Former DLA Piper Poland Country Managing Partner Krzysztof Wiater, who left that firm in July of this year, has opened a new law firm in Warsaw: NGL Legal.

Wiater, who had been Country Managing Partner at DLA Piper Poland since the office opened in 2007, will lead the office. Other NGL Legal Partners include Magdalena Zwolinska, Grzegorz Godlewski, Maciej Wesolowski, Filip Opoka, and Bartosz Sankiewicz.

According to an NGL Legal press release, "In August 2018 Krzysztof opened NGL Legal – a new law firm with an ambition to become a center of legal services of the new generation in CEE/Baltics and globally, through a network of trusted partners. NGL Legal supports clients with legal and tax advisory combined with substantive knowledge and deep understanding of business consulting as well as selected sectors of the economy. NGL Legal is an open partnership with a team of new generation of experienced lawyers, who actively build expertise matching their individual interests. Idea behind is to develop experts with knowledge beyond legal, ensure lawyers are driven by passion and deliver spot on advice to clients."

According to that press release, the firm's independence is an asset: "CEE is diversified and quality of service varies, depending on exposure to experiences and breadth of practice. In each of the CEE countries top lawyers from sectors and practices may work with different law firms. Understanding this specific was key to creating our hybrid cooperation model with partners in CEE/Baltics and with global law firms. The idea behind was to offer clients an easy, independent access to top law practitioners, verified in their expertise, which ensures that top lawyers in their fields are working on the case, without limitation of operating under one brand. Cooperation with global partners allows us to support projects with international reach. All our partners operate independently, under their own brand and with direct contact with your team and NGL Legal is an integrator and your single point of contact."
