Dentons Poland is announcing that Partner Anna Maria Pukszto has become co-head of its Litigation and Arbitration Team with previously solo head Partner Wojciech Kozlowski.
Pukszto, who also continues to manage the firm's Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Team, has been with Dentons (formerly Salans) since 2000. Her focus is on representing financial institutions in disputes over products or relating to their liability to borrowers or investors and in challenging transactions intended to defraud creditors. She also handles litigation and arbitration arising out of commercial contracts and investment agreements. Her other practice area is restructuring and insolvency, including cross-border bankruptcies, and sales of insolvent debtors' assets.
“Anna's appointment as co-head of Litigation and Arbitration is an acknowledgment of her managerial and business skills," said Dentons Poland Managing Partner Arkadiusz Krasnodębski. "She is an esteemed lawyer and her skills and experience have played a huge role in the development of our litigation and arbitration practice which is currently among the largest and highest-ranked practices in Poland."
“I'm happy to join forces with Anna to manage a large team of ambitious litigators who cope with cases that are difficult on their merits, often precedential and without cut-and-dry solutions," added Wojciech Kozlowski. "I'm confident that this is a change that will also have a practical impact on all our clients who appreciate expertise and pragmatic approaches."
