Borivoj Libal has become the sole Managing Partner of Eversheds Sutherland's Czech Republic office. Libal has been a Co-Managing Partner at the firm, alongside Bernhard Hager, since 2022.

Libal specializes in corporate and M&A. Before joining Eversheds Sutherland in 2022 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 5, 2022), he spent three and a half years as Noerr’s Prague office Co-Head (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 6, 2019). Earlier still, he was the Managing Partner at PwC Legal Czech Republic between 2015 and 2018. Libal also worked at Havel, Holasek & Partners as Counsel between 2011 and 2015. He was a Lawyer at CMS from 2009 to 2011 and at Norton Rose from 2006 to 2008.

"I very much appreciate the trust of the other Partners and all my colleagues," Libal said. "Our common goal is to maintain the excellence of the legal services we provide and to continue strengthening not only our core areas such as M&A, real estate, employment, litigation, and banking & finance but also in areas such as technology and cybersecurity."

According to Eversheds Sutherland, Bernhard Hager will remain in charge in Slovakia. In the Czech Republic, he will focus mainly on energy, environment, and ESG.
