Former Aldertree Legal Managing Partner Juraj Fuska has joined CMS’s Bratislava office as a Partner.

According to CMS, Fuska has over 20 years of experience advising on negotiations, mergers and acquisitions, corporate matters, and greenfield investments. "As part of his move, Juraj brings with him a team of three Associates, Martin Melicher, Demian Boska, and Richard Svocak," the firm announced.

Before joining CMS, Fuska was a Partner with White & Case Slovakia, where he spent over ten years. After that firm's withdrawal from Slovakia (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 8, 2022) Fuska managed the rebranded operation – Aldtree Legal – for the past year. 

"We are delighted to welcome Juraj and his team to CMS," CMS Prague and Bratislava Managing Partner Helen Rodwell commented. "Juraj has a strong practice and client base that perfectly complement our existing offering in Bratislava, building on our strong capabilities in deal execution in complex multijurisdictional CEE transactions. We are looking forward to work with our new colleagues."

"I am excited to be joining CMS," Fuska added. "This truly international law firm has long been committed to the region. Its strong platform in CEE and across the rest of Europe made it an obvious choice for me to take my practice to the next level. I look forward to joining an ambitious team and growing the firm’s presence in Slovakia and Europe."
