The Traple Konarski Podrecki & Wspólnicy Law Firm was created from a law office set up in 1993 by Professor Elżbieta Traple, Ph.D., attorney at law, who was joined in 1999 by partner Xawery Konarski, attorney at law, and subsequently by partner Paweł Podrecki, Ph.D., attorney at law. In 2006 the Warsaw office was opened. In 2009 Beata Matusiewicz-Kulig, attorney at law and Tomasz Targosz, Ph.D., attorney at law joined the partners team, followed two years later by Jan Byrski, Ph.D., attorney at law and Wojciech Kulis, attorney at law. In 2016, Agnieszka Schoen, attorney-at-law, Anna Sokołowska-Ławniczak, PhD, patent attorney, Agnieszka Wachowska, legal advisor, and Rafał Klimek, legal advisor, became our partners.
The Firm is now made up of more than 60 lawyers, include attorneys at law, legal advisors, doctors of law, patent attorneys, bar trainees, Ph.D. students and junior lawyers. The Firm’s team has been selected taking into account their practical skills and theoretical knowledge of the law, fluency in foreign languages and professional experience gained during apprenticeships and fellowships abroad.
The Firm, on a regular basis, provides legal assistance to both Polish and foreign businesses operating across a wide spectrum of sectors, as well as to public entities.
