Kurzynski Kosinski Lyszyk i Wspolnicy has merged with Wierzbicki Adwokaci i Radcowie Prawni in Poland, and the combined law firm will now operate as Kurzynski Kosinski Lyszyk and Wierzbicki.
After the merger KKLW (the same acronym as before, with the "W" now standing for "Wierzbicki" instead of "Wspolnicy") will employ over 20 lawyers, including Senior Partners Jacek Kosinski, Krzysztof Lyszyk, Michal Kurzynski, and Przemyslaw Wierzbicki, and Partners Agnieszka Wierzbicka and Lukasz Zabczynski.
According to a press release issued by the new KKLW, "the partners of both law firms decided that the merger will increase their area of expertise and improve the market share." That same press release asserts that, "due to the merger KKLW will provide a broader scope of services, including corporate law (M&A transactions and capital markets transactions), administrative law, public procurement law, restructuring and insolvency, real estate and construction, infrastructure, labour law, competition law and intellectual property law. The merger also means expanding the clients' portfolio that now includes public sector [and] Polish and international companies."
In addition, the firm reports, the "unparalleled" experience of former WARP Managing Partner Przemyslaw Wierzbicki and his team in litigation, "combined with KKLW successes will give the new law firm a leading position on the market of sophisticated civil and commercial litigations."
"This merger strengthens our competitive edge," said KKLW Partner Michal Kurzynski. "For years we have been competing with the biggest law firms because we have parallel knowledge and experience. At the same time we can be more flexible as far as our remuneration is concerned."
"Our lawyers have an extensive knowledge of some of the major industries, such as infrastructure, energy, banking and finance, pharmaceutical, sport and entertainment," said Przemyslaw Wierzbicki. "As KKLW we are planning to grow even further, so now we will concentrate on reaching to new clients, as well as to leading professionals. We want to be able to keep expanding our scope of services."
The new KKLW will take the place of the old KKLW at the Cosmopolitan building in Warsaw on Twarda street.
