HKDW Holasek has four equity partners – Jan Hrazdira, Jaromir Kaluzik, Lukas Nyvlt, and Jan Holasek – in addition to a team of over 20 lawyers. According to the firm, plans are to cater to “all areas of law with a particular focus on litigation and arbitration, insolvency and restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, construction and development, criminal law, corporate and commercial as well as legal counseling in the insurance and banking sectors.”
Hrazdira and Kaluzik co-founded HKDW Legal in 2000.

In 2020, he was elected as an independent senator of the Parliament of the Czech Republic
"We want to focus primarily on local and international profile cases and on providing legal services at the level of large international law firms,” says Holasek. “Our goal is to always deliver the highest possible level of legal expertise while maintaining a personal client approach and a team atmosphere within the company.”
“We want to forge long-term relationships with our clients and provide them with top legal support benefiting from a perfect understanding of their business needs and requirements," adds Hrazdira, Founding Partner of HKDW Legal. “I also take great pride in the fact that my partners and I take an active part in legal counsel and solving of legal issues our clients encounter.”
