Dentons has provided pro bono legal representation to whistleblower Maria Koranova, an employee of a state-funded organization founded by Slovakia’s Ministry of Health.

According to Dentons, “Koranova, who had worked at the organization for more than 15 years, filed a criminal report with the police to draw attention to the suspicions she came across as chief economist. Her employer retaliated by trying to terminate her employment under the guise of an organizational restructuring.”

Dentons is representing Koranova in cooperation with Nadacia Zastavme Korupciu (Let's Stop Corruption Foundation). They were “successful in obtaining a preliminary injunction in favor of the client from the District Court Kosice II and the decision was subsequently upheld by the appellate court. Koranova is now awaiting the court's verdict regarding the invalidity of her employment termination, as well as the investigation of the allegations she reported to the police,” the firm informed. 

Dentons’ team included Partner Stanislav Durica and Junior Associate Sona Kurillova.
