Former Senior Associate Agnieszka Starzynska has been promoted to Counsel at CMS’s Polish office and will head the firm’s Life Sciences and Healthcare Practice.
Starzynska, who has 12 years of experience, specializes in competition and consumer protection law. According to CMS, “in her new role, she will develop the offer of services for clients from the life sciences sector and entities introducing sensitive products, including food and cosmetics (also those containing CBD), and dietary supplements.” According to the firm, Starzynska “successfully advises on competition law issues in mergers and acquisitions, abuse of dominant position, restrictive practices, protection of consumers' collective interests, and acts of unfair competition. An integral part of her professional experience is advising pharmaceutical and medical device companies on legal aspects of clinical trials, product launch, marketing and advertising, product safety and compliance.”
Starzynska has been with CMS since 2009.
The same round of promotions also saw former Senior Associate Adam Jodkowski, from the firm’s dispute resolution team, promoted to Counsel.
“This year's promotions illustrate the high competence of the new counsels and our strategy on the Polish market, but above all they are the result of the lawyers themselves seeking their own path of development, actively cooperating with colleagues from other practices and developing contacts with clients," commented Managing Partner of CMS Poland, Andrzej Posniak.
