Renátus Kollár, Partner and Head of the Banking and Finance practice at Allen & Overy Bratislava, commented on the award: "A&O has advised on many significant transactions in Slovakia. Our leading position in the field of banking and finance is built on a strong, commercially minded team of lawyers, our close relationships with our clients, and comprehensive knowledge of the local market conditions. Recently, we advised Slovenské elektrárne (SE) on the extension and renegotiation of their EUR 2.9 billion loan portfolio. This was probably the deal of the year in the Slovak banking market and possibly the finance deal of the decade for SE. Our Capital Markets department had a very strong year as well. We deserved the prize.”
