Legal advice for natural persons

Medical law matters
Successful representation of numerous natural persons in proceedings regarding their claims for compensation of damage to their health and compensation for non-pecuniary loss caused as a result of an improper healthcare provision. Our law firm has successfully recovered the reimbursement for damage of our clients’ health and their non-pecuniary loss from the responsible healthcare providers, and this based on out-of-court settlements as well as in proceedings before the courts.

Inheritance cases
We represented clients in inheritance proceedings involving the inheritance of real estate, funds, business interests, specific types of movable property and have assisted them in resolving various problems related to inheritance proceedings, including finding the way in which individual claims of heirs can be settled, representation in disputes over right to claim an inheritance, as well representation in communication with banks, other financial institutions and various state authorities.

We provided comprehensive legal advice to foreign clients – heirs of Slovak citizens or citizens of foreign states owning property in the Slovak Republic and we assisted them at every stage of the inheritance proceedings before the competent Slovak court or notary. We advised clients, among others, on assessing the validity of the will, the legality of the actions taken by the inheritance administrator, determining the value of the inheritance and we helped them draft the inheritance agreement and find the method of settling the claims of the creditors of the deceased.

We cooperated with foreign colleagues in resolving partial issues concerning the inheritance of property located in the territory of the Slovak Republic within the inheritance proceedings led before foreign courts or notaries, as well as in assessing the applicable law and jurisdiction in specific cases containing a foreign element.

Marriage and family law matters
We provided legal advice to clients in divorce proceedings, including the divorce of a marriage with minor children, in which we helped the spouses find a mutually acceptable way of regulation their rights to their minor children.

We also assisted clients in resolving their property disputes, especially with respect to the settlement of the spouses’ tenancy in common. In this respect we helped clients negotiate the agreement on the settlement of the tenancy in common and in cases in which it was not possible to find a solution outside of court we represented the interests of our clients in court proceedings.

Our effort in family law matters is to find a compromise solution to the dispute, ideally without the need for the involvement of a court that takes into account the individual needs of clients but also remembers the needs and interests of minors, which should always be the highest priority in these types of cases.
