Milena Hegenbartová LL.M.

Senior Associate

I'm devoted to using my extensive experience to help clients achieve their goals on development projects, while finding the most effective way to solve their problems.


Milena Hegenbartová is a member of the Real Estate team at DLA Piper Prague. She advises on major real estate projects, providing legal services with respect to securing administrative legal agendas for project companies concerning the construction, preparation and realization of projects.

Milena advises on construction law, especially in matters of zoning and building permits, including the preparation of successive agreements related to real estate projects. She also focuses on representing clients in proceedings before administrative courts on administrative actions against administrative decisions. She has significant experience in corporate law, particularly mergers and acquisitions.

Milena also advises potential investors and landowners in relation to municipal plans. She represents their interests in the process of accepting changes to land use plans at the request of the client, or if the municipality creates a new land use plan. The character of the land according to the zoning plan is crucial for deciding on future investments.

Milena publishes articles on construction law in professional journals (Stavební právo bulletin) and is a member of the Czech Society for Construction Law.
