I enjoy learning about the still unexplored corners of private law and the commercial aspects of our clients' practices, and I prefer to set up and negotiate any commercial agreements, especially those involving technology or intellectual property. My children still make me approach things practically enough and with an eye for detail, my penchant for playing the ukulele trains my patience and pursuit of precision, and travelling gives me the opportunity to take things easy. I try to make the most of it all when providing legal services, which I do not consider boring in the least, as some might think.

I still remember the day when my father brought home a telephone modem and I first heard the loud tones that this fascinating device made when connecting to the Internet. At that time I didn't know yet what all was possible thanks to this playing box, but after more and more intensive research with the care of a prudent manager, I gradually got to know all those internets that Mrs Věra Pohlová wanted to ban (Metro daily, 17 September 1999). Since I never excelled in mathematics or physics due to my legal background, law was an obvious choice for me to connect these two worlds. Currently, I specialise in information technology and intellectual property law, with a focus on the legal aspects of these areas in the context of the Internet. I like to spend my free time travelling, practising martial arts and cooking, but I also enjoy a good book or film.

All my life I have aspired to a career in journalism, but my father, brought up in hard-line socialist Russia, did not recognise any other profession than lawyer, doctor or engineer (ironically, he himself does not work in any of these fields). In the course of my studies, I jumped from one legal practice to another - constitutional law, international law, sports law - but nothing awakened a sense of purpose in me. But one day I thought, why not combine my natural curiosity and interest in new technologies with my future career path? And so it was that I found myself, a little bit by chance, at H&P surrounded by the best of the best. If I'm not working on comprehensive analyses for our clients, I'm probably watching AC Milan games, fighting with my cat, travelling to exotic paradises with my amazing girlfriend, or watching films or TV shows with a minimum rating of 80% on ČSFD.

Few people are lucky enough when their work becomes their hobby. But who can resist when you have the opportunity to deal with the icing on the cake of law such as FinTech, blockchain and cryptocurrencies! Of course, it's never a bad idea to spice up your professional day with the attractions of electronic legal acts, personal data protection or even IT law and TelCo. Relaxation is hardly necessary then, but if it is, I seek my peace by meditating in the forest.

As soon as I got the opportunity to do a one-year postgraduate course in European law in the Netherlands after my studies at a law faculty in Prague, I knew immediately that I wanted to specialise in international trade law, technology law and intellectual property, as well as related aspects of competition law. I started in the Prague office of a global law firm where I was also interested in telecoms and technology transactions, as we were going through the dot.com boom, and I had the opportunity to work briefly in London. In 2001, we founded our law firm Havel & Partners and I continued in this specialisation. After 2008, I formed our dedicated Commercial IP and IT advisory group, where we are now fully engaged in all areas of intellectual property, digital economy, e-commerce, fintech, drones, autonomous cars, blockchain and technology transactions and all possible types of commercial contractual relationships, both domestic and cross-border.

I first encountered competition law in my second year at law school in one of the last lectures on European law. Honestly, there is only one thing I remember from that lecture to this day: "I just hope I will not pull it out in the exam!" I didn't. At that time, I guess it was still fortunate. However, I am a person who really doesn't like not understanding something. So a few months later I had my best idea yet and enrolled in a course on EU competition law. And as the saying goes, who is enthralled by competition law never comes back. So here I am. And if I’m not, you'll probably find me on the dance floor. In my free time I like to dance salsa, bachata and urban kizomba.
