For over 3 decades, Kocian Solc Balastik (KSB), a four-time recipient of the prestigious Chambers Europe Award for Excellence, has been an acclaimed market leader, creating innovative and groundbreaking legal solutions for its clients involving new legislation and legal and business concepts. A proudly independent Czech law firm, KSB is globally interconnected through long-term relationships with other leading independent law firms, with whom it frequently works on cross-border transactions. Its mission is to strategically guide its global and domestic clients in attaining and exceeding their business objectives in the Czech Republic. Delivering commercially driven and sector specific advice, the firm is not just ready for the future, but actively facilitating it in the evolving 21st century business world for the benefit of its clients, whose success is the firm's greatest satisfaction.

KSB has the skill and experience to advise on all aspects of commercial and financial law relevant to business and on all related issues of civil, employment and criminal law. Our aim is to obtain the fullest possible understanding of the client's business so that we can identify the best legal- and tax-effective solutions to achieve the client's business plans. KSB puts strong emphasis on professional ethics and building long-term relationships with clients based on mutual confidence and respect. KSB's lawyers and tax advisers, many of whom acknowledged leaders in their area of expertise, are able to form a closely-integrated team capable of responding swiftly to clients' needs. Several are qualified in other industry fields, allowing KSB to focus on practice areas where legal knowledge alone may be insufficient. Many have studied or practiced in other countries, regularly attend and speak at conferences and seminars and make contributions to professional publications in the Czech Republic and abroad. Leading KSB's advocates lecture at Czech universities, conferences and seminars at home and abroad. All lawyers and tax advisors speak fluent English or German while others communicate in other languages (Italian, Spanish, French, Slovak or Russian). KSB's advocates are qualified to advise on Czech and European law; some are also qualified to advise on the law of other jurisdictions such as England.
