Clifford Chance, working with Jalsovszky, has advised a club of banks led by Ceska Sporitelna on the financing for CVC Capital Partners and Emma Capital's acquisition of Packeta (reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 9, 2024). Wolf Theiss advised Packeta.

The bank club included Ceska Sporitelna, Ceskoslovenska Obchodni Banka, and Citibank. According to Clifford Chance, "the transaction further involves refinancing and restructuring of Packeta group's existing financing."

Packeta is the parent company of local technology and logistics company Zasilkovna and is a Czech Republic-headquartered e-commerce logistics and out-of-home delivery player with delivery networks in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It has more than 9,000 third-party pick-up and drop-off points and more than 6,000 automatic parcel machines, providing e-commerce delivery solutions to a customer base of more than 45,000 retailers, as well as straight-to-consumer home delivery services.

CVC is a private equity and investment advisory firm with a network of 29 offices throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the US, with approximately USD 177 billion in assets under management.

Emma Capital is a private investment holding founded in 2012 by Jiri Smejc.

The Clifford Chance team included Partner Milos Felgr, Counsel Dominik Vojta, Senior Associate Hana Cekalova, and Junior Lawyers Ondrej Steco and Sara Bartlova.

The Jalsovszky team included Senior Associate Adam Boross and Associates Roxana Martinas and Zsombor Gere.


Jalsovszky is one of Budapest’s fastest-growing and most innovative law firms. The key to our success is a business-focused approach paired with logical thinking. Clients appreciate that we are never afraid to voice our opinion even in critical situations.

We regard ourselves as a boutique law firm. No matter how experienced our associates are, we cannot be fully conversant in every area of the law, even in the field of commercial law. But when it comes to what we specialise in, we consider ourselves to be among the best.

Whether with regard to our clients or our staff, it is a human-oriented thinking that defines us. It is important for us to build personal relationships with our clients. We believe a personal relationship does not get in the way of providing a high-quality professional service – on the contrary, it makes the co-operation even more effective. We aim, further, to provide our colleagues with a friendly and supportive environment in which they can find fulfilment and motivation.
