“We are very pleased that the book has not only got translated but also put into the Czech legal context, all in association with Wolters Kluwer and the Pro Bono Alliance that has also made a significant contribution to the project. Global Issues in Legal Ethics are valuable mainly for its comparisons of different international approaches that bring to the Czech discourse numerous inspiring ideas and conclusions regarding the role and importance of lawyers in society. At the same time, the book presents some professional trends that have become a common standard westwards from our border, such as corporate responsibility and pro bono legal advice,” says František Korbel, the author of the Czech foreword to the book, a partner of Havel, Holásek & Partners and head of the Havel, Holásek & Partners Academy.

By funding the book, Havel, Holásek & Partners continue their sponsorship activities in this area. Besides supporting the publication of purely legal books, such as Stories of Legal Terms by Pavel Holländer, a leading academic and a former Vice-President of the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic, Havel, Holásek & Partners have funded the translations of selected international bestsellers focused on leadership, management or marketing for three years. This year, the law firm has supported the first Czech edition of the world’s famous book on family business, Dilemmas of Family Wealth (published in Czech as Rodinné firmy na rozcestí).
