"New partner promotions in JDP show that not only do we create the best environment for our lawyers to develop and be promoted, but also, in fact, promote our lawyers," Managing Partner Przemyslaw Drapala commented. "The lawyers promoted this year have proved that they have the expertise and experience necessary to lead a team and handle complex projects. This is also confirmed by our key clients’ trust they have earned. We will continue to support the development of talented and committed lawyers in our law firm based on transparent rules. This is an important element of our strategy."
