The publishing house EPRAVO Group s. r. o. in cooperation with the weekly TREND announced on 26. 4. 2022 the winners of the 10th annual Law Firm of the Year 2022 awards. RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS has been awarded the title for the tenth time in a row in the category of Public Procurement. In addition, the firm has ranked first in the prestigious category of Mergers & Acquisitions.

The final rankings were announced at a gala at the DoubleTree by Hilton | Bratislava. The ceremony was held after a two-year-long hiatus caused by the pandemic. The results were published online at and and also in the weekly Trend, in a special insert titled Právo a advokácia (Law and advocacy).

The ranking aims to help the local market gain an overview of the key areas of legal practice. This year, awards have been given out in eighteen areas of law and two special categories - Pro Bono & CSR and Best Client Services.

In Public Procurement, RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS is an undisputed leader in the Slovak market, as proven by an uninterrupted streak of wins in this category since 2013. The firm’s lawyers have worked on many major public sector projects. They have also represented several private companies interested in becoming contractors to the public sector in Slovakia and abroad.

Ján Azud, leading partner for Public Procurement expressed his joy in receiving the award: “Public procurement law is key for the public sector; it is a tool enabling the government and local governments to satisfy their day-to-day needs, but also achieve the strategic goals of national and local policies. This area will be crucial also in terms of restarting the economy and addressing the consequences of the global pandemic and the security crisis. Therefore our victory in this category is special to us. Our tenth win in a row is a huge success and we are proud of it.”

Having been a leader in Mergers & Acquisitions advising corporate clients for many years, RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS sees itself more as a provider of comprehensive services of strategic nature, whether it is corporate reorganisations and acquisitions, changes to organisation schemes, implementations of miscellaneous systemic measures across organisations, or strategic advice in solving demanding corporate tasks at the top management level.

Dana Nemčíková, leading partner for Corporate Law, Mergers & Acquisitions adds: “As one of the key elements of corporate law, M&A is one of the most prestigious areas of legal practice both locally and internationally. We are grateful for having received the award in this very category. Our thanks go out to our loyal clients as, without their trust in us, these achievements would not be possible.”

“We value this award and the overall outstanding ranking of our office as the Law Firm of the Year very much. We are proud that in addition to our business achievements over the last thirty years of our existence on the market, our professional efforts and intense work in the individual areas and sectors of legal practice have been reflected by the independent acknowledgments of professionals both at home and abroad,” concludes Jaroslav Ružička, the Managing Partner.
