Telecommunications and Media 


We provide comprehensive legal services focused on telecommunications, media, and other digital technologies. This sector is undergoing a very dynamic evolution and we are ready to assist our clients in the full range of legal issues that new technological challenges bring.

We monitor the development of newly proposed legislation at the national level, and by working closely with our regional and global teams, we also stay updated on developments and trends in different parts of the world. This global perspective enables us to provide our clients with comprehensive and up-to-date legal advice. We are able to identify and adapt to rapidly changing legal trends, be it new regulations, technological innovations or changes in the area of data protection.

What clearly differentiates us from our competitors, both locally and globally, is our ability to work effectively with other Deloitte consulting teams that are among the leaders in their field. Thus, we bring not only legal advice, but also expertise in the areas of tax, corporate finance, consulting, and risk advisory to clients to address their issues. 

Our TMT team regularly appears in the results of foreign and Czech rankings. In the prestigious Czech Law Firm of the Year competition, we were awarded as a highly recommended law firm. In the foreign ranking of The Legal 500, we were ranked in Tier 2 and Chambers and Partners Europe ranked our leader Hana Gawlasova in Band 2
