Maciej Gawronski, the Founder and former head of Bird & Bird's Polish office, has left the English firm to join Maruta Wachta.
According to Maruta Wachta, "Maciej Gawronski prior to joining Maruta Wachta was a Managing Partner of Bird & Bird Maciej Gawronski sp.k., - a top ten Polish law firm by revenue in 2015, which Maciej set up from scratch in 2008."
Maruta Wachta describes Gawronski as having "unrivalled reputation in cybersecurity, information technology and intellectual property,” and reports that he "specializes in banking & finance, cloud computing, corporate law, data protection, dispute resolution, and mergers and acquisitions."
According to the firm, "We firmly believe that Maciej Gawronski — who is known as an energetic leader and an authority in information technology law with almost two decades of experience — will surely secure the position of Maruta Wachta as the Polish leading law firm understanding technology sector.”
The firm also quoted Gawronski as saying, "Maruta is a leading Polish practice in technology, intellectual property and procurement, with [an] unrivaled reputation in Poland .... I have been watching their growth over the last sixteen years. So when Marcin Maruta contacted me, after I decided to leave Bird & Bird, the temptation to join Maruta was too big to resist, despite of my initial plans to take some time off.”
