Effective April 1, 2019, Wolf Theiss Poland Co-Managing Partner Ron Given will assume the newly-created role as Wolf Theiss's U.S. Representative.

In a firm press release, Wolf Theiss declared that "by establishing this prestigious function, Wolf Theiss emphasizes the importance of the US market for the firm. Wolf Theiss will not be practicing law outside of its 13 jurisdictions, but making available, at a closer proximity and a more convenient time zone, someone of Ron Given's stature, experience and CEE/SEE knowledge, particularly to the firm's referring law firms and their clients, which will be a real added value."

Following a long career with a U.S.–based international law firm and several years as the general counsel of a listed insurance holding company, Given spent over ten years as a partner with Wolf Theiss, practicing law and managing in Zagreb, Prague, Kyiv, and Warsaw. Several months ago, Given announced that he would be returning to the United States (as reported by CEE Legal Matters in an interview with Given on February 11, 2019). He will be replaced as Co-Managing Partner of the Wolf Theiss office in Warsaw by Tomasz Stasiak, the head of the office's Real Estate and Construction practice group. Fellow Co-Managing Partner Peter Daszkowski retains that role.

"It's great to return to my home in Chicago and still to be able to contribute in a very meaningful way to Wolf Theiss' practice," commented Given. "And it's also great to leave Warsaw in such good hands. Peter Daszkowski and I recruited Tomasz Stasiak and have worked with him very closely with just this result in mind."

Claus Schneider, a member of Wolf Theiss's Management Board, explained that "the U.S. Representative role has been one of our desired initiatives for some time and we very much appreciate Ron's willingness to take up the challenge," and added that "this is a service offering we consider unique among the region's independent law firms."
