Dynamic developments in the aviation industry in Slovakia have opened the door for the provision of legal services in this sector. We have been providing long-term advice to several air carriers operating in the Slovak market, in particular on contract, regulatory, and consumer protection matters. We were involved in the acquisition of several regional bus companies and subsequent advisory services regarding their operation. We also provided legal services to a consortium that was successful in tendering for the privatisation of the airports in Bratislava and Košice. In addition, our law firm has been intensively engaged in the area of regulation of postal services, including successful representation before EU bodies regarding the liberalisation of so-called hybrid mail. It is also necessary to mention our advice on the regulation of road and railway transport.
