The law firm Deloitte Legal gets a significant boost in the Digital and TMT (Technology Media Telecommunications) area. The firm welcomes one of the most experienced attorneys in the field, Hana Gawlasová, into its TMT team leadership. Ms Gawlasová has been practising top-level advocacy in the technology and telecom industry for twenty years, often with a focus on compliance, privacy, and employment law, among other areas.
Jan Spáčil, Managing Partner at Deloitte Legal, says: “Our colleagues from Deloitte have been working with Hana for several years, so we have a lot to build on. Hana’s arrival moves our firm one step toward building complex client-oriented solutions in one of the most promising areas, which Digital and TMT undoubtedly is. We look forward to us and our clients benefiting from the pragmatic and practical approach to legal advisory services characteristic of Hana.
Martin Bohuslav, Managing Partner at Deloitte Legal, confirms it: “The Digital Team at Deloitte Legal and Deloitte as such gain experience and expertise with Hana’s leadership and that perfectly rounds out the portfolio of our services so that we can be clients’ first choice in Digital and TMT. I am glad that I am handing over the leadership of the Digital Team to Hana.”
Hana Gawlasová adds: “My legal advisory services in the field of digitalisation, TMT, and cybersecurity have significant technological overlap. Partnering up with Deloitte Legal is a perfect opportunity to offer legal-technological solutions to clients, which provides a crucial benefit and added value to clients at a time of an ongoing digital transformation of the public and private sectors.
Hana Gawlasová comes from the Squire Patton Boggs global law firm where she had been a partner since 2014. She had spent her previous career in Linklaters and Kinstellar law firms.
