This May, Karolina Kanclerz, attorney at law, and her Team joins forces with Paruch Chruściel Schiffter (PCS) as a Partner running the Wrocław Office.

PCS’ presence in Wrocław is a well-awaited response to the growing demand from Clients in Wrocław and the whole Dolnośląskie region. Karolina, the other PCS Partners and their teams’ combined experience, as well as an extended PCS structure create a unique opportunity for PCS Clients to get assistance at the local level in a Wrocław office.

Karolina has been providing legal services to Clients from Wrocław and the Dolnośląskie region for many years. Clients and PCS Partners really value Karolina’s success in combining interdisciplinary experience with a business-like attitude to managed cases. She provides comprehensive support in HR and compliance matters, including restructuring, hiring and dismissal at the senior level. Thanks to her long experience in litigation, Karolina can smoothly navigate Clients through workplace bullying and discrimination investigation procedure.

“Paying heed to our Clients’ requests, we decided to open yet another, fifth, PSC office. The choice of location was by no means accidental. We provide legal advice to numerous Clients from Wrocław and Dolnośląskie region on a day-to-day basis. We are overjoyed that a leading specialist in employment law, who thoroughly knows and understands the nature and needs of local businesses, will head the Wrocław office. A telling fact is that all current PCS Partners have worked with Karolina for many years. It appears that our professional paths have parted for a few years only to meet up again to build PCS together.” – says Sławomir Paruch, a founding PCS Partner.

For many years Karolina has been associated with Sołtysiński Kawecki & Szlęzak, where she has had the opportunity to work with all PCS Partners.
