Chambers Europe, Czech Republic, 2017

Leveraging on the firm’s extensive top-tier network, Bird & Bird’s trailblazing Prague contingent has swiftly risen to prominence in the Czech Republic. It enjoys a sterling reputation in academic circles and has been commissioned by the nation’s leading legal publisher to pen the sole commentary on the Patent Act. Rainmaker and client service award winner Vojtěch Chloupek heads up the group. He marries industry expertise with profound theoretical insight and oversees patent operations with a watchful eye. President of the Licensing Executives Society in the Czech Republic, he has a deep pool of experience when it comes to IP monetisation. Andrea Jarolímková is Chloupek’s deputy, although she has also built up a loyal following in her own right. She specialises in soft IP, but knows plenty about patents, too.

IAM Patent 1000, 2016

"The firm is a relatively new name on the market, but it is certainly on the rise and a major competitor when you’re trying to go after international portfolio management work.”

World Trademark Review, Czech Republic, 2017

Firmly plugged into the firm’s global network, Bird & Bird’s Prague outpost is a preferred choice for both multinationals and domestic enterprises with ambitions of expansion. It has enjoyed something of a red-letter year in the last 12 months; the addition of a new trademark officer and a heightened focus on brand management have consolidated its position among the nation’s elite. Creativity is a hallmark of its offering; its recent innovative application of trademark law in a bid to help pharmaceutical companies to halt parallel imports is just one example of its intellectual acuity.

World trademark Review, Czech Republic 2016

"Global IP leader Bird & Bird has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the Czech Republic and as one of the country’s elite trademark practices, it offers guidance on all manner of brand rights problems, but really excels in resolving intractable spats"

WTR 1000 2018

"Knowing exactly what makes brand-related counsel constructive – where added value lies – it frames its rigorous technical analysis in the context of wider business concerns and never stops scoping out monetisation opportunities"
