Bird & Bird’s Prague office is relocating to Karlín.
After almost 15 years in the Czech market, Bird & Bird’s Prague office will relocate to Missouri Park in Karlín, Prague 8 in October later this year.
Missouri Park is part of the River City Prague urban district project developed by real estate company CA IMMO located on the banks of the Vltava River close to Florenc metro station.
“We have outgrown our current office in the Prague city centre. When looking for new premises we wanted to ensure that the new location not only suited our further growth requirements but above all reflected our core values – a dynamic, innovative, and responsible law firm. At Missouri Park we found everything we were looking for – modern tech facilities, smart energy solutions, as well as a healthy workplace for our people set in city greenery,” says Ivan Sagál, Managing Partner of Bird & Bird for Czech Republic and Slovakia.
“We are starting an exciting new chapter for Bird & Bird in the Czech market and our new office will no doubt support further development of Bird & Bird’s reputation as a strategic partner for innovative projects, often involving disruption or breakthroughs in our clients’ activities or in their sectors,” adds Vojtěch Chloupek, partner and head of the Intellectual Property practice and the Tech & Comms sector group in the Czech market.
In recent years, Karlín has become a vibrant district attracting people, as well as Czech and international companies. Continued investments and development of adjacent areas has produced closer connections with its surroundings, both with the neighbouring Štvanice island and Holešovice district, and with the newly built bridge HolKa which is due to open in spring 2023.
Bird & Bird selected architects from studio archicraft to help with the interior design of the office. Jones Lang LaSalle assisted with consulting services during the premises selection process, negotiated the terms of the lease agreement, and provided project management support.
