Jara Drapala & Partners has announced that Magdalena Zasiewska has joined the firm as Head of Tax.
Zasiewska, according to JD&P, is "a tax adviser with over twenty years of practice, including at companies from the Great Four, previously employed as a director at PWC." The firm describes her as "an expert on Polish and international tax law," and says that "she has advised on business restructuring and M&A processes. She was also involved in tax proceedings of Polish and foreign companies. Her clients included entities from key sectors of the economy, such as the energy sector, commerce, real estate and FMCG. She is the author of numerous Polish and foreign publications and editor of the commentary to the OECD model agreement on avoiding double taxation. She is also a Member of the National Council of Tax Advisers in its current term."
"By commencing cooperation with Magdalena Zasiewska," commented JD&P Managing Partner Zbigniew Jara. "We want to bring attention to the Tax Team at our Law Firm and put more emphasis on providing complementary tax advisory services."
News of Zasiewska's joining JD&P was accompanied by news of four other additions as well: Three lawyers (Associate Piotr Duma and Junior Associates Artur Krepa and Iwo Franaszczyk) joined the firm's Court and Arbitration Proceedings Team, while Junior Associate Aleksandra Cichecka joined the firm's Company Law Team.
"The decision to welcome five new people to our firm was based on the continuous, dynamic increase in the number and weight of commissioned cases, and thus on the law firm’s development, primarily when it comes to three main teams: Company Law, Court and Arbitration Proceedings, and Tax," said Jara. "We have ambitious plans for the future. For this reason, I am happy that we are entering the new year as a team, stronger and even more determined to continue our success story."
