By establishing this prestigious function, Wolf Theiss emphasises the importance of the US market for the firm. Wolf Theiss will not be practicing law outside of its 13 jurisdictions, but making available, at a closer proximity and a more convenient time zone, someone of Ron Given's stature, experience and CEE/SEE knowledge, particularly to the firm's referring law firms and their clients, which will be a real added value.
As Ron Given will be stepping down from his current role as the Co-Managing Partner of the Wolf Theiss office in Warsaw, Tomasz Stasiak, the head of the office's Real Estate and Construction practice group, will team up with Peter Daszkowski as Co-Managing Partner of Wolf Theiss Warsaw.
"It's great to return to my home in Chicago and still to be able to contribute in a very meaningful way to Wolf Theiss' practice," commented Ron Given. "And it's also great to leave Warsaw in such good hands. Peter Daszkowski and I recruited Tomasz Stasiak and have worked with him very closely with just this result in mind".
Claus Schneider of the firm's Management Board noted: "The U.S. Representative role has been one of our desired initiatives for some time and we very much appreciate Ron's willingness to take up the challenge", adding that "this is a service offering we consider unique among the region's independent law firms".
Following a long career with a U.S.–based international law firm and several years as the general counsel of a listed insurance holding company, Ron Given spent over 10 years as a partner with Wolf Theiss, practicing law and managing in Zagreb, Prague, Kyiv and Warsaw.
