Former Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland Partner Karolina Stawowska and Of Counsel Izabela Wieworka have joined Wolf Theiss as a Partner (and Head of Tax) and Tax Advisor, respectively.
According to Wolf Theiss, “the expansion ... comes in response to growing demand for sophisticated tax advisory services in Poland’s rapidly changing business environment, and is a further step in the firm’s dynamic expansion in Central Europe.”
Stawowska acts for corporate clients and private individuals, as well as private equity and venture capital funds. According to Wolf Theiss, "she has worked on the restructuring of capital groups, on the development of tax strategies for acquisitions and sales of companies, and on investment financing. Stawowska also has extensive experience in tax proceedings and conducting tax litigation in administrative courts."
Stawowska was at Wierzbowski Eversheds from June 2010, having spend the 13 years before that at PwC in Warsaw.
“It’s a great pleasure for me to join Wolf Theiss’ team of recognized experts and support its expansion in one of the most interesting markets in the region,” Karolina Stawowska said. “For the last two decades, Poland has been on the radar screens of major investors, who are seeking sound tax advisory as they expand in the CEE/SEE market, and I’m happy to join Wolf Theiss in providing those services."
“Adding both Karolina and Izabela to our existing strong team of tax experts is a further boost to our expansion in the region,” said Niklas Schmidt, Wolf Theiss' Vienna-based Tax Practice Group head. “Their remarkable professional experience will enhance our provision of complex professional services in the rapidly changing tax law environment in Poland and throughout the CEE/SEE.”
