The “professional and dependable” Allen & Overy is “great at obtaining positive results” in enforcement and litigation scenarios. “A star on the market”, the international full-service giant has positioned itself as a go-to firm for multi-faceted instructions in Slovakia; as an example, it recently represented Australian motorcycle tuning software producer Techmark Software (trading as Woolich Racing) in a complex dispute that involved software hacking elements. Leading the IP and IT practice out of Bratislava is “straightforward professional” Zuzana Hečko: “Her advice is right to the point and she always finds the most time and cost-effective solutions in quick turnaround times.” Hečko has an impressive track record in high-stakes litigation, but also acquits herself with distinction when it comes to IP commercialisation. She has lately been assisting Epic Games and Cisco Systems on their respective acquisitions of Capturing Reality and Sli.do.
