Sołtysiński Kawecki & Szlęzak announces the appointment of a new Managing Partner. As of 1 January 2024, Dr Marcin Olechowski replaced Robert Gawałkiewicz, who was SK&S Managing Partner for 7 years before deciding to conclude his position at the end of 2023. Having said that, Robert Gawałkiewicz will not only continue to support the management of the law firm as a member of its Management Committee, but he will also maintain the corporate law and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) practices.

Dr Marcin Olechowski joined SK&S in 1995 and since 2007 has been the partner in charge of the firm’s Banking and Finance practice. He is an attorney-at-law and, as a highly experienced practitioner in the regulation of financial services and institutions, is a long-standing member of the firm’s Management Committee, with extensive experience in financial and M&A transactions as well as in international arbitration.

“I would like to thank SK&S Partners for the trust they have shown by appointing me to the position of Managing Partner. The firm is in excellent condition, for which I owe my sincere gratitude to my colleague Robert Gawałkiewicz”, says Dr Marcin Olechowski. “Thanks to Robert’s vision, commitment and example, the last seven years have been a period of steady growth and success for SK&S. I look forward to working together with our talented group of partners and lawyers to continue pursuing these successes, so that we consistently remain at the forefront of the market through continued competence development, consistently high quality client service and openness to new technologies”.

Robert Gawałkiewicz, attorney-at-law and former Managing Partner at SK&S, added: “I believe that the experience, competence and knowledge of my colleague Dr Marcin Olechowski will be very useful and valuable for the further development of our firm. I believe that under his leadership SK&S will strengthen and consolidate its position as one of the leading law firms in the legal services market.”
