Mountains & Safety

We are the only law firm in the Czech Republic that systematically deals with the legal regulation of mountain occupations, movement in the mountains, and related risks.

 

Our Cooperation with Professional Organisations

Our long-term partners are the Union of Mountain Professions, the Czech Association of Mountain Guides, the Union of International Mountain Guides, and the Czech Association of Mountain Guides. Our partner, Klára Dvořáková, serves as the Chair of the Legal Commission of the International Mountaineering Federation (UIAA). With her colleagues from the UIAA, she is currently developing a database of judgments from around the world concerning the legal consequences of climbing and mountaineering accidents. You can watch the following video on this topic.

 

Deep Knowledge of the Sector

Klára Dvořáková also lectures frequently on this topic. Information and a video on her most recent presentation at the Travel Law Conference 2023 can be found here

The following video shall explain the difference between a guide and a mountain guide.
