We are happy to announce that as of 1 January 2019, Urszula Darkowska, attorney-at-law, and Jacek Olma, attorney-at-law, joined the group of GWW Legal partners.
Urszula and Jacek were promoted from the position of a junior partner, which they took at the beginning of 2018. Expanding the group of partners and granting the status of a junior partner to associates collaborating for many years with GWW Legal is the effect of the Integrated System of Evaluation and Promotion that has been implemented in GWW structures for over four years, which aims at rewarding and promoting the best associates GWW. Profiles of the new partners are briefly presented below.
Urszula Darkowska is a legal counsel specializing in conducting court proceedings in civil and commercial cases. She represents clients of the law firm from the telecommunications, railway and energy industries in complex court and arbitration disputes related to their activities. She is also involved in litigation regarding copyright infringements, including providing consultancy to clients in disputes with collecting societies. Urszula Darkowska has been cooperating with GWW since 2006, being member of the Litigation Department since 2006, and since 2016 she has been managing the GWW litigation practice in Warsaw.
Jacek Olma is a legal counsel professionally involved in resolving disputes – in particular in court but also with alternative dispute resolution methods. One of the most interesting projects he was in charge of was the pursuit of claims related to defective nationalization, including compensation and settlement of receivables due to the use of real estate. The case ended with success and satisfaction of clients. He has been cooperating with GWW since 2009.
We would like to congratulate them and wish them fulfillment in their new role, as well as further successes in professional careers.
