Partner Stepan Starha has been elevated to an Equity Partner with Havel & Partners, while Lawyer Jiri Kunasek has been promoted to Partner.

According to Havel & Partners, Starha, who co-heads the firm’s Slovak office and the IP/IT law department, started his career 14 years ago. He has been with Havel & Partners since 2009. “In his new position, he will primarily continue to focus on the development of the Slovak team, customer care for the growing number of local clients, as well as advice to Czech clients eager to do business in and expand to the Slovak market.” He became a partner with Havel & Partners in 2018 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 5, 2018).

According to the firm, Kunasek, who has over ten years of professional experience, focuses on “commercial and corporate law, particularly corporate litigations, corporate transformations, and holding structures.” He joined Havel & Partners in 2017 – before that, he spent a year and a half as a Legal Assistant with Cech Partners and, earlier, almost a year as a Legal Assistant with Rybar Soppe & Partneri.

“Stepan and Jiri have provided long-standing support to our legal teams, which is why I am pleased that starting from January, they will be even more intensely involved in the management of the firm, as well as its sales and marketing activities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia," commented Havel & Partners Managing Partner Jaroslav Havel.
