Havel & Partners has advised Ceska Zbrojovka Group SE on the acquisition, with Brazil's CBC ammunition manufacturer, of a stake in New Lachaussee, a Belgian designer and builder of ammunition production machines.
According to Havel & Partners, the buyers "acquired a joint share of 80% in the Belgian company, with the Czechs holding a minority stake. New Lachaussee is a Belgian arms manufacturer, with a history dating back to the first half of the 19th century.
