Deloitte and its law firm Deloitte Legal is launching the Telecommunications & Media initiative, led by the experienced attorney-at-law Václav Filip. The initiative aims to concentrate on telecommunications and media as well as on developing client relationships.
“We want to make use of Václav Filip’s extensive experience in this specialised corporate sector. TMT is a rapidly developing segment offering a wide range of business opportunities. As a leading law firm on the Czech and Central European markets, we obviously want to make the best of these opportunities. We benefit from the interconnection and close cooperation with other Deloitte functions and colleagues across the region,” said Martin Bohuslav, Partner at Deloitte Legal.
“We will have to address a great many regulatory challenges. Telecommunications will be affected by the implementation of a new regulatory framework – the Code of Electronic Communications. Besides this, we are monitoring the development of new media, primarily the internet and video sharing platforms to which the new rules will also apply,” added Václav Filip.
Václav Filip joined Deloitte in late 2018. Before that, he was part of the in-house legal team at Telefónica O2 in Prague and Munich and also Head of the Legal Department at České Radiokomunikace. He graduated from the Faculty of Law of Charles University in Prague.
