Havel, Holásek & Partners receives the highest rating for competition law in the Czech Republic from the prestigious British agency Global Competition Review

Havel, Holásek & Partners has been included in the prestigious competition law yearbook, GCR 100, published by United Kingdom’s Global Competition Review (GCR). In the 17th Edition of the publication which sums up achievements in 2016, our firm is among leaders of competition law and economics in the Czech Republic with the highest possible rating of Elite, and among highly recommended advisors in the same practice areas in Slovakia (rating of Highly Recommended).


“Our law firm has one of the most experienced, largest, and fastest-growing teams of competition lawyers and economists in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Our ranking in the prestigious GCR 100 publication is a great success, even more so because we have received the Elite rating for the Czech Republic and the Highly Recommended rating for Slovakia for the second time in a row. This is a great satisfaction to us for the comprehensive service we provide to our clients by offering truly efficient means of resolution of complex issues in the field of protection and regulation of competition,” says Robert Neruda, the firm’s partner and head of its competition team.

Competition law, and recently also economics, are currently handled at Havel, Holásek & Partners by a team of 15 experts who offer a unique combination of experience from the public and private sectors, allowing them to have a comprehensive understanding of institutions, procedures, and policies within the European Union. Besides Robert Neruda, who had served as vice-chairman of the Czech Office for the Protection of Competition, the team also comprises, among others, Milan Brouček, the former chief economist of both the Czech and Slovak antitrust authorities and long-time economic expert of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition. “The combination of top competition law and economic advice as a single package, which we have been dynamically developing since last year, is currently unmatched on the Czech and Slovak markets,” said Neruda.
