Former Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland Counsel Pawel Stykowski has joined DWF in Warsaw as Local Partner and Head of Insurance.

Stykowski headed the financial services and compliance practice at Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland. He has 13 years of experience providing legal advice to the insurance and banking industry, including four years as head of legal/compliance officer at the InterRisk insurance company (during which time he was interviewed in the CEE Legal Matters magazine). He also spent five years with CMS and two and a half years in-house with the AXA Group. According to DWF, "he regularly acts for clients in proceedings before the Polish Financial Supervision Authority, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, the General Inspector of Financial Information, the Financial Ombudsman and the courts."

DWF Poland Managing Partner Michał Pawlowski said: "We are delighted to welcome Pawel to the expanding DWF team in Poland. His vast expertise in the insurance sector will provide us with the ideal platform from which to strengthen our insurance offering in Warsaw."

"It is an exciting time to join the business given DWF's expansion into Poland earlier this year," commented Stykowski. "Insurance is one of DWF's primary business sectors and the business enjoys an international reputation for its innovative approach to legal services in the insurance sphere. I am therefore looking forward to playing an important role in developing our global capabilities further for the benefit of our Polish clients."
