In addition to advising clients on issues impacting their business activities, the team is active in big-ticket TMT-related M&A and private equity transactions in the CEE region. On the regulatory side, it is advising clients on the EU-wide release of the 700MHz frequency band and related transition from DVB-T to DVB-T2 (the most advanced digital terrestrial television broadcasting standard). Elsewhere, cybersecurity matters are another driver of work. Team head Jan Andruško is experienced in advising leading media, broadcasting and digital content companies. Also recommended are Jan StejskalJan Jakoubek and Tomáš Ščerba.
