In 2020, the Association of English Law was established in the Czech Republic as a society for lawyers who are dually qualified as both Czech attorneys as well as Solicitors of England and Wales. I was honored by my colleagues who elected me to be the first president of the association. I look forward to using this opportunity to further the goals of the association which include promotion of English law as legal system of choice for cross-border contracts, facilitating education in English law, developing industry standards and improving quality of legal services provided by association members to their clients.
