Areas: Real Estate Lawyers
Frederika deals with all stages of residential and commercial property transactions. Thanks to her work assisting GSC Partner Harvey Posener, Frederika has been exposed to a range of high profile property work with clients including Universal Music and Channel 4. It’s a challenge she relishes.
“I enjoy contractual work,” she says, simply. “I find leases interesting – the interconnection of the clauses. Everything relates to everything else so it feels a little like a giant sudoku. You really have to think about it and see those connections; make sure everything is drafted correctly and understand the different interests at play.”
Frederika is virtually unique among lawyers in also enjoying Stamp Duty Land Tax work. “My colleagues are rather pleased about that because it’s not usually anyone’s favourite topic.”
Qualifying as a lawyer in Slovakia, Frederika is able to support Slovak and Czech clients not only in UK property matters, but as a translator for and introducer to other areas of the firm.
Outside of GSC, Frederika is committed to sport and is a regular at her gym where she particularly enjoys boxing and yoga classes.
Qualifications & Experience
Frederika joined GSC in February 2015 having completed a Master of Law degree in Slovakia. She completed her LLM in Commercial and Corporate Law at Queen Mary University of London, working at GSC as a paralegal whilst she completed her studies.
Frederika speaks fluent Slovak and Czech and has a good command of German, further reinforcing GSC’s reputation as a truly international, multilingual law firm.back to profiles
‘A small firm which punches well above its weight’ GSC Solicitors LLP undertook leasing transactions for several blue-chip corporate tenants, particularly in the media sector. It acted for a number of hotel owners regarding the acquisition and development of new hotels.

“The main positive comparison we have noted from GSC is the personal touch and commercial acumen.”
“We have often used different legal firms for IP and other work in the past, but GSC’s commercial approach and professionalism, coupled with the excellent working relationship we have built up over a number of years makes it our preferred choice.”
“As a Financial Advisor I have been personally using and recommending GSC for over thirty years. I have referred clients of mine to them and only ever been thanked for the recommendation, which should convey the confidence I have in the individuals, and the firm.”
“Great result today. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work in fighting our corner on this case. You have both been amazing. Michael incredible support and good ideas.”
