Lawyer (Associate)

At Bird & Bird, he works as a junior associate in the Commercial and Intellectual Property Groups in Prague. Whilst he spent almost two years working in another recognised law firm focused on commercial, corporate and employment matters, Bird & Bird is his first full-time position after completing his degree, and he is in the process of gaining more practice experience. His goal has always been to work in an innovative international law firm regarded as the best in advising on intellectual property law matters, and Bird & Bird was simply his first choice. He believes a good lawyer should possess key knowledge of the client’s business, attention to detail, and good ethics. What he appreciates at Bird & Bird is the innovative and modern approach combined with the set of firm values, which he believe forms an environment where he will be able to fulfil his professional goals.
