Former Path Law Hatylak Kielian i Wspolnicy Partners Tomasz Hatylak, Sergiusz Kielian, and Dominika Mizielinska have joined Baker Tilly Legal Poland in September 2023 together with their 12-member team.
According to Baker Tilly, the 15-member team of experts specializes in advising wealthy individual and corporate clients, Corporate/M&A advisory, and support in the area of investment funds and capital markets, and will join the firm's Warsaw office. "Integrating legal and tax advice for private clients is a way to meet the high expectations of a demanding clientele and an element of competitive advantage in the professional services market," Baker Tilly announced.
Path Law Hatylak Kielian and Partners was itself the product of a December 2021 merger between Path Augustyniak Hatylak and Partners and Kielian and Partners (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 25, 2022).

He started his career with Dewey Ballantine Grzesiak in 2001.
Kielian is a transactional and business lawyer focusing on M&A, PE, and VC transactions. He spent almost two years with Path Law, having joined them in late 2021. Before that, he spent nine years heading Kielian & Partners, between 2013 and 2021. Earlier, he spent over 12 years with Gide, where he made Senior Associate.
Mizielinska advises on corporate and corporate finance transactions including takeovers and corporate restructuring. She spent almost seven years as a Partner with Path Law, between 2017 and 2023. Earlier, she had spent another seven with K&L Gates Jamka, as an Of Counsel, following a 15-year period with Hogan & Hartson Jamka, where she made Senior Associate. She started out with Beata Gessel Radca Prawny in 1994 as a Junior Lawyer.
"We want our clients’ problems to be solved comprehensively, professionally, and in every dimension necessary from their point of view," Baker Tilly Legal Poland Managing Partner Grzegorz Gajda commented. "The expansion of our team, and thus the service portfolio of our law firm, will make this fully possible. I am very much looking forward to this cooperation, congratulate my colleagues and wish them good luck."
