"I always search for clear and practical solutions for Your benefit."

Lucia Semančínová


Lucia’s core practice areas are data protection and information security. She has drawn up security documentation and advised on personal data protection for more than 200 organisations. In addition, she has represented a number of clients in proceedings before the Personal Data Protection Office and has taken part, together with her clients, in a number of inspections organised by the Data Protection Office. Lucia passed a data protection special exam and has been acting as an external data protection officer for a number of clients. She holds the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management certificate which makes her the best person to go to with legal questions on information security issues. Importantly, she is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the largest international association of data protection professionals. Lucia also frequently conducts training sessions about the protection of personal data and its practical application.

Her other main focus is on competition. She has over 11 years of experience as a case handler at the Department of Abuse of Dominant Position and the Department of Cartels in the Antimonopoly Office of the Slovak Republic. During this time, she participated in several dawn raids on business premises to secure evidence of potential anticompetitive practices. Lucia has also co-authored the Antimonopoly Office’s publication Cartel Agreements in Public Procurement.

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

In corporate law, her work included the establishment of companies and the registration of company changes, ownership interest transfers and the winding-up of companies, in particular through merger or liquidation. Lucia has advised more than 80 companies on issues of corporate law.

At SEMANČÍN & PARTNERS she leads the employment practice and the practice that advises private clients in family and probate matters. She also regularly gives pro bono advice through the Legal Assistance Centre.
