Remarkable development on the Polish legal market: 10 experienced lawyers, all coming from Deloitte Legal, will have joined Taylor Wessing Poland until the beginning of February. Whereas four lawyers including Partner Łukasz Szymański came aboard on 1 December, a group of further lawyers including Partner Zbigniew Korba will follow in the upcoming two months. Most of them are experts in Banking & finance, some in Real estate. Taylor Wessing Warsaw will therefore substantially strengthen these areas of law which represent a strategic focus point for the firm and which show great potential especially in Poland.

Renowned experts in Poland and beyond

We are proud that with Zbigniew, who is a real caliber on the Polish legal market, Łukasz, who is also very well known amongst peers, and not least the excellent team, we are opening up great opportunities for us and our clients nationally, regionally and globally.”
