Schoultz & Partners Law Office (“Schoultz & Partners”), one of the leading company/commercial law firms in the Czech Republic, has announced today the appointment of JWA Prague s.r.o. (“JWA”) as its full service communications agency.
Schoultz & Partners was established in 2007 by UK native, Katie Schoultz, and Czech nationals Jiri Simecek and Rostislav Sustek. Schoultz came to Prague in 2001 in order to join White & Case, where she practised as an English solicitor, New York attorney and licensed Czech foreign advocate. During her six years with the American law firm, she worked as one of a team that included Simecek, a Czech advocate who is also a New York Attorney and Counselor at Law. In 2007 the two decided to leave White & Case and form Schoultz & Partners, inviting Rostislav Sustek, a Czech advocate and specialist litigator, to join them.
Now five years on, and with a team of lawyers that has grown and developed significantly since its early days, the partners have decided that it is time for an upgrade in brand image in order to reflect what is now a leading, experienced, and forward-thinking law firm, hence the JWA Prague appointment.
“We are very excited about this ‘face-lift’,” says Schoultz. “We are a young, dynamic law firm that places great importance on establishing a personal approach. We are about building strong relationships with our clients through our exceptionally high-quality service, and we need a look that reflects that.”
JWA is one of the few PR agencies in Prague to have worked with major law firms in the past, having previously represented Salans, Schoenherr and several others over the past 21 years.
“With our extensive past experience with major law firms, we truly understand the needs of the market,” says Jo Weaver, the managing director of JWA, adding that law firms are some of her favourite clients. “I really enjoy working with law firms; their demands are quite different from other clients. Schoultz & Partners, as a law firm with a ‘modern twist’, promises to present a unique set of challenges – and we are eager to get started!”
Schoultz & Partners offers a general company commercial practice and it acts for a wide range of clients from local SMEs to state-owned enterprises and foreign investors. Whilst the partners themselves have different specialties, they all believe in the same thing; that bigger is not always better. Says Schoultz “all of our team really love the law and we want our clients to see that we really care about what we are doing. At the end of the day, we are offering the same expertise and know-how that can be found in the major international firms, but with a close up and personal service that is a bit different to some of our competitors.”
