Telecoms specialist Daniel Prieskel has teamed up his three-lawyer niche practice with the technology, media and telecoms (TMT) practice at Charles Russell. Prieskel has launched a non-exclusive referral relationship with the firm and will be employed by Charles Russell as a consultant. “This is a part-time role that could lead to a full-time relationship,” said Charles Russell’s TMT head Mark Moncrieffe. “He wanted to retain a level of independence to pursue other business activities.” Prieskel launched Prieskel & Co after the demise of his previous firm Altheimer & Gray. Prior to that he was with Steptoe & Johnson Rakisons.
