Rowan Legal

On Monday 6 November 2017, the results of the jubilee tenth year of the prestigious Law Firm of the Year awards, organized by, were announced at Žofín Palace.

This year saw some very positive results for our office. We succeeded in retaining our top spot in the Information Technology Law category, for the eighth year running. “Winning the IT Law category for the eighth time in a row is a huge success that we humbly accept. This long winning streak would not have been possible without our extensive team of leading experts. Our greatest thanks belong not only to these colleagues, but of course also to our clients that we support on the most challenging IT projects around today. Special thanks also go to the EU – for supplying us with a range of rules and regulations whose application and practical implementation requires a lot of work”, commented Josef Donát, who heads up the firm’s information technology law practice.

We also achieved the highest ranking in the category for Public Procurement, which is another of our strongest specializations. “We especially appreciate the victory in this category in the year when the new Act on Public Procurement was fully implemented. It is a great reward for our entire team and for their intense efforts in preparing an extensive commentary on the new law, which was the first to be released on the market. These efforts have also been rewarded by a large number of important public investment mandates. We thank our clients for the opportunity to implement these often major projects”, said Vilém Podešva, who is responsible for advising on public procurement at ROWAN LEGAL.

We thank the jury for these top-notch rankings. The greatest thanks, however, go to our clients, who have been putting their trust in us for 27 years now and to our colleagues, who are constantly working to ensure that our services are always of first-class quality and meet the highest standards of our clients.
