Welcome Note of Ondřej Peterka

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.

HOW CAN REPORTS BE SUBMITTED?
Reports may be made via www.nntb.cz/c/ujadmlgc or orally to the whistleblowing officer listed below. If you wish to submit the report in person, the whistleblowing officer must accept the report within 14 days of the date on which you requested to submit it in person.

WHAT IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF THE INTERNAL REPORTING CHANNEL?
The internal reporting channel is not used to make inquiries to the law firm, to report unlawful acts or unlawful acts which are about to occur other than those listed above, or as a means of communicating opinions about persons employed by or cooperating with PETERKA & PARTNERS.
Please also note that making a deliberately false report is an administrative offence punishable by a fine of up to CZK 50,000.

WHAT MUST THE REPORT CONTAIN?
The report must contain, at least:

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR RESOLVING THE REPORT AFTER IT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED?

Once you have submitted a report using the internal reporting channel, we are obliged to inform you of this fact within 7 days of receipt. This does not apply if you expressly request that you do not wish to be informed of the receipt of the report or if this could lead to the disclosure of your identity, or if the report does not state your identity or how to contact you. A period of 30 days is subsequently set for the assessment of the report, which may be extended twice due to the factual or legal complexity of such assessment. We are obliged to inform you of any extension, and the above applies similarly.
If the whistleblowing officer deems it necessary for the assessment of the report, he/she may ask you, in case your identity is known to him/her, to add or clarify the information provided in the report. However, the whistleblowing officer shall only contact you provided that this does not result in the disclosure of your identity.
We will inform you of the results of the assessment of the report without undue delay in accordance with the circumstances above. We will also inform you of any further action and corrective measures as soon as they are adopted. You also have the option of using the external reporting channel maintained by the Ministry of Justice: https://oznamovatel.justice.cz/chci-podat-oznameni/
