Bakeš & Partners (the Firm) was established as one of the first private law firms in the Czech Republic. The Firm established its reputation through the complex restructuring of the balance sheets and financial structures of key banking and commercial companies in the Czech Republic. Such transactions have of necessity led to developing a flexible and creative approach to resolving problems to the benefit of clients and led on to what is now a key area of the practice: the resolution of problem loans and corporate restructuring. The Firm has a long-standing and important clientele consisting primarily of prominent Czech and foreign banks and corporations. The Firm’s policy is to be efficient and flexible towards the client’s needs with an emphasis on reliability, creativity and a pro-active approach.
