100% ready to advise

Despite the pandemic, KUCERA is fully operational. “Our clients will continue to be advised,” says Dr. Stefan Kucera, Managing Partner of KUCERA. KUCERA has activated contingency plans, which include the deployment of professionals from the home office and the maintenance of central back office functions in the firm. Travel and meetings will be avoided. “Instead, we rely on modern communication, which enables us to assist our clients at all times, even in these difficult times,” says Kucera, explaining the emergency concept.
