In my almost 20-year practice, I focus mainly on personal data protection, competition law, tourism law and environmental law. I always search for clear and practical solutions for Your benefit.


Lucia’s core practice areas are data protection and information security. She gave legal advice on personal data protection for more than 300 organisations and she also has represented a number of clients in proceedings before the Personal Data Protection Office and has participated in a number of inspections. In addition, she provides the services of an external data protection officer for several clients. Lucia holds the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management certificate which makes her ideal comprehensive legal adviser on any legal question issue, especially on information security issues. Importantly, Lucia is a Chairwoman of the Association for the Protection of Personal Data, which brings together experts in the field of personal data protection. In this area, Lucia also teaches and conducts training on personal data protection and its application in practice.

Moreover, Lucia also deals with competition issues. She has 11 years of experience at the Antimonopoly Office of the Slovak Republic as a case handler in the field of abuse of dominant position and in the field of agreements restricting competition. She has participated in several unannounced inspections as part of investigations. In addition, she co-authored a publication issued by the Slovak Antimonopoly Office, Cartel Agreements in Public Procurement, in which she focused on the clarification of their origin and functioning and description of individual indications that help to detect collusion in public procurement.

Lucia gained experience at the Public Procurement Office of the Slovak Republic, where she routinely decided on objections raised by candidates in many public procurement processes. She gives comprehensive public procurement advice to contracting authorities and entities, as well as candidates and tenderers.

Last but not least, Lucia has a lot of experience in providing legal services for the tourism sector, for which she not only prepared a Code of Conduct for Personal Data Processing for travel agents and travel agencies but also advises many travel agents as well as their organization SACKA, including pandemic assistance during a pandemic situation caused by COVID-19.

In the law firm, she also provides advice to private clients, especially in family matters. She also takes patronage over anti-discrimination PRO BONO project and provides free legal services to people who are discriminated against, at risk of poverty or social exclusion.

Furthermore, she currently represents clients before administrative bodies and courts, especially in environmental law field, using her long-time experience in working with administrative bodies. She regularly represents clients during inspections exercised by The Slovak Inspectorate of the Environment, in subsequent administrative proceedings as well as in court proceedings in review of the legality of administrative decisions.
