According to Tomasz Zalewski, Managing Partner of Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland, “the development of compliance advisory services is one of the key elements in the strategy of both the Warsaw office and Eversheds Sutherland as a whole. This is a response to the constantly growing demand of clients who are increasingly aware of the great value of a well-functioning compliance system in the context of business risk minimization, the rapidly growing number of regulations, and increasingly demanding regulators. The practice provides multidisciplinary advice in many areas of law covering all compliance requirements. We support clients in connection with the challenges resulting from the rapidly changing legal and business environment and operations in the digital world. We have the pleasure of working for leading entities from regulated sectors. I am glad that thanks to such an experienced specialist, we will be able to significantly expand the offer of advisory services for the financial sector, which continues to set standards for compliance.”
Pawel Stykowski added: “Financial institutions will have to deal with the next regulatory tsunami. They need the specialized advice of professionals knowledgeable of the specifics of their industry. I am excited that along with the team from Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland, known for outstanding experience working for the financial sector, we will be even better able to meet our clients’ needs.”
