Piper in Prague is delighted to announce that it has won the Law Firm category at this year’s Best Office of the Year awards. The awards, now in their second year, celebrate the best office interiors in the Czech Republic, focussing on quality and innovative work environments. The awards were presented at a gala evening on Thursday 22nd February, in the Slovanský dům, Prague.
More than 70 companies were judged within nine categories. This year the jury also included sustainability and the environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the offices in its judgement criteria. The panel, consisting of architecture, design, human resources and other sector experts, awarded DLA Piper Prague “Law Firm of the Year”, for their office located in a renovated historic building, in the centre of the capital city.
Miroslav Dubovský, DLA Piper’s Prague Country Managing Partner and Head of Corporate and Commercial commented, “First of all, I would like to thank all those who have helped us to complete our unique offices. The Prague office, like all DLA Piper international branches, fits into a unique and easily recognisable brand style and also reflects the local region. In searching for a concept for the Prague office, our architectural studio chose an accompanying theme of Czech Cubism, which is quite unique in the world. We were conscious that having the right environment helps the productivity of our employees: our premises are light and airy, with an emphasis on quality materials. In addition, the design had to be interesting but also to evoke the established reputation of our lawyers and services. The global style that expresses the essence of DLA Piper and the Czech Cubist motifs have resulted in an unique interior, and we are delighted that the jury has appreciated it. We are proud to have been selected as the winner in such a tough competition, especially from the IT and marketing sectors.”
