Who we are

Our law firm, RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS s.r.o., was formed in June 2009 by a merger of two independently functioning law firms: Ružička & Partners, s.r.o. (formerly Jaroslav Ružička law firm) and CVD s.r.o. (formerly Csekes, Világi, Drgonec & Partners, spol. s.r.o.), operating on the Slovak legal services market since 1992. Until November 2018, the firm operated under the name Ružička Csekes s. r. o.; due to the decision of JUDr. Erika Csekes, having chosen to retire after more than 25 successful years of practice, its name changed to its current form.

As one of the largest commercial law firms in Bratislava, we are able to offer a wide range of general and specialist legal services and to field teams capable of managing the largest projects and transactions. It is thanks to the merger that our lawyers are able to specialise and provide expert advice on all areas of commercial law in all the key industry sectors. Our experience includes corporate and commercial legal advice, antitrust/competition, real estate, intellectual property law, dispute resolution and banking and finance, including project financing – we have been very successful advising clients involved in large infrastructure, energy and real estate projects.

In addition to legal advice, we provide consultancy in tax and business accounting through our exclusive alliance with companies from the CCS Group and, occasionally, through other leading international tax advisory organisations.

Our firm is a member of several well-known and highly regarded international networks and societies, including Legal Network International (a worldwide society of lawyers specialising in international legal  services) and State Capital Group (an integrated global network of over 140 independent law firms).

In addition, we are members of various chambers of commerce operating in Slovakia, including: the Slovak-Austrian Chamber of Commerce; the Slovak-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry; the Israeli Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia; the British Chamber of Commerce in the Slovak Republic; and the American Chamber of Commerce in the Slovak Republic.

Our firm and our lawyers are regularly singled out for positive recommendation in the various leading international legal publications, including  The Legal 500, IFLR 1000, Chambers Europe, Chambers Global and PLC Which Lawyer.

Our lawyers are frequent contributors to specialist legal publications and periodicals and are regularly invited to speak at national and international conferences and seminars.
