27 July saw the official announcement of the results of what is the 18th ranking of law firms compiled by the Rzeczpospolita daily. We are proud to announce that GESSEL has received an award in the Pro Bono category.

From its very inception, GESSEL has been a proud supporter of initiatives in the realm of modern art, education, and – generally – the public good (for more about our pro bono work, please see HERE). Accordingly, this award is a source of special pride for us. We humbly accept it as recognition of the selfless work of our lawyers – Dr Beata Gessel-Kalinowska vel Kalisz, Senior Partner and founder not only of our firms, but also of foundations dedicated to supporting the National Museum in Warsaw and the Zachęta National Gallery, Joanna Kisielińska-Garncarek, Maria Dudzińska, Aldona Pietrzak, Michał Boryczka, Maciej Boryczko, Michał Bochowicz, Marta Grabiec, Krzysztof Jasiński, Marcin Maciejak, Karolina Olszewska, Piotr Tracz, and Erazm Dutkiewicz, among others. 

The ranking of law firms by the Rzeczpospolita daily has become a highlight in the annual calendar of the Polish legal circles. This year is a special one, not necessarily in a good way – due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers had to forego a traditional awards ceremony, settling for an online event which you can view here
