Why it makes sense to join Gawroński & Partners and how to do it?
Gawroński & Partners is a boutique law firm focused on technology, disputes and regulations.
We are building our practice based on experience and reputation of our partners. We are striving to create a “modern law firm” in relation both as to how we advise our clients and as to internal dynamics of our team.
Members of our team point that partners have deep practical knowledge of specialized areas such as IT, cybersecurity, privacy and data protection, cloud computing, e-commerce, anti-money laundering, banking law, financial regulations, stock exchange, cryptocurrencies, white collar crime, crisis management.
We usually work in “one partner one junior” teams. We drew inspiration to that model not from Star Wars but from one of the most prestigious world law firms – Slaughter & May. “One on one” model accelerates competence growth while preserving quality of advice and risk management. Such approach is possible thanks to a high degree of trust between our Clients and partners of the firm and thanks to the principle of partner responsibility.
In our daily work we separate professional matters from general communication. Thanks to that approach we are able to maintain a collegial, relaxed atmosphere. We have also implemented a so called error-accepting culture ..sometimes with pain …and not indefinitely, but still.
At the moment our team consists of individuals identifying themselves as men. However, that is not due to our policy but a pure result of chance. Two years ago most of our team consisted of individuals identifying themselves as women. We encourage female lawyers to apply as we would like to bring more balance and diversity to our small team.
Working at GP you participate in exciting matters, intellectual and organizational challenges. We conduct matters exceeding PLN one billion, rarely under one million. Contrary to global law firms we are not „conflicting out” and we can run interesting disputes against global firms. We provide effective project crisis management (our role model is Mr Wolf from “Pulp Fiction”). We support our Clients decision making process. Our work does not lack adrenaline. But it lacks time. The two values most important to us are reaction time and communication. Optimizing communication takes time. However, it its time that is most important to our Clients.
Best way to learn something is to start to teach. In GP you may easily become a contributor to a book, run a webinar or become a lecturer. Each of our partners edited a book after joining GP. Our “Guide to the GDPR” became a Polish bestseller and it has been published in English.
Our firm grows organically. We encourage you to grow with us.
Partner: “Please describe “rescission” as an institution of the Polish Civil Code””
Candidate: “I do not see a reason to ask me merit questions at this conversation”.
Partner: “So I do not see a reason to continue this conversation”.
Next, at gowork.pl a new review appears, according to which “Mr G acts like a March Hare”. We would like to spare you and us similar experiences.
We value candidates who know the law. In particular the Polish Civil Code and the Polish Code of Commercial Companies. Then codes of procedures (civil procedure, criminal procedure, administrative procedure). However, first and foremost we value persons who are capable of fast learning and are not afraid of learning things they do not know. We will teach them communication and the application of law.
That is why we are redefining our recruitment process. We would like to incorporate agile tests (cognitive and language abilities, typing, personal tests, and maybe even …legal knowledge tests). We will keep you updated of the process.
Should you be interested in joining us, feel free to send us you bio any time at our general contact email or directly to our partners on LinkedIn.
