  • Poland

    30-04-2009

    The 3rd edition of Chambers Europe has just been published by Chambers & Partners. We are delighted to announce that Wierzbowski Eversheds as well as four of our individual practitioners have once again been recommended in various fields of law.

    The multiple recommendations are particularly gratifying, as the ratings by Chambers & Partners are considered among the most reliable.

    We have been recognized in the following areas of law:

    • Banking & Finance
      "This team has been highly visible on regulatory work and attracts praise for its activity on notable matters such as advising Telekomunikacja Polska on a number of contracts with EBRD, amounting to EUR 400 million. Clients prize the team’s “commitment and detailed work, paired with a good understanding of all the issues.” Marek Czarny is the main contact for banking work."
    • Competition/Antitrust
      "Historically known for its strong performance on the litigation front, this group now boasts an active presence on the advisory scene, where it has been particularly busy advising on sales schemes, distributorship agreements and exclusive dealings. With a stronghold in the telecoms and pharmaceutical sectors, the lawyers provide anti-monopoly, regulatory and advertising advice and handle contentious matters on a day-to-day basis."
    • Construction
      "Active in state-sponsored work on a variety of fronts, this international affiliate has two Polish offices and owes its prestige more to its Polish managing clients such as the cities of Wrocław - for the construction of a stadium for EURO 2012 - and Gdańsk, for road infrastructure development initiatives. Highways matters make up much of the workload, with numerous projects underway on behalf of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways. Other infrastructure construction highlights include a Polish railway stations development."
    • Corporate/M&A
      "This firm has advised Tebodin SAP Group on the merger of its seven subsidiaries in Poland. Managing partner Krzysztof Wierzbowski is the main point of contact."
    • Dispute Resolution
      "Another strong player in the Polish market, this firm is acclaimed by sources for its high level of visibility on competition and administrative-related cases. Commentators say that the four partners and 20 lawyers who make up the team are regarded as "an absolutely safe port of call.” Among the recent highlights for the group was successfully representing TPSA at the Supreme Court in a case involving allegedly misleading TV advertisements."
    • Employment
      "With lawyers dedicated to the practice area, this group adeptly deals with employment issues arising out of M&A transactions, company transfers and liquidations."
    • Intellectual Property
      "Members of this firm’s commercial/corporate and data protection teams support the IP practice at Wierzbowski Eversheds, so it is unsurprising that e-commerce is a particularly relevant field of activity. Magdalena Orzelska-Bratkowska is the main contact for IP matters."
    • Life Sciences
      "Apart from handling compliance and regulatory matters for pharmaceutical clients, this firm also focuses on the food industry. Bożena Ciosek heads the firm’s pharmaceutical law and food industry team, which assists a notable client list that includes Bristol-Myers Squibb, AstraZeneca and Kompania Piwowarska."
    • TMT
      "Permanent counsel to the incumbent operator TPSA, this firm is becoming a household name in the market. Areas of expertise include telecoms access and services agreements, Polish and EU regulations, and assisting in tenders."

    Our recommended individual lawyers include:

    • Arwid Mednis (TMT)
      "With a well-rounded yet in-depth knowledge of the telecoms markets, Arwid Mednis is hailed as "the king of regulatory issues."
    • Małgorzata Modzelewska de Raad (Competition/Antitrust)
      "Heading up the competition and litigation groups, Małgorzata Modzelewska de Raad is hot on the heels of the market’s leading advisers in the rankings: peers praise her absolute dedication and tremendous experience."
    • Henryk Romańczuk (Dispute Resolution)
      "Sources say Henryk Romańczuk is “a true gentleman and an effective lawyer, with a solid track record behind him.”
    • Ewa Łachowska-Brol (Employment)
      "Clients appreciate Ewa Łachowska-Brol's straightforward and concise style, and commend her team’s ability to cope with unexpected twists."
