Former Oftel head of legal Sebastian Farr has scooped the senior legal role at Irish telecoms regulator the Commission for Communications Regulation.
Farr takes charge of a 12-lawyer team, which looks after all of the legal affairs for the regulation of the communications and postal industries in Ireland.
Farr was favourite to win the general counsel role at newly merged UK communications regulator Ofcom before it dumped the role.
Ofcom appointed Henderson Chambers’ Peter Susman QC as a part-time independent standing counsel and announced that head of competition Polly Weitzman, poached from Denton Wilde Sapte, would lead the lawyers at Ofcom.
This left Farr out in the cold, but he will start his new role at the end of March. He will oversee the implementation of the new European communications directive.
Prior to joining Oftel, Farr ran Simmons & Simmons’ EU law practice.
