In the year 2000, my partners and I launched the PETERKA & PARTNERS law firm in Prague, Czech Republic. Over time we developed an ambitious idea - to create an integrated regional law firm, which at first seemed almost impossible. However, after years of dedication and hard work, we became a strong alternative to the global giants and local law firms active in the CEE region through their networks or best friends.
The PETERKA & PARTNERS offices in Prague, Bratislava, Kyiv, Sofia, Bucharest, Moscow, Warsaw, Minsk and Budapest are the joint controllers of personal data.

However, data subjects have the right to change or clarify their contact details, update which messages they wish to receive from us, and they may also fully opt-out of receiving our messages altogether.
