The Prague office of Clifford Chance is pleased to announce the promotion of senior corporate associate Michal Jašek to the position of Counsel with effect from 1 May 2018. This is a significant achievement and reward for the unwavering dedication Michal has shown to the firm since his arrival in 2005.
After graduating from the Law and Philosophical Faculty of Palacký University, Olomouc, in 2003, Michal joined Clifford Chance in 2005, following a year and half spent as a junior lawyer at a Czech-German law firm in Prague. He was admitted as an advocate in the Czech Republic in 2007 and completed an LL.M. at the Law Faculty of the University of Sydney, Australia, in 2010.
In terms of his legal practice, Michal specialises in corporate and commercial law and has extensive experience on a wide range of cross-border M&A transactions. An active member of Clifford Chance's global Healthcare, Life Sciences & Chemicals sector team following a successful secondment to Clifford Chance's Düsseldorf office in 2013, Michal also now spearheads the Prague office's Technology Sector Group.
Alex Cook, managing partner of the Prague office, commented: "It is with pleasure that we announce Michal's promotion to counsel, recognition indeed for all this hard work, dedication and effort. Michal joined us back in 2005 and in his time with Clifford Chance, has become a highly experienced M&A lawyer, with a focus on many sectors but most notably healthcare and pharmaceuticals and more recently tech. My congratulations to him."
