Robert Neruda, Partner
Do you enjoy thinking about whether mineral water and lemonade are real alternatives for consumers? Is rail pricing affected by bus prices? What are the benefits and risks of exclusive distribution of branded goods? Have you ever thought that too low prices can be harmful to consumers? Do you know which office can impose fines in the order of hundreds of millions of crowns? Have you ever wondered if a corporation has human rights, such as the right to privacy? If you answered yes to these questions, we would like to offer you the opportunity to take care of them professionally and be there for things that move the economy and affect all consumers. You will help clients navigate the pitfalls of antitrust law and find business solutions that are not associated with the risk of huge fines. Do not hesitate and join the large team of competition lawyers and economists operating in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which defends the interests of prestigious clients before competition authorities and courts. We are looking for real enthusiasm for the field, the desire to be a team player, modesty and the desire to win. The HAVEL & PARTNERS competition group includes a football player, Japanese scientist, travelers, horse rider, cyclist, lover of classical music, hockey referee, long-distance runner and volleyball player. We are all a little different, but we all pull together and for all the main goal is the success of the client.
