Who we are KOCIÁN ŠOLC BALAŠTÍK Profile Law firm Kocián Šolc Balaštík, also known as KŠB, was established in Since then, KŠB has evolved from a small, traditional partnership into a large, modern law firm advising both domestic and foreign clients, ranging from small entrepreneurs to large multinational corporations. Without KŠB's ability to understand and respond to the particular needs of each client's sphere of business, neither this transformation nor the firm's on-going growth would be possible. KŠB is recognised as one of the largest law firms in the Czech Republic. With more than sixty lawyers and tax advisers, KŠB forms an integrated team providing legal services covering all sectors vital to business. The cooperation and close support of its members strengthens the firm's image as a group of knowledgeable and experienced individuals. Our professional experience in a wide spectrum of legal areas allows us to offer sound strategic advice. We provide advice not only in Czech, but also in major European languages. The majority of KŠB s advisers work at its main office in Prague, but KŠB also offers legal services through its branches in Karlovy Vary (since 1990) and in Ostrava (since 2009), which satisfy local business needs. KŠB was the first Czech law firm to operate a branch in Brussels, which satisfied the needs of our clients relating to the Czech Republic s accession to the European Union and helped to make their first years in this integrated market easier. In the period of its existence, KŠB and its attorneys were recognised by way of important international and domestic awards. The most important of these awards is the repeated title of Czech law firm of the year. We are not alone KŠB s clients both domestic and foreign often transact cross-border projects. We have therefore fostered good working relationships with lawyers and tax advisers world-wide. This web of professional and personal relations creates a natural basis for mutual assistance and the exchange of information and experience in many areas. KŠB places particular emphasis on its close relationships with major European law firms, which allow us to offer coordinated legal services at the international level, in particular in the Central European region. KŠB has formalised its co-operation with many prominent law firms in other countries. KŠB is a founding member of the World Services Group, the worldwide network of law firms and other professionals. We are also active in other international organisations and alliances. KŠB and its advisers are ever more active participants in international professional organisations of attorneys and tax advisers. Our participation in senior management positions of the International Bar Association provide an example of the respect accorded to our attorneys long-term involvement in international activities. P R A G U E K A R L O V Y V A R Y O S T R A V A What we offer Our law firm aims to provide complex professional advice fully appreciative of the client's differentiated needs and which is specific to the client's particular business. Our priority is understanding the client's goals. Rather than spend time enumerating potential obstacles, we try to suggest and help to implement the best way of achieving what the client wants. We prefer innovation to tradition, practical application to theory, common sense and flexibility to rigid formalism. We do not deal with details out of context but try to grasp the broader picture. The fact that many KŠB advocates also have qualifications in different fields (e.g. economics and the natural sciences) strengthens this approach. A modern approach to clients business interests goes hand in hand with practicing established values in the legal profession. We consider professional ethics to be the most reliable basis for building long-term and sound relationships with our clients. For us, advocacy is not just work. It is the cornerstone of a legal state. We are active in public life and help to organise the legal profession and play a pro-active part in international professional organisations. We wish to be perceived by clients and colleagues as friendly, loyal, intuitive and communicative, as well as professional. European dimension Our experience gained through our former branch in Brussels, as well as the experiences which many of us have gained studying Community law abroad or on secondment to EU Institutions, enhance our ability to advise on matters arising out of Community law. We understand that the concept of closed, truly national laws must be left behind and that this must be reflected in our various specialisations. Community law is no longer a matter reserved to a limited circle of specialists, but forms an intrinsic part of our knowledge and practice. Our efforts in this respect are particularly useful due to the fact that our clients real needs have expanded to a broader, more European dimension. We are always ready to provide analysis and legal opinions on questions related to Community law. We also keep our clients up to date in respect of legislation under preparation and important European Union decisions underway, while simultaneously identifying the resulting business impact. We are able to represent our clients interests before EU bodies as well as in proceedings at European court institutions. Our offer of services extends to municipalities, regions and other entities wishing to draw upon European Funds Everything for the client We seek to shield our clients from unnecessary risks and protect them from mistakes. To maintain the high quality of our services, we never cease in our quest to improve our skills and the application of the law. We have an internal system of regular continuing education and play an active role at professional conferences and seminars. Several of our attorneys lecture at universities and publish specialist articles. We understand the importance of making the right decision at the right time. It is our policy to monitor proposed legal provisions before they become law. We even contribute to the drafting of new laws and take part in the legislative process. In addition, we have a presence on the Government s Legislative Council. The client always comes first. Professional care on our part is complemented by comprehensive protective measures. We rely on internal systems to establish and avoid conflicts of interest and facilitate quality control. Our clients can also rest assured that we are covered by quality professional indemnity insurance. Our expertise KŠB has a long history of providing legal services. We have a wealth experience in areas including, but not limited to: company and commercial law labour law M&A public procurement and state aid securities and capital markets law of commercial obligations financial law and law of financial institutions Community law due diligence intangible assets, intellectual property law competition law environmental law litigation and arbitration law of public corporations and non-profit organisations insolvency finance from European funds project finance tax law (all direct and indirect taxes) construction law customs law real estate law social and health insurance matters infrastructure projects, including PPP P R A G U E K A R L O V Y V A R Y O S T R A V A Jungmannova 24 CZ Prague 1 tel.: fax: Na Vyhlídce 53 CZ Karlovy Vary tel.: fax: Českobratrská 7 CZ Ostrava tel.: fax: How we work Our clients Our aim is the speedy and sophisticated provision of legal and tax services to our clients. A fundamental part of achieving this goal is the way in which we work and the efficiency of that work. Our clients come from extremely varied business grounds.

We believe that teamwork is the most effective tool in this regard. Teams facilitate effective and flexible control of individual tasks, monitoring the quality of our performance and the competitiveness of the price. Each client matter is handled by teams comprising lawyers with the requisite skills and experience in the particular area of law (such as company law, M&A, capital markets, litigation and arbitration and competition law) and other experts from the firm.
