Evaluating Collaboration: Testimonials

THK Legal is a team of reliable experts who have been taking care of the majority of our trademark portfolio for several years. They assisted us in integrating Vitana and Hamé companies and in establishing Orkla Foods in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. With their advice, they never leave us, even in situations where we intend to leave the territory due to the adverse local legislation. They are with us in the context of our new acquisitions and divestments. I appreciate how they can combine a 'craftsman-like approach' to everyday operations with creativity in non-standard situations (e.g., legal disputes) – and unlike other large firms, their ego still fits through the door! I value that they respect our rapidly changing priorities and adjust their advice and recommendations accordingly.

"I had the honour of collaborating with Ms. Traplova on my authorial projects. I greatly appreciate her professional approach, coupled with her humanity, which made me, as a client without a legal background, always feel like an equal partner—someone whose voice is heard and whose project matters sincerely to Ms. Traplova. Her selfless support for young creators and their activities is admirable, and unlike others, she does not flaunt it overtly; rather, she is a silent philanthropist. For all of this, she has my deep admiration. If you are in search of an expert who can boast precision, reliability, and humanity, I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Jana Traplova.
