The Penteris Law Firm — the 50-strong team previously operating as the Warsaw office of Magnusson — has opened for business on the Polish market.
The launch follows, as promised, several months after the office announced that it would be leaving multi-national Magnusson and would continue operations under a new brand as of January 1, 2020 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on October 25, 2019).
According to a Penteris press release, the firm "provides full-service business law advice within five sector lines: Energy & natural resources, Financial institutions, Private equity, Real estate, and Retail."
"Inspired by the Greek 'Pente' for five," Penteris Managing Partner Agnieszka Pytlas said, explaining the new name, "Penteris upholds five core values: (1) getting things done, (2) being prepared to stand out, (3) building long-term relations, (4) serving as a gateway, and (5) going where eagles dare. These five values are our promise to clients, which we call the Penteris Pledge."
"On the market since 2001, we were originally part of a Scandinavian law firm and then a founding office of a pan-Baltic organization," adds Senior Partner Andrzej Tokaj. "Launching under a new brand marks the opening of yet another chapter in our story. This move unlocks our potential as an independent practice, broadening domestic capabilities and opening up new paths of international cooperation with those who best match our clients' cross-border needs."
