in the right direction. Thank you,” said Miloš Olík, partner at ROWAN LEGAL, who is one of the most prominent figures in the field.

Other fields in which the firm received significant rankings are: Project & PPP (Tier 2), Projects & Energy (Tier 3), EU & Competition (Tier 3), Tax (Tier 3), Commercial, Corporate and M&A (Tier 4).

Our experts in these fields according to The Legal 500 are: Martin Janoušek (Projects and PPP, Commercial, corporate and M&A), Vilém Podešva (Projects and PPP, Projects and energy, EU and competition), Lukáš Sommer (Projects and PPP, Projects and energy), Martin Šubrt (Commercial, corporate and M&A; Tax), Ondřej Křížek (Commercial, corporate and M&A; Tax), Jan Měkota (EU and competition) a Anna Cervanová (Projects and energy).

The Legal 500 annual ranking is one of the most prestigious markers of quality in the legal service market. The ranking is a result of the analysis of a range of criteria, but it primarily focuses on the experience of clients, meaning the feedback about individual law firms that the compilers of the ranking receive from clients. They consider parameters such as responsiveness of client services, innovative and effective approaches to issues, and satisfaction with individual team members at law firms.

The ROWAN LEGAL team has 9 partners. It employs more than 100 people in its offices in Prague, Brno and Bratislava, including more than 70 lawyers and an internal tax team.
