The Ninth Win in the Public Procurement Category

The EPRAVO Group s. r. o. publishing house, in cooperation with TREND weekly magazine, announced the 2021 winners of the 9th edition of the prestigious Law Firm of the Year contest on 19th May 2021. RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS law firm was once again, for the ninth consecutive time, awarded the top prize in the Public Procurement category. 

The formal award ceremony in the form of an evening gala has not taken place even this year due to the pandemic precautions. The results have been published online on and as well as printed in TRENDs special insert magazine Law and Advocacy. The contest is aimed at providing the necessary orientation in key legal areas to players in the local market.

This year, contest organisers awarded prizes in fourteen expert categories and one special category Pro Bono CSR. RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS undoubtedly belongs to the leaders in the public procurement segment of the Slovak legal market, as evidenced by the unique unbroken winning streak in this category since the contests inception in 2013. Our lawyers have advised the public sector on a large number of significant projects.

Furthermore, we represent many private sector companies seeking the award of public contracts in Slovakia or abroad. Ján Azud, partner responsible for the public procurement practice expressed his delight with the award: Public procurement provides a gateway to the acquisition of goods, services or construction works by the public sector, and is closely tied to the strategic needs of the state. At the end of this procurement process, results can be seen, whether they are in the form of new or renovated infrastructure or other such tangible project. This is what sets the law of public procurement apart from a large number of other legal areas. Our effort culminates in a result available to serve the public for years to come. This is the very reason why we are especially pleased with the award in this category. We are delighted that our over 25 year-long activity on the Slovak market can be measured by more than just our individual business successes. We are proud to be a longstanding premium law firm, the work and results of which have been appreciated highly by independent legal professionals., adds JUDr. Jaroslav Ružička, PhD., the Offices Managing partner.
