In 2006 COTTYN joined forces with a team of Slovak lawyers. This strategic partnership results in COTTYN BRATISLAVA and is to provide an overall package for national and international clients, wishing to setup business or make investments in Slovakia and vice versa.

COTTYN BRATISLAVA is specialized in working for corporate and private clients and has extensive experience in assisting them with all their day-to-day business in Slovakia. Also, as experienced project lawyers, COTTYN advices on all sorts of (international) contracts, cross-border investments, such as real estate and energy projects, and M&A.

COTTYN BRATISLAVA creates a unique advantage to national and international clients in having a regular contact in their home country, in combination with a contact in Slovakia who can assist them direct, hands-on and in their mother tongue. The COTTYN team in Bratislava is, besides in Slovak, fluent in Dutch, French and English.

Clients are not “left on their own” but guided through the whole process: investigation of possibilities, performance of due diligence, setting up the required legal & tax structure, purchase of land, acquisition of a company or setting up a joint venture, drafting & negotiating of all necessary contracts, permitting, assisting and representing clients in their contacts and relations with national and local authorities, as well as arbitration and litigation.

We offer the best of both worlds: home standard quality with excellent local knowledge.
