Dentons Partners Anna Pukszto and Bartlomiej Kordeczka have been elected the new Poland Co-Managing Partners following a vote of the Partners in Warsaw. They take over from Arkadiusz Krasnodebski, who stepped down after serving as Managing Partner in Poland since 2014.
According to the firm, “Pukszto is widely recognized as a leading lawyer in litigation, restructuring, and insolvency. She heads Dentons’ Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy practice as well as the Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice in Warsaw.” She has been with the firm since 2008. Earlier, she spent seven years with Dentons' legacy firm Salans as an Associate and, before that, a year with Leszek Zgutka.
Kordeczka, the Co-Lead of the Real Estate team in Warsaw, has been with the firm since 2012, joining as a Lawyer and making Partner in 2017. Prior to that, he spent four years with Linklaters.
“We are entering the next decade of the Dentons brand in Poland and need to focus on bringing innovative ideas to enhance our client relationships and address the needs of the next generation of professionals,” said Pukszto and Kordeczka.
“I warmly welcome Anna and Bartlomiej and look forward to partnering with them as we continue to advance our clients’ opportunities in Poland and beyond,” Dentons Global Chief Executive Officer Elliott Portnoy commented.
“I am delighted that these two exceptional partners, who are respected for their many years of excellent work for our clients, have agreed to lead our firm in Poland,” Dentons Europe Chief Executive Officer Tomasz Dabrowski added. “At the same time, I would like to thank Arkadiusz Krasnodebski, for his leadership over the last nine years.”
“Having worked with Ania and Bartek for many years, I am convinced that as Co-managing Partners, they will bring a fresh outlook to our business, while exemplifying the reliability and competency which our clients have come to expect from Dentons," Krasnodebski commented.
