Former Aldertree Legal Partner Vladimir Ivanco has joined the White & Case Prague office as a Counsel and Head of the Slovak Desk on March 1, 2023.
Specializing in litigation, corporate and M&A, and real estate, Ivanco has been with White & Case since 2006, having first joined as an Associate, and being promoted to Local Partner in 2020. In 2022, when White & Case pulled out of Slovakia, Ivanco, together with the local team, continued to operate the Bratislava office as Aldertree Legal (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 8, 2022).
"The arrival of Vladimir Ivanco is yet another sign of our long-term focus on further growth in the CEE region," White & Case Prague office Executive Partner Vit Stehlik commented. "Vlado is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer and seasoned professional who has earned himself a stellar reputation in the legal community and commands the respect of his peers. We believe he is the perfect addition to our successful team."
"Returning to the top international law firm in the region as a Head of the Slovak Desk is a new challenge for me – one that I am very much looking forward to," Ivanco added. "Both my colleagues and I myself stand to gain a lot from our renewed collaboration, though it is our clients who will feel the primary benefit."
