Michal Pawlowski has assumed the position of Managing Partner at K&L Gates in Warsaw, taking over from former Managing Partner Maciej Jamka, who managed the firm since its launch in Poland in March, 2010, and who now becomes Senior Partner and will focus on further development of the dispute resolution and arbitration practice.
According to K&L Gates, Pawlowski, who is also in charge of the office's transactional practice, will also "be responsible for the further development of the law firm and its current activities.
"After a long period of dividing time between the management of the law firm and the practice of law, I decided to resign from the position of managing partner of K&L Gates Jamka sp.k.," said Maciej Jamka. "The time has come to use my freedom to focus on my passions. I intend to focus on arbitration, both as an attorney and an arbitrator. I am lucky enough to hand over the rudder to Michal Pawlowski, the most suitable person for this role. The new managing partner is an excellent lawyer and an exceptional person. I am confident about the future of the firm, because he is at the helm. I, on the other hand, have been granted the title of Senior Partner and I intend to continue my involvement in the most important matters of the law firm."
Pawlowski expressed his confidence about his new role. "As the new Managing Partner of K&L Gates Jamka sp.k., I am grateful to Maciej Jamka for proposing my candidature and to my partners for voting in favor of its adoption. I’m taking over the management of the law firm from an exceptional leader who has built an excellent organization. I will certainly continue to take advantage of Maciej's advice and I hope that I will be able to contribute to the further development of the firm. I have always believed that the game we play is a team game. That is why I am asking all my colleagues (lawyers and administrative staff of all levels) to support me in my new role. I plan to continue working for clients as a corporate partner. Clients have always been and always will be the most important to me, and nothing has changed in this respect."
