I am a managing partner and executive of our law firm which has over 50 employees. My strength is thus a sense of management and business. I understand my clients because I work with a large number of people and I deal with the normal operation of the company on a daily basis.

I enjoy that because I used to work as a company´s attorney and marketing manager. I know it is important for the client the business transaction is realized but also the fact it is in accordance with law. And that is exactly my way of doing the work and I conduct our team to do the same.

My life is primarily connected with law and bar. That is where I started my career, as an articled clerk and consequently an assistant professor of the chairman of the Regional Court in Hradec Králové. I was the first spokesman ever of the Regional Courts of the Czech Republic.  

In 2007 I was appointed Deputy for Home Affairs of the Judiciary Department by the Minister of Justice Jiří Pospíšil, in 2009 the first Deputy responsible for the operation of the Ministry of Justice. In 2010 I was appointed Member of the Czech Parliament where I worked as a Deputy Chairman of the Constitutional Committee for three years. I was a member of the Legislative Council of the Government of the Czech Republic by June 2014.

In 2013, already as an attorney, I established the law firm LEGALCOM together with my colleague Libor Zbořil. The law firm merged with DOHNAL PERTOT SLANINA and HSL legal into the current form. Thanks to its affiliates it is one of the biggest law firms in the Czech Republic.  

I focus on legal relations to real property during the realization of real estate transactions and investment projects in the course of construction. I have a wide experience with the preparation and negotiation of complex contract documentation in this field.

I respect legal principles and one of them is the contracts must be fulfilled. I feel honoured to be an elected president of the Czech Association of Creditors since 2014. I may apply my legal and legislative experience there.   

The clients are often my friends and besides problems of their companies, I deal with life matters of these owners and managers, which is civil and family law. Ultimately I submitted the amendment to Family Act where I supported the residential custody.   


Since life is not fair to everybody, in 2011 I established with my wife the Endowment Fund AQUAPURA which is focused on helping patients with blood clotting problems.
