law to resolving it. Only then can we become a true partner for our clients. Business assessment: Good work requires not only knowledge of legislation, but also seeing it in the context of a client’s business. This allows us to combine legal and practical assessments and provide useful advice. Effective solutions: We offer our clients more than legal a diagnosis of their situation; we explore effective solutions to the challenges they face. Finding these solutions requires creativity and innovation. We don’t adopt one-size-fits-all strategies for our clients, but thoroughly analyse each situation, present tailor-made solutions, highlight their advantages and disadvantages and recommend the most appropriate course of action. We are clear and direct in our conclusions, and are not afraid to plainly express what we believe is the correct solution and stand behind it. We never hide behind ambiguous phrases. Recruiting and leading our co-workers: We’re only as good as our people. This is why we pay extreme attention to recruitment and training. We promote the professional development of our attorneys by both in-house training and assignments to top law firms abroad, and expand their capacity to work and communicate effectively in complex legal and business environments. Personal approach: It’s not just the legal details that differ from case to case, but the individuals involved. We respect the diversity of our clients and guarantee each a personal approach. Each case is supervised by one of our partners, who are always available for consultation at the client’s convenience. Communication and keeping deadlines: Knowing the solution is not enough. The art of saying it in a concise, comprehensible and timely manner is also required. Meeting deadlines, our availability and the quality of our communication are high priorities for us. Corporate culture: Glatzová & Co. is not a legal factory; we have no international headquarters that dispenses orders from on high or looks over every decision we make. We have established our own unique way of working and interacting with people; our corporate culture promotes responsiveness, accountability and a passion for hard work. We treat our clients’ problems as our own and care above all about resolving them in a satisfactory way. Our cor-
porate culture also requires maintaining the highest ethical standards in our respectful treatment of our clients and one another. We strive to always act with integrity and humility in working with our clients.
