Marashlian & Donahue, PLLC, The CommLaw Group, is pleased to announce the hiring of Ivan Zajicek, who joins the firm as seasoned Associate Attorney.
Ok, before we express praise and share the accolades of our newest Attorney, let us help you with… PRONUNCIATION!
Ivan Zajicek is pronounced “Eve-on, Zay-Jack” (or as Ivan explained to all of us, “Think Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak, but with a ‘Z'”)!
In addition to providing impeccable support to the firm’s partners and colleagues, Ivan has counseled clients with respect to regulatory compliance, fees, and communications taxes, worked on diverse commercial transactions, assisted with litigation and issue resolution related to siting/trenching, easements and crossings, and other property tax disputes. He has also provided support, as well as led, in other critical areas of our firm’s practice, including customer privacy, data security, STIR/SHAKEN (both U.S. and Canada) and other aspects of the government’s robocall mitigation regulatory regime. A dual Canadian/U.S. citizen, Mr. Zajicek also counsels clients on compliance with Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) decisions and obligations.
Ivan joined our firm already possessing several years of experience, both as an attorney practicing regulated industries law and engineer, where he worked in the heavily regulated energy sector. Ivan’s engineering background and broad regulatory experience, including representing telecommunications companies and renewable and conventional energy in greenfield and brownfield development as well as ongoing compliance, provides a unique skillset and perspective that ensures clients’ questions and concerns are addressed both from a regulatory and technical perspective, all while adhering to The CommLaw Group’s unique brand of pragmatic, practical, and value-driven service.
