GESSEL Attorneys at Law is 9,000-plus days of intense work to your benefit, untold numbers of successes – small and large – in negotiations, hundreds of M&A deals, litigations and arbitrations, capital market transactions and due diligence studies, and 100 employees – including 60 lawyers – led by 12 partners. But, first and foremost, GESSEL is you – our Clients.

On 5 June, we held a gala event celebrating the 25th anniversary of our firm. This was a special evening – for many reasons, chief among them the fact that many of you honoured us with your presence.

We take this opportunity to thank you for all the kind wishes, also the ones received from Colleagues, Clients and Friends who were not in attendance, but remain with us in spirit.

As we embark on our next quarter century of operations, we draw strength from the awareness that the relationships built up with you over the years are solid – that you trust us and value our support. This is a source of pride for us, and a point of reference in our future work.

Marcin Macieszczak, GESSEL’s managing partner, remarked during the gala that “the success of our firm is the success of our entire team”. True as that may be, this isn’t the whole picture – we also owe our success to the trust which you vest in us.

To cite the neon-lit installation which guests to our offices pass on their way in, “Things will get better and better yet”. We wish this for all of us, you included!
