Petr Valent is one of the partners of ARROWS and an attorney-at-law who focuses primarily on commercial law, including commercial contracts, international transactions, restructurings, mergers and acquisitions. He is also interested in sports law, start-ups, investments and development.

Petr most often provides comprehensive legal advice to entrepreneurs, especially smaller and medium-sized businesses, and often conducts negotiations with business partners and creditors on their behalf. He also focuses on private equity, corporate restructurings and acquisitions, import and export of goods and services, mainly from EU and US countries.

Prior to joining ARROWS, he had his own law practice focusing on domestic and international commercial law. In cooperation with a major regional law firm, he provided legal advice to the most important South Bohemian companies, e.g. represented the winning carrier in the then largest contract of the South Bohemian Region for the operation of trains in Šumava. He also dealt with tax disputes (especially VAT issues in trans-community transactions) and energy (with a focus on alternative energy sources - PV plants, biogas plants).

In 2012 and 2017 he lived in the United States, where he graduated from the LL.M. program at the University of Southern California Law School, majoring in US law. He also completed a nine-month personal fitness trainer course at NPTI (National Personal Training Institute) in Colorado. Due to living abroad, he is fluent in English, and routinely provides all legal services in English.

He also studied International Taxation for a year at the University of Economics in Vienna. Since 2018, he has been living simultaneously in two countries, Austria and the Czech Republic, and he tries to both promote the interests of (not only) South Bohemian entrepreneurs abroad and assists Austrian clients in their business in the Czech Republic.

Petr is a member of the World Trade Center, Denver, Colorado, USA, the Czech Chamber of Commerce, the Czech Bar Association and is also an active member of the Czech Volunteer Fire Brigade.
