Adam Piwakowski, Partner, advises, „we have known Aleksandra to be an exemplary transaction lawyer and are very pleased that she has decided to join us.

Rafal Zieba comments, „if you look at recent rankings you will see that we started off the business with 32 lawyers. Our lawyer headcount now equals 40 and we expect to have 50 lawyers by the end of the year. This rapid growth is as a result of client demand with both existing clients enhancing their relationship with us, as well as new clients coming on board appreciating the way we do things different.”Back to the list
