Wierzbowski Eversheds’ lawyers as referees in the Lewiatan 2016 Arbitration Competition 
Krzysztof Wierzbowski and Maciej Jóźwiak were invited to the group of arbitrators of the V edition of the arbitration competition organised by the Court of Arbitration at the Lewiatan Confederation and the Young Arbitration Practitioners in Poland at the Lewiatan Court of Arbitration. The winners were announced on 17 June
Lewiatan’s Arbitration Competition belongs to the so-called, moot courts, competitions popular in the Anglo-Saxon countries, based on simulations of court proceedings and arbitration, conducted on fictional facts of the case. The organisers were inspired by the success of Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, the world's largest moot court competition addressed to law students and dedicated to international commercial arbitration. 
LAC is the biggest contest in Poland of its type, addressed to trainee lawyers and legal advisers from across the country. Its aim is to promote arbitration and innovative solutions for the rapid dispute resolution. The long term tradition of moot courts shows that this form of legal education brings great effects.
The competition consists of two stages: written and oral. The participants take on the roles of attorneys to the opposing parties, develop strategy, prepare pleadings and represent parties during simulated hearings. The V edition of the Competition related to a dispute on execution of the IT system implementation agreement.
The Competition’s main strategic partner was PwC. It was held under the honorary patronage of the President of the Polish Bar Council and the President of the National Council of Legal Advisers. The main prize in the form of a course the arbitration was founded by the Charted Institute of Arbitrators European Branch - the leading organisation for professionals engaged in arbitration dispute resolution methods.
