Outsourcing a law department in the Czech Republic

A few readers might have missed this news. Outsourcing a legal department – like Continental Bank did to Mayer Brown back in 1991 – thrives globally. In admiration of its lapidary prose, in part because my command of Czech isn’t what it never used to be, but mostly because I cannot reproduce even a fraction of the diacritical marks, I quote at length from a release:

“Jiří Kučera, 36, is the head of new law office Kučera & Associates, the former legal department of electronics firm Foxconn CZ, a Czech affiliate of Taiwan based Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Kučera joined Foxconn CZ in 2001 as its legal department head. Previously, he worked for law firms Žižlavský & Partner and Kocián Šolc Balaštík a spol. Kučera graduated from the Faculty of Law at Charles University in 1997.”
