Law Firm of the Year 2021

As every year we also participated in the Law Firm of the Year Awards in Slovakia, organized by the operator of the legal information portal www.epravo.sk and the publisher of the weekly magazine TREND. We are very happy that we achieved the best award in history in this prestigious competition 

Law Firm of the Year Award is an independent survey that collects information about law firms in legal persons, the association of legal or natural persons or individuals. Its designations are based on law firms' overall performance in a given practice area. Lawyers and law firms are assessed based on several factors and criteria that they examine in detail.

We are very happy to be announced as a

Highly Recommended Law Firm in three categories:

  • Development projects and real estate
  • Public procurement
  • Dispute resolution 

and as a Recommended Law Firm in the category of M&A. 

"I am very pleased that we have been once again awarded as one of the highly recommended law firms in three categories and as a recommended law firm in one category. Thank you especially to our colleagues, without their work and enthusiasm we would not have been able to achieve such an award" said managing partner of LGP Bratislava - Martin Jacko and continues: "It commits us to continue to provide the highest standard of legal services and to constantly expand our expertise in the provision of legal services." 

We also thank all the clients and partners who provided references for our work.

Evaluation criteria

Law Firm of the Year designations are based on law firms' overall performance in a given practice area. Lawyers and law firms are assessed based on a number of factors and criteria that they examine in detail. Evaluation consists of two parts. The first part is filling out the questionnaire and the second part is the opinion of the evaluators; each represents 50 percent.

Firstly, participating law firms had to complete a questionnaire to obtain an overview of individual transactions they have been working. The focus lies on legal complexity, difficulty, international elements, social impact, relevance to local justice and legislation. In the next part, the evaluators, persons from institutions outside the legal area such as representatives of major sponsors, investment banks and auditing firms have been working according to their own methodologies with a deep knowledge of the market and years of experiences. 

Lawyers and law firms have been assessed based on a number of factors and criteria that are examined in detail, focusing on professional skills, knowledge and experience relevant for the specialization and jurisdiction, understanding client needs and problems of the area of ​​its business, flexibility and responsiveness, process standards and significance of the transaction. 

The aim of the competition is to highlight the importance of expertise in providing legal services, and thus contribute to the strengthening of legal certainty.
