CEE Attorneys has announced that Czech lawyer Zdenek Strnad has joined the firm's Prague office.

Strnad has more than seventeen-year experiences in commercial law, during which he worked as a Senior Associate in the Prague office of DLA Piper Prague and then as with the Solil, Linke, Richtr & Spol. law firm. He specializes in major infrastructure transactions, particularly in the area of water management, and in public procurement.

“We are very pleased to welcome Zdenek Strnad in our team, and especially as a partner,” says CEE Attorneys Partner Lukas Petr. "In him, the office has gained into its ranks not only a highly qualified lawyer, but also a manager who will significantly contribute to the further development of CEE Attorneys in the region of Central and Eastern Europe.”

Strnad graduated from the Faculty of Law at Charles University and the University of Chemistry and Technology of Prague (Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology). “By combining these two fields of study," says Petr, CEE Attorneys "is now able to offer to its clients, especially those from the food industry, a possibility to use Zdenek’s unique market knowledge and experience."
