The law firm Purkyt & Co. would like to inform its clients that, in connection with the amendment to Act No. 634/1992 Coll., on Consumer Protection, as amended, the Czech Bar Association is, based on an authorisation by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the authority for out-of-court dispute resolution between attorneys and consumers under contracts for the provision of legal services. For the purposes of out-of-court dispute resolution, the Rules of Procedure for Lawyers´ Conciliation shall apply mutatis mutandis (Resolution of the Board of the Czech Bar Association No. 2/1998 of the Official Journal, regulating conciliation proceedings, as amended). The Conciliation Committee of the Czech Bar Association is hereby entrusted with the out-of-court resolution of consumer disputes. Administrative support for this new agenda will be provided by the Bar’s Control Department. The website of this authorized entity is www.cak.cz.


As a rule, we begin by concluding agreements on the provision of legal services with our clients. Depending on the agreement and according to the exact requirements of the client, it is possible to choose between the following methods of determining the fee for the services provided by our law firm: hourly rate, fixed rate, flat rate, success fee.

It is also possible to agree on a combination of more than one of the above-mentioned methods of fee determination.

Fee according to the Lawyer's Tariff

If the amount of the fee for legal services is not agreed upon between the client and the law firm, Regulation of the Ministry of Justice No. 177/1996 Coll., on fees and remuneration of lawyers for the provision of legal services (the Lawyer´s Tariff), as amended, which regulates the so-called non-contractual fee, is used to determine the fee.

Purkyt & Co., as the controller of the personal data provided by the client on the basis of the contract for the provision of legal services, undertakes to process such personal data in accordance with legal regulations, in particular Act No. 85/1996 Coll., on the Legal Profession, as amended, and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC.


We have an extensive experience in providing legal services in the field of civil law, including litigation before the courts.

Clients seek our help in connection with the following cases, among others:

  • real estate transfers of all types, including representation before Cadastral Offices,
  • relations arising from and related to development plans and programmes, including relations connected with their implementation, such as transfers of new residential units into the ownership of their users,
  • contractual relations arising from and related to the lease and sublease of real estate,  
  • contractual relations connected with the exchange of real estate (in particular land),
  • contractual relations arising from and related to the activities of real estate agencies,
  • securing obligations (e.g. through lien and surety, contractual establishment of easements and their registration into the Cadastre of Real Estate),
  • relations arising from the Land Act, restitution claims and relations connected with expropriation proceedings,
  • preparation of all types and kinds of contracts regulated by the Civil Code,
  • damages and the restitution for unjust enrichment, and property law relations of all kinds.


Our law firm is the leader in restitution law and the most sought-after law firm in this field. JUDr. Martin Purkyt is a leading Czech specialist in the field of restitution compensation under the Land Act No. 229/1991 Coll., as amended, and related regulations.

In his more than 15 years of practice, JUDr. Martin Purkyt has provided legal services and helped settle restitution claims for hundreds of beneficiaries whose claims have not been properly valued and fulfilled by the state for a long time.

JUDr. Martin Purkyt has also achieved a number of groundbreaking decisions and jurisprudential changes in the case-law of the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic in the area of providing restitution compensation in favour of the beneficiaries. Among other things, a case he represented was already the subject of a decision of the Grand Panel of the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic in 2009, and the conclusion of the judgement issued in the case has not yet been revoked and its conclusions are therefore still fully applicable in the defence of beneficiaries against the arbitrariness of the state.

It cannot be overlooked that JUDr. Martin Purkyt represented a group of senators in proceedings before the Constitutional Court on the motion to repeal certain provisions of Act No. 185/2016 Coll., of 24 May 2016, amending Act No. 503/2012 Coll., on the State Land Office and on amending certain related acts, as amended, and other related acts (the so-called motion to repeal the second restitution dot). This motion was successful and the provisions in question were repealed, as the Constitutional Court confirmed in its decision No. ÚS 35/17 of June 2018, that the beneficiaries would retain the right to seek settlement of their long-standing unsatisfied claims in the form of transfer of replacement land, as the legislator had envisaged when adopting the restitution legislation.

JUDr. Martin Purkyt does not only deal with restitution issues in the context of representing beneficiaries in court proceedings or in out-of-court negotiations with obliged entities, but he is also an active lecturer in this area of law, whose opinions and views on issues related to restitution matters can also be found in the media.

Our law firm is currently providing legal services in the field of restitution law to dozens of beneficiaries pursuing their claims against the obliged entities, in particular the State Land Office of the Czech Republic, the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic and other state authorities. The highly contested matters are, in particular, the correct valuation of restitution claims and their proper settlement, both in the form of replacement land and by providing monetary compensation in an amount reflecting the current case law conclusions of both the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic and the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic. In order to provide its clients with comprehensive legal services, the law firm cooperates with a number of erudite expert witnesses who have been dealing with the issue of valuation of restitution claims for a long time, as well as archival institutions, surveyors, engineers, architects and other entities whose services are necessary for getting an above-standard restitution compensation.  

In case you also have a pending restitution claim and are not satisfied with its amount or the overall approach of the state in settling it, we will be happy to advise you on how to deal with it. We are ready to represent you legally or advise on the sale of claims at market prices.
