Former DWF Partner Rafal Morek has joined CMS's dispute resolution team in Poland as Partner, along with Jan Markiewicz as Counsel and Andrzej Girdwoyn as Associate.

Morek, who will head the CMS Arbitration team, had been with DWF Poland since May 2019, when DWF took over K&L Gates' office in Warsaw (reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 2, 2019).

Morek first joined K&L Gates in 2010. Before that, he was an Advocate with Hogan & Hartson between 2008 and 2010 and a Junior Lawyer with Dewey Ballantine between 2002 and 2004.

"The experience and track record which Rafal, Jan, and Andrzej contribute to the firm will strengthen our position on the market," commented Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution practice at CMS Poland Anna Cudna-Wagner. "It will also open up new opportunities for us in arbitration and construction and infrastructural advice. We seek constantly to develop our Dispute Resolution practice, and more lawyers will be joining us soon."
