The Prague office of bnt attorneys in CEE, which forms part of the international network of bnt legal offices and is among the leading commercial law firms in the CEE region, is pleased to announce the widening of its leadership circle, effective as of 1 May 2019, with the induction of new partners Lukáš Havel (38) and Peter Maysenhölder (38). The new associated partners’ core responsibility will be the further development of client services, whereas Peter Maysenhölder will focus in particular on the German-speaking clientele while Lukáš Havel will focus on the area of life science & pharma.
“We have had a long stretch of success, experiencing growth as to the volume of advisory services for corporate clients and hiring new colleagues in response; naturally, this has in turn led to the need to enhance our team of partners. We are confident that Lukáš and Peter will enrich our leadership with new approaches to working with the client base, and succeed in taking our teams to new heights in their areas of competence,” commented Pavel Pravda, founding partner of bnt Prague, on the nomination of the new partners.

His preferred way of spending his hours away from the office is to be out and about with the entire family.
