Dentons has announced the appointment of Peter Kubina as Slovakia managing partner.

In addition to his new role, he will continue to co-head the banking and finance practice and head the litigation and dispute resolution practice in Bratislava.

“I am truly honoured by the trust that the firm and our clients have placed in me," Kubina said in a statement. "I look forward in working with the Europe leadership as well as my local colleagues to further develop our firm, our service offering and our client relationships in the Slovak market.”

Since joining Dentons in 2013, Kubina has built up together with Stanislava Valientová a leading banking and finance practice in Slovakia and has led many of the most important financing transactions in the market.

He advises on corporate lending, acquisition and leveraged finance, real estate finance, project, export and asset finance, as well as capital markets.

He also represents clients in disputes ranging from civil, employment and commercial litigation to constitutional matters.

In addition to his legal practice, he occasionally lectures at Comenius University.

Dentons also recently strengthened its Bratislava office with the promotion of Valientová to partner and the recruitment of counsel Patricia Gossányiová.

Valientová is the co-head of the banking and finance practice in Dentons’ Bratislava office.

She has led many of the country’s largest financing transactions and has assisted banks as well as multinational and domestic companies with bilateral and syndicated project real estate, asset, structured and corporate financings as well as their restructurings. She is also experienced in capital markets, bankruptcy and restructuring, real estate transactions and M&A.

Gossányiová is a counsel in the banking and finance practice. She has over 15 years of experience in complex finance matters, including lending transactions in the areas of corporate, real estate, acquisition and leveraged finance, project and trade finance. She also advises on debt capital markets transactions as well as on derivatives and regulatory matters.

Dentons’ Bratislava office is a full service business law firm, which employs 17 lawyers including four partners.
