Allen & Overy moves to greener premises in Prague that nurture new forms of collaboration
14 April 2021
We are pleased to announce that Allen & Overy in Prague will be moving into new office premises in the ‘Missouri Park’ building, which is part of the exclusive River City complex, located in the heart of the Karlín district in Prague 8.
The firm anticipates that it will move into the new premises in September 2021.
Missouri Park, together with Mississippi House, make up the final component in the River City Prague urban district project developed by CA Immo. Missouri Park adheres to the most stringent standards while employing the latest office design trends and focusing on a healthy workspace. The building was designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, which is one of Scandinavia’s most recognised and award-winning architectural practices.
The relocation is an all-team effort spearheaded by a project team consisting of representatives from different practice groups and support staff that, together with external consultants and architects, are developing the office design. The new premises support flexible working patterns and are surrounded by green spaces. Major emphasis is put on reducing energy consumption and employing advanced waste recycling and CO2 monitoring. The Missouri Park office project aims to earn LEED Platinum, the highest level possible when evaluating a building’s energy efficiency.
“At A&O we have embraced digital transformation both for ourselves and our clients. In order to better service our clients, it’s time for us to move into a bigger space where we can work on projects in a modern environment that supports new models of collaboration”, commented Prokop Verner, Managing Partner of Allen & Overy in the Czech Republic.
Petr Vybíral, Partner and head of Allen & Overy’s finance practice in Prague, added: “The past 12 months have proven that we are ready to cope with the effects of the pandemic, by swiftly adopting new working practices and applying technologies in new ways to be able to provide the premium service that A&O clients rely on. We look forward to welcoming our friends and clients in this exciting new location”.
