Venner Shipley elects new Managing Partner

We are delighted to announce that Pawel Piotrowicz has been elected as Venner Shipley’s new Managing Partner from 1 July 2021.

Pawel will take over from Jan Walaski, who has served as Managing Partner since 2015. During Jan’s time as Managing Partner, the firm has continued to grow, not just in size, but in the range of services offered, and in its ambitions, adding a legal team and enhancing its German offering, as well as expanding the trade marks team through a merger with Brookes IP.

Pawel Piotrowicz commented: “I would like to thank Jan for his tenure as Managing Partner. It’s a privilege to take over from him and continue to take the firm from strength to strength. Our business strategy has been paying dividends despite the global pandemic, which brought an entirely new set of  challenges. Although the pandemic is not yet behind us, our focus has always been on helping our clients thrive, even in times of change, through excellent service, innovative approaches, and drive to deliver the best results; this focus puts us in a strong position. Venner Shipley is a great firm full of fantastic people, and I’m honoured and grateful that the partnership has placed its trust in me.”
