Wolf Theiss advises young lawyers on career development

During the Fair (Prawnicze Targi Praktyk i Pracy), which has been held for nine consecutive years in Warsaw, students met Wolf Theiss representatives from different practice groups and gained insight about internship and employment opportunities. The Wolf Theiss team was represented by lawyers Magda Werner, Ron Given, Anna Sękowska, Damian Majda, Paulina Przewoźnik, Joanna Wajdzik, Paweł Wysocki, Marcin Rudnik and Jan Mącior, and business support staff Michał Balcerzak, David Rapalski and Kasia Skawińska. Anna Nykaza, Administration and Events Manager at Wolf Theiss Warsaw, coordinated the firm’s participation in the Fair.

Paulina Przewoźnik, an associate and member of the Employment practice group at Wolf Theiss Warsaw, believes the firm has good recognition among law students. She is the co-coordinator of the firm’s internship program in Poland. “As one of the leading law firms in Central and South Eastern Europe, Wolf Theiss is increasingly on the radar screens of many students seeking work in a challenging international environment,” said Paulina.

Co-coordinating the internship program with Paulina is Damian Majda, an associate and member of the Dispute Resolution practice group at Wolf Theiss. Damian stated, “With operations in the region’s largest economies, Wolf Theiss is the perfect place for commercial lawyers to gain expertise in all areas of legal services while working for international clients on very ambitious and complex projects.”

As part of this year’s Internship Program, Wolf Theiss is holding a contest for students to draft a letter and provide legal advice to a theoretical UK-registered financial-services company seeking to expand its operations in Poland in the midst of Brexit. The winner will receive a paid internship with the law firm. “This contest gives participants the opportunity to show off their legal knowledge and critical thinking skills,” said Klaudia Dąbrowska, who won a similar contest a few years ago. She is now an associate and member of the Banking and Finance practice group at Wolf Theiss Warsaw. “Our student interns are always fully involved in the day-to-day work of our legal teams. While assisting our lawyers with ongoing cases, they are exposed to interesting projects, and have an opportunity to learn about cross-border transactions,” she added.
