Lucie Blažková

Leaders in Law endorses Lucie Blažková as our exclusively recommended Business Law expert in Czech Republic. If you wish to get in touch with Lucie please use the contact information provided above.

I provide legal services and professional counseling to individuals, companies and companies, specializing in civil, commercial, family and criminal law. I represent clients before the courts, arbitrators or administrative authorities, and I try to always negotiate the most favorable terms with the counterparties, I make the drafting of business contracts and other official documents. Emphasis is placed on individual approach to the client, on mutual trust. I always tell the client how to handle his case and provide him with the necessary explanations and documentation in time for the consideration of other procedures.

Conciliation consultation

Fast, cheap and effective dispute resolution: an agreement without the cost of legal proceedings, without lengthy proceedings and without nervous strain.

Civil Law

Civil law is the most extensive legal branch of the Czech legal order. The basic source of civil law is the new Civil Code, which is divided into the area of ​​family law, absolute property rights and relative property rights. The new Civil Code has brought about a great deal of changes and refinements, including, for example, the possibilities of dealing with property, the possibilities of inheritance, the regulation of family relations, the exercise of property rights, the status of animals, and the citizens more extensive in dealing with their former civil code . The most common legal act in civil law is a contract or agreement concluded in various forms.

Business Law

I provide legal services in setting up business companies, whether they are limited partnerships, public companies, limited liability companies, joint stock companies or cooperatives.

Family law

The family will always play an important role in society because the issue of family-legal relations practically affects each of us. The special position of the family lies in the fact that it shapes the personality of a person, his character, and a family of other social relationships. All legal relationships governed by family law are based on the main purpose of achieving the child’s well-being. Family law further regulates matrimonial relationships. Family law is a relatively separate legal branch, but it is in relation to civil law.

Criminal Law

In the field of criminal law, I offer counseling in criminal proceedings, their elaboration, and legal representation of injured parties in criminal proceedings, including claims for damages.

Offense proceedings

I represent clients in the offense proceedings. An offense is classified as a culpable act under the Offense Act and distinguishes between an administrative offense and a criminal offense. Infringement proceedings are dealt with where the social danger is lower than the criminal offense.


Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes. The mediator works as a third party, who helps both sides to come to an agreement – a compromise in their case. This process is very effective and much faster and cheaper than when a case is taken to court.  Mediation is designed for those who do not want to break the business, family or other realtionships for good.

Mediation is a flexible solution in a whole range of situations such as:

  • contract or any business disputes
  • consumer disputes
  • family disputes
  • neighbourhood disputes

The role of the mediator is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at a mediation agreement that both parties are happy to accept and that is binding for both of them equally. Mediators avoid taking sides, making judgements or giving guidance. They are simply responsible for developing effective communications and building consensus between the parties.

Mediation is a voluntary confidential process where the information discussed are not disclosed to any party outside the mediation hearing. If parties are unable to reach agreement, they can still go to court.
