Former Wolf Theiss Partner Jan Kotous has brought a five-person team from that firm to Deloitte Legal in Prague.

Kotous has become the third partner at Deloitte Legal in Prague, joining Jan Spacil and Martin Bohuslav. He specializes in Corporate/M&A and Banking/Finance. According to Deloitte Legal, "among other things, he has extensive experience with transactions and legal advisory in the power industry, telecommunications, and financial services."

Among Kotous's team is Martin Kolacek, who joins as associate, and David Simek, who joins as a managing associate.

“We are happy that we were able to become part of a modern and progressive law office that provides support to a dynamically growing global law firm," said Kotous. "Thanks to a unique connection to other advisory and technology services and the global background, Deloitte Legal is quickly becoming a new driver in the environment of legal services, and we are happy to be a part of it."

Kotous joined Wolf Theiss in April 2011, staying for a year and a half before moving to the Prague office of Norton Rose Fulbright. He then returned to Wolf Theiss in July 2013, staying there until this recent move to Deloitte Legal. He also worked for five and a half years at Clifford Chance and a year at Squire Sanders & Dempsey (now Squire Patton Boggs). He graduated from the Charles University in Prague in 2001.
