Profile:

My name is Ondrej, my pronouns are he/him, and I am an Associate in the IP, Technology and Data Protection team at Mayer Brown International LLP where I also completed my training contract.

I grew up in Czechia and after finishing high school I moved to Scotland to do a degree in international relations at the University of St Andrews. In my final year at university, I attended various open days with Aspiring Solicitors and took part in the AS Commercial Awareness Competition which helped me confirm that I want to become a solicitor at a global law firm. After completing a vacation scheme at Mayer Brown, I got offered a training contract and moved to London to do my GDL and LPC. While at law school, I worked part-time for Legal Geek, a community of legal technology startups, which ideally combined my interest in technology with the career I want to pursue.

The legal profession has historically been slow to change. We all have a lot of work to do to ensure that our teams are truly inclusive and diverse so that we can perform at our best. Aspiring Solicitors have helped me a great deal and I hope I can help others by offering advice and answering questions, big and small, about the legal profession. Please do get in touch.
