"White & Case has built a top tier corporate practice in Prague with a particularly strong reputation for advising private equity and financial sponsor clients and the infrastructure & energy sector," said White & Case partner John Reiss, Global Head of the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice. "Jan's arrival builds on our market leading position in the Czech Republic and expands our capabilities in the CEE more broadly."
The addition of Andruško, who joins the Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, supports the Firm's strategic focus on profitable growth in M&A. His broad practice embraces mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, general corporate matters, capital markets and securities, media law, dispute resolution and international arbitration, with a particular focus on technology, media & telecoms, private equity and infrastructure & energy. As well as experience in private practice, Andruško was Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of Nova Group, a leading TV and media group in the Czech Republic, between 2011 and 2013. He joins White & Case from Czech law firm Kotrlík Bourgeault Andruško, where he was a founder and managing partner, and brings more than 20 years of experience.
"Jan is a very senior lawyer and highly respected figure in the Czech business community whose broad experience, legal capabilities and leadership qualities will be valuable assets to White & Case," said partner Jan Matejcek, Regional Section Head, M&A/Corporate. "Our corporate practice in the CEE has a particular focus on the private equity, infrastructure & energy and TMT sectors, and Jan's knowledge of all three at both the domestic and regional level is an ideal fit."
