DLA Piper has appointed Krzysztof Kycia, Head of Litigation and Arbitration, and Jacek Gizinski, Head of Real Estate, as Co-Managing Partners of the firm's Warsaw office. They replace Krzysztof Wiater, who has held the position for the past 11 years, and who has left the firm.
Gizinski, according to DLA, "advises both domestic and international clients on a wide range of high-profile projects, including complex M&A transactions in the real estate and renewable energy sectors." Kycia, the firm reports, "is a highly experienced litigator and also specializes in alternative dispute resolution. He is particularly strong in the construction, infrastructure and energy sectors."
The two new Co-Managing Partners have both been with DLA Piper in Poland since the office opened in 2007.
"We would like to thank Krzysztof Wiater for his contribution in establishing DLA Piper in Poland and making it one of the leading law firms in the Polish market," Gizinski said. "Krzysztof Kycia and I are proud to take up the challenge of managing the Warsaw office and developing the practice even further, for the benefit of our clients and the firm."
"Jacek and I are delighted to be taking on the Country Managing Partner role together," Kycia added. "Working locally and internationally, we plan to further develop the position and reputation of the Warsaw office in the market. By strengthening our cooperation with colleagues in other jurisdictions and developing client relationships, we will continue to pursue DLA Piper's strategy of being the leading global business law firm."
