We have excellent experience working with partner Roman Oleksik. Very critical was [the fact] that Roman has excellent understanding of our business and provides best technical (legal) opinions with great consideration of the commercial effect of those. Such combination could not be found often among professional advisors. Roman has perfect presentation and negotiation skill and this was proved many times during the hard discussion/ negotiations.

Roman’s approach to issues is very pragmatic and his knowledge of local issues in Slovakia and navigating some complicated issues has been extremely valuable.
