about-us

Experience

We are a team of lawyers with extensive experience working for leading international law firms. We joined forces in 2010, and initially operated under the name OHB. After expanding our team by merging with Salač Legal who are specialists in providing consultancy for German-speaking clients in 2020, we now operate under the name OHBS.

Expertise

We advise our clients in all spheres of business and commercial law, particularly in the areas of real estate law, corporate law, M&A, project finance, insolvency law, employment law, transport law and IP&IT. We protect the rights and interests of our clients in disputes, whether before the courts, during arbitration proceedings, or with government administrative offices of the Czech Republic and the European Union.

Knowledge of sectors

We advise and represent foreign and domestic companies as well as private clients. We have extensive experience providing consultancy across all sectors of industry and services, particularly in banking, property development, construction, international transport, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, the automobile industry and agro-industry.

Bespoke solutions

We pride ourselves on dedicating the time and effort required to solve problems and implement solutions for our clients, regardless of whether the client is a multinational corporation, a local firm, a startup or an individual. We work individually, or as a team, according to the specific needs of the client and the given case. Our lawyers are specialists in their fields of expertise and have a combined experience of many decades advising foreign clients.

First-class services

Our focus is our client. We have a dynamic team of talented and experienced lawyers that provide our clients with the expert advice and strategic guidance they need to achieve their objectives in an increasingly complex world.

Long-term cooperation

We focus on building a relationship with each client. Our lawyers devise creative and efficient solutions to legal problems, no matter how complex the issues may be. We aim to exceed the expectations of each client. In our experience, this commitment to our clients transforms into long-term partnerships where our clients value working with a legal firm that understands their goals and the issues they face. Long-term client relationships have become a trademark of our law firm.
