Former Wolf Theiss Poland Co-Managing Partner Ron Given has joined Deloitte Legal as its CE Senior Legal Counsel, responsible for all of the firm’s offices in 19 Central and Eastern European countries.

“I am absolutely delighted with this new role,” Given told CEE Legal Matters. “Deloitte Legal is already a phenomenal regional success with over 370 lawyers in the CE region addressing the most significant matters of very discerning local and international clients. This success has been enabled by exceptional lawyers and a collaborative culture that have both impressed and attracted me. I look forward to helping my new colleagues and clients manage and grow their success.”

"Although the number of lawyers and countries covered makes us the largest law firm in CE, our goal and plan is to better leverage the potential of regional focus and cooperation and to improve our profile to the law firm of the first choice within the region” said Jan Spacil, Deloitte Legal CE Leader. "I am really happy that Ron will help us to achieve our plans and strongly believe that his great experience in building successful legal practices across our region will enable us to significantly move towards our goals."

Given, who will be based in Prague, comes to Deloitte Legal from Wolf Theiss, where he spent ten years practicing and managing offices in Zagreb, Prague, Kyiv, and Warsaw. After leaving CEE in the spring of 2019 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on February 11, 2019), he served as Wolf Theiss’ U.S. Representative. Before moving to CEE in 2008, he was the general counsel of a NASDAQ-listed, Bermuda-based international insurance holding company and also had a long career as a corporate and banking partner with Mayer Brown.
