Legans Law Office

We help you to master the Czech bureaucracy

As practicing lawyers, we understand the difficulties foreigners have to overcome when settling down, acquiring a property or just visiting. Even more so, a significant part of the communications and proceedings are required to be held in a language other than the one they speak.

We give you the time you need, whether it be 20 minutes or 180 hours a month and we require zero commitments. If you are not quite satisfied, you can cancel our partnership anytime.

  • Quick and efficient legal help
  • Our advisors are fluent in English, French and German
  • Rates are fixed and agreed upon in advance (see prices below)
  • Transparency
  • Each case has major importance to us no matter how complex the issue is

Our Services:

Preparation and review of legal documents

We ensure all of your rights are protected as intended in legally binding documents. We can prepare an entire document according to your demands or review an existing one.

Visa, permanent residency and immigration

We have learned that the formalities required by public authorities and the proceedings held before them are often intimidating even for domestic citizens, therefore we understand the grester level of inconvenience foreigners may encounter when not fully acquainted with a local language or requirements. We would like you to experience our home country without unnecessary difficulties, for this reason we can provide you with full assistance on visa or permanent residency applications and other immigration matters.

Buying a property or renting home

Acquiring property, beginning construction on any real estate or construction work on an existing property usually entails legal obstacles such as obtaining the required authorizations or possible issues arising from a work contract with a vendor/supplier. Such activity also raises many legal questions which the owner must be prepared to address. Long delays and severe financial losses can often be prevented when handled within a reasonable period of time. We are prepared to propose contractual documentation, navigate you through administrative procedure, and ensure your property is designed and executed as you intended.

Setting up a business and its administration

Your mind is full of ideas about how to introduce a new product to the market or improve your current business and we will not allow your project to be jeopardized by bureaucratic procedure. We arrange and apply for all necessary permits to conduct business activities in the Czech Republic. Moreover, we can supervise and moderate important negotiations, prepare all business agreements, terms & conditions, and help resolve any B2B disputes.

Labour issues

We offer complex support for both employers and employees. We can provide you with employment contracts and internal directives as well as termination of employment contracts that comply with valid legislation in the Czech Republic.

Family issues

Even the most beautiful occasions such as weddings can be spoiled with annoying formalities, especially for foreigners, who are required to present a higher amount of  documentation than domestic citizens. On the other hand, resolving certain family issues is often quite exhaustive and painful and, in most cases, people don’t have enough energy to address necessary legal questions. We have the experience to relieve you of the legal formalities in both the pleasant and unpleasant situations in your life so you can focus on what really matters. We handle a variety of issues such as divorce, alimony payment claims, child custody, and domestic violence cases with the utmost respect for your privacy.

Assistance in proceedings

We are here to help and assist you with all proceedings held before any public authority regardless of the matter in question including personal assistance throughout the entire procedure or via our instant helpdesk. We can offer guidance on filling out applications or submissions to specific authoritities and protection against maladministration.

In addition, we can also act as intermediary for disputes in order to achieve a reasonable settlement.
