In the new edition of Chambers Global WKB has been recommended in the newly published International & Cross-Border Capabilities rankings. Only four independent law firms have been recommended in this category.
According to the publisher of the ranking, WKB is:
A strong independent firm headquartered in Warsaw, WKB combines in-house expertise with connections to foreign law firms to service the cross-border needs of clients. The firm is particularly well equipped to advise on matters involving European jurisdictions; its own French, German and Italian desks are supplemented by its membership of the Association of European Lawyers.
The firm is particularly active in cross-border banking and M&A transactions, and is routinely sought out to advise as co-counsel on deals involving multiple jurisdictions, often in conjunction with international firms. WKB’s diverse client base comprises domestic entities and multinationals, who can also call on the team’s disputes capabilities, as well as its transactional expertise.(Chambers Global 2020)
This recommendation is accompanied by numerous positive client reviews:
One client highlights the firm’s “effective handling of an international matter,” adding: “They have a good understanding of different legal systems. They have clear communications and a structured process.”
Another interviewee recalls: “Overall they were fantastic. They were responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I would approach them with ‘here’s how we do it in the US’ and they took that and showed me the equivalent in Poland or under EU law and how we get to where we would be comfortable.”
Apart from the firm’s international capabilities, the 2020 edition of the rankings yet again confirms WKB’s competencies in: Banking & Finance, Corporate/M&A, Dispute Resolution, Italy: Corporate/M&A: Foreign desks.
