The right deal at the right time
Deloitte Legal leads with purpose, values, and innovation, solving complex issues for our clients and communities.
M&A law is complex and fast-paced; which is why Petr Suchy, Director, Deloitte Legal, Czech Republic, had made it his career. In fact, it was the opportunity to work on cross-border, global M&A deals that brought him to Deloitte Legal in 2003. “I could have chosen another law firm, but Deloitte Legal was at that time and still is one of the few global legal service providers,” says Petr. “Here, I’m part of a network of over 1,700 lawyers in 74 countries, and I get to provide legal services to some of the world’s most respected organizations.”
Petr’s star has been rising since joining Deloitte Legal, and five years ago, he moved into the leadership role for the Czech Republic’s M&A team. Heavy manufacturing and real estate construction and development transactions are his team’s areas of focus. Petr describes his team members as open, creative, client-driven, team players. “I’m proud of this team,” says Petr. “They are top performers, enthusiastic about their work, and committed to making a positive impact for clients. Working with them is one of the best things about Deloitte Legal.”
Getting a deal done right brings Petr’s team together with Deloitte tax, financial advisory services, and consulting professionals on M&A engagements. “Deloitte Legal is not your traditional law firm,” says Petr. “I can offer clients a wide range of legal services and bring in Deloitte’s core business services and technologies.” That yields benefits for Petr’s clients and him personally. “When it comes to the due diligence process, for example, I don’t have to engage outside advisors. I have the legal, tax, and financial services of Deloitte, so my team and I can get consolidated findings to clients faster and more cost-effectively, and that keeps clients very happy; which is what I am in business to do.”
Doors are open at Deloitte Legal—including the senior leaders’. “If you have an idea, you’re encouraged to take it forward,” says Petr. “I have never met a person at Deloitte Legal who wasn’t open to colleagues’ ideas. We believe that the next great solution can come from anyone and anywhere.” That kind of thinking spawns innovation, growth, and creates trust within teams and with clients, as well as happy colleagues, which Petr believes creates happy families and communities and impacts a lot of people.
“To me, this is probably the best time to join Deloitte Legal. We are growing. We have the green light to grow substantially, and we have ambitious plans for the future,” says Petr. “Clients are looking for legal service providers who understand business. Deloitte Legal is better tooled, equipped, and aligned to face clients’ current and future demands. That makes for a great career opportunity.”
