We are getting better! This year, MKZ Partners were located 15 points higher than in 2018 on the list of law firms – arranged in terms of number of attorneys and legal advisers – in the Ranking of Law Firms published today by Rzeczpospolita. We are at 101 position
According to the authors, this year the record was broken when it comes to the number of law firms participating in the ranking. – 318 law firms from all over Poland have applied. We calculated that all companies employ nearly 8,000 lawyers. The vast majority competed – as in previous years – with the number of advocates and legal advisers and with the number of lawyers in general. However, some of them applied to a completely new classification, in which the number of lawyers employed did not matter at all – summarizes Dorota Gajos-Kaniewska in “Rzeczpospolita”.
Tomasz Pietryga, head of the Legal Department of “Rzeczpospolita”, noticed that “the economic situation means that the offices are doing well. They not only develop their competences in traditional areas, but also discover new ones”. MKZ Partners are also moving with the times. Recently we have gained Clients from the IT and technology industry, we advise the creators of start-ups, we deal with e-commerce, we support and participate in creating the largest online stores in Poland, from the luxury goods and book market segment. We serve carriers and freight forwarders. We have also been very well assessed in the audit of a large automotive company as RODO specialists.
In this year’s Ranking of Law Firms we have also been promoted in terms of the total number of lawyers – for position 118, we have as much as 23 points more compared to 141 position last year. We currently cooperate with 19 lawyers; 10 years ago we started with 3 people. On the 10th anniversary of our law office, we can enjoy a stable position on the market and a team of reliable specialists. Recently, Gabriela Kazuch, an experienced tax advisor joined us.
