NGL Symbio Defence Group offers a full range of legal services for defence industry clients in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
We have extensive experience in particular in defence procurements and related offset/industrial participation matters, including IP licensing.

In addition, we advise our clients on all other areas relevant from their operations’ perspective, including strictly defence-related matters (like production and trade of arms and export control restrictions), as well as on more general areas, including corporate/M&A, commercial, labour and litigation matters, in all those areas with due care to defence sector specifics.

We have created the NGL Symbio Defence Knowledge Management Centre that enables us to share the knowledge and experience among all jurisdictions and gives all members thereof (as well as our clients) access to the wide-scale expertise base allowing us to better understand local and regional defence markets and to respond to related clients’ needs.

  • Defence procurements
  • Offsets/industrial participation
  • IP licencing in defence sector
  • Production and trade of arms and military equipment
  • Export control restrictions
  • Quality assurance
  • Confidential information
  • M&A in defence sector
  • Commercial, labour and litigation matters in defence sector

Many of our team members have security clearance and admission to confidential information in their respective countries, in the European Union and in NATO (up to Secret level).
