act legal now covering the next relevant European country

act legal has a clear roadmap. It has started at the heart of Europe with the clear intention to cover more or less all economically relevant countries in Europe within the next few years. Now, as of September 26, 2018, a renowned medium-sized Spanish law firm is joining the European alliance: DA Lawyers from Spain.

Mgr. Martin Řanda, LL.M., managing partner at ŘANDA HAVEL LEGAL and member of act legal ‘s steering committee: “We are very pleased to welcome DA Lawyers to act legal, a relevant player in Spain with a strong footprint on the Spanish corporate and commercial market. The professionalism, expertise and working methods of the firm fit in seamlessly with those of other act legal offices and the fact that the firm is joining act legal will further strengthen our position as renowned legal advisor to a demanding corporate clientele.”

Ivo Portabales, managing partner of DA Lawyers: “The accession to the alliance endorses that the services and the standards we offer are on equal terms with other European firms. But for me personally, there is something that particularly thrills me: the creation of pan-European practice groups which reinforces the core asset of our firm: the talent of our team and the service to our clients”.

Looking at act legal’s expansion roadmap, it is currently exploring the Italian market and same is the case for Romania as one of the fast-developing Central European countries with a larger population. The Nordics are also in the focus.

The alliance offers international companies operating on the European market high-quality advice, at the local and international level. This way act legal also forms (especially for American and Asian companies) an efficient one-stop shop for excellent legal support in Europe.


ABOUT DA Lawyers: DA Lawyers is located in Madrid and Valencia and has 57 lawyers specialized in industry sectors, in which they provide international, strong and full advice. The firm is recommended by The Legal 500 EMEA in intellectual property as well as in real estate and construction.

act legal now – together with DA Lawyers in Spain – operates 15 offices covering 10 countries in the economic heart of Europe: Germany (AC Tischendorf), Hungary (Bán Karika), Poland (BSWW Legal & Tax), The Netherlands (Fort Advocaten), Slovakia (MPH), Czech Republic (ŘANDA HAVEL LEGAL), France, Belgium (Vivien & Associés) and Austria (WMWP).

act legal stands for high quality, fair pricing, efficient bespoke processes, strong partner involvement and a personal approach, all of which make it an attractive alternative to major international law firms.

act legal offers to its clients best of both: Senior counselling based on entrepreneurial competence, deep commercial understanding and direct partner attention. And an international footprint, highest professional standards as well as strong „fire power“.
