Richard Turoň has been working at MELKUS KEJLA & PARTNERS since March 2018 and primarily focuses on civil law with a concentration on real estate and corporate law. In addition, he advises on data protection (GDPR) and employment law. Prior to joining MELKUS KEJLA & PARTNERS, he worked at the Prague branch of the international law firm White & Case, at Kotrlík Bourgeault Andruško (successor to the international law firm Dewey Ballantine) as well as the Prague-based firm, rutland ježek.
As part of his practice, Richard specialises in furnishing advice in the field of real estate law concerning, among other things, buying and selling individual real estate assets and real estate units, leasing real estate assets or parts thereof, establishing easements and other rights over real estate assets, including construction rights. In recent years, Richard has specialised in providing full-service legal advice to both Czech and foreign developers, including most specifically the operators of office and shopping centres in Prague and Liberec. Besides dealing with the day-to-day agendas related to the operation of real estate complexes, including both operational and leasing matters, his extensive experience has also included participation in the development of two of the most commercially successful shopping centres in the Czech Republic.
He also provides advice in the area of court and arbitration proceedings, which includes both assessing potential success in the case, as well as the preparation and initiation of court proceedings or defending proceedings which are already underway, including representation before the courts and the subsequent enforcement of the rights awarded.
During his previous work experience, he also advised clients on insolvency and competition law along with Jiří Melkus and Pavel Kejla.
Richard also has considerable experience in the field of labour law, where he has successfully represented clients and contributed to the expansion of the case law of the Supreme Court in the interpretation of the right of an employer to dismiss an employee for redundancy in the event of unsatisfactory performance.
As part of his practice, Richard has also been successful in advising on family law, particularly in cases with a cross-border element.
