Chadbourne’s Polish Office Goes Independent


In May 2016 the Warsaw office of Chadbourne & Parke spun off into independent status and is now operating as Radzikowski, Szubielska i Wspolnicy (RS&W), with Chadbourne itself no longer formally present in Poland.

Chadbourne issued only the following brief announcement about the change: "For improved flexibility and client service, it was decided that our Warsaw practice would best be conducted by Radzikowski, Szubielska i Wspolnicy operating as an independent law firm that is part of Chadbourne's international legal network. We look forward to the ongoing success of this longstanding collaboration.”

Despite its withdrawal, Poland remains listed on the Chadbourne & Parke website with the note that “legal services in Poland are provided by Radzikowski, Szubielska i Wspolnicy sp.k., an independent law firm that is part of Chadbourne's international legal network” — with users wishing more information sent directly to the RS&W website.

When contacted by CEE Legal Matters, both Chadbourne and RS&W stayed fairly tight-lipped about the change, with Chadbourne responding to our inquiries by suggesting we speak with RS&W, and RS&W responding to inquiries by forwarding Chadbourne’s statement and adding “we do not have further comments.”

Following the change, former Chadbourne and RS&W Partner Marek Krol left the firm to join Magnusson (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on June 23, 2016).
