As a member of the Public Affairs Committee of the Association for Internet Progress, Michal has dealt with the topic of regulation of online platforms, including GDPR issues, ePrivacy and advertisement regulation. He has personally advised on numerous significant digital services on the Czech internet market.

A prominent part of his law practice was the management of the litigation agenda of the company Seznam.cz, a.s., which consisted mainly of disputes regarding the protection of personality rights, specifically the protection of a legal entity’s reputation in relation to news and journalistic content made available online.

In the area of television and radio broadcasts, he has participated on the formation of the television Seznam.cz and the acquisitions of radios EXPRES FM and Classic Paha, including securing complete transactional and regulatory advice and providing following legal support during operational activities of the Seznam.cz group’s media activities.
