"We are looking forward to a period full of challenges and new opportunities that will open up by joining one of the world's leading IT providers," SWS Managing Director Martina Vlckova commented. "Thanks to this step, we can better compete in a competitive environment, gain a stronger market position, access to new technologies, and expand our reach."

The Eversheds Sutherland team included Managing Partner Borivoj Libal and Associate Marek Poloni.
