In the second consecutive first quarter of a year, Weinhold Legal has been ranked in the Top 10 in the Mergermarket legal advisors league tables for global M&A transactions for the whole Central Eastern European region (which includes also numerous CEE jurisdictions and Russia).

In Q1 2013, Weinhold Legal was ranked 7th by volume (i.e. number of deals) and in Q1 2014 the firm has been ranked 8th by deal value.

In summary, the tables are based on global M&A transactions of over US$ 5m; for deals where the stake transfer is below 30%, the minimum deal value for inclusion increases to US$ 100m.

05.02.2014

Weinhold Legal has strengthened its expertise in labour law and litigation with the arrival of Senior Attorney-at-Law, Anna Bartunkova.

Anna comes to Weinhold Legal from the Prague law office of HOLEC, ZUSKA & Partners.

Milan Polák, head of Weinhold Legal’s litigation and labour law team, commented on Anna’s arrival: “We represent many corporate clients in labour law disputes. Further, as a result of the re-codification of the civil law, which became effective as of 1 January 2014, we face a massive increase in work related to the adoption of contracts amongst corporate companies and their managers, namely issues dealing with whether a manger is simultaneously an executive or a member of the board of directors. Therefore, I am glad to see a strong practitioner joining our labour law and litigation teams.”

Anna graduated from the Law Faculty of Charles University in Prague (JUDr.). In 2005, she graduated from the Charles University Faculty of Law in Prague. During her studies she also spent one semester studying law at the Paris Lodron University in Salzburg.

Apart from her native Czech, Anna speaks English and German. Anna is a member of the Czech Bar Association.
