bpv LEGAL – our international cooperation

bpv BRAUN PARTNERS is a founding member of the bpv LEGAL alliance, a close network of independent law firms covering the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe. Members of the alliance have been cooperating closely for more than 15 years (they started as part of a renowned international firm) and provide cross-border legal counselling from the key capitals of the CEE region: Bratislava, Brussels, Budapest, Bucharest, Prague and Vienna (hence the derivation of the abbreviation “bpv“).

We consider our affiliation with the bpv LEGAL alliance, which covers a wide spectrum of European fields of law, as one of our main strengths and a key strategic advantage. The interconnection of offices, which belong to the most renowned in their countries and have perfect knowledge of the local environment and language, which allows us to provide cross-border services at the highest level at a reasonable cost, compared to local branches of big international law firms burdened by extensive overhead costs.

Through bpv LEGAL we benefit from the combined international expertise of the member firms. This translates to outstanding experience of all 140 professional lawyers with extensive knowledge and specialisation. Our highly qualified experts have a good understanding of the local business environment and specific needs of the clients who carry out business within the region of Central and Eastern Europe, which enables them to bring the best solutions possible.

The office of bpv LEGAL in Brussels is instrumental in assessing issues of domestic law in the context of European law. We are thus one of the few Czech and Slovak law firms which is able to provide professional consulting services in such a complex area and to pursue our clients‘ interests in Brussels and Luxembourg, including the possibility to arrange direct contact with European institutions.

Throughout the years on the market, we have built up a network of partners in all key regions worldwide, which are not directly covered by the bpv LEGAL alliance. We are thus able to offer an international expert required by our clients, be it in the matters of international holding structures, transaction due diligence, secondment of employees and litigations.
