Working in the Czech Republic

Working in the Czech Republic

With more than 2,000 lawyers in 44 offices in 30 countries, White & Case is a top-ranked global law firm. We were one of the very first international law firms to expand into the Czech Republic, establishing our Prague office in 1991. 

Today, more than 50 lawyers and tax advisors work on a wide range of complex local and cross-border matters, drawing on our deep experience in national and international commercial law.

Practice areas

As one of the largest international law firms in the Czech Republic, we offer deep local knowledge and an excellent track record for clients looking to realize investment opportunities or navigate their complex challenges, both here and abroad.

Our core practices in Prague include: Antitrust/Competition, Capital Markets, Debt Finance, Dispute Resolution, Energy & Infrastructure,  Financial Restructuring and Insolvency, ICT And Tax Advisory, M&A/Corporate, Private Equity and Real Estate.

Who we are

We're proud that our people are from a wide variety of backgrounds. We attract people with a global mindset, who prioritize learning about different cultures, experiences, languages and viewpoints.

What we look for

It goes without saying that we expect a high level of intelligence and academic excellence, but it is the way you think that is absolutely crucial to us. You need to be able to analyze how the law works, and to be creative, yet pragmatic, in your interpretation of it. 

Our clients depend on our ability to resolve complex issues or to structure international transactions on their behalf, so we value collaboration and a team-oriented mindset. Clients and colleagues will rely on you to perform tasks accurately, efficiently and on time.
