As of 1 January 2023, Agnieszka Wiercińska-Krużewska and Aleksander Stawicki have become managing partners in our law firm. They replaced the previous managing partner, Jerzy Baehr PhD, in this position.
I am very pleased to be handing over the management of WKB to the next generation of equity partners. I took over the reins from Andrzej Wierciński. The law firm can grow if it is propelled by the energy of many people with different experiences and predispositions. Agnieszka and Alexander have been involved with WKB from the beginning, both having built large, market-leading practices. Now, with the participation of other equity partners, they will have a chance to apply their unique experience in their new role, said Jerzy Baehr PhD.
Jerzy’s tenure has been a very good time for WKB. We have expanded our team from 60 to nearly 140 lawyers, consolidated our position at the forefront of the Polish legal business and worked for many fantastic clients on pioneering projects. We are very grateful indeed to Jerzy for the effort he has put into managing WKB and very much look forward to his ongoing commitment and support – commented Agnieszka Wiercińska-Krużewska.
We are taking over the management of WKB recognising the many areas where we can still grow. We firmly believe that law firms like ours – independent, based on high-class specialists, building strong relationships at home and abroad – have a great future. We will do our best to fulfil our functions in such a way that we can proudly pass the baton to our successors in a few years’ time, Aleksander Stawicki added.
