Przemek Kastyak, Partner
Beginning in 2002, Przemek joined the team as a student. He was immediately impressed with what he saw, his colleagues’ professionalism, and the great atmosphere.
I was surprised by the speed with which I was given more responsibility. As well as doing the usual court runs, I began working directly with clients pretty quickly.
The firm appreciated Przemek’s eagerness to work hard, learn on the job, and be a real part of the team.
After about six months, I got the chance to work on a case, and I was able to recover a large sum of money from a debtor for a Swedish client in only a matter of days. I couldn’t believe it, and neither could the team! I was so proud.
Whilst working on a whole range of cases – from IT contracts to complex disputes – Przemek found his passion in real estate and began to specialise in construction.
What I loved about construction – and still love – is that it requires both legal skills but also a really high level of technical expertise.
A real benchmark for Przemek came when he was entrusted with tackling a huge construction investment project on his own. He did it to great success. Now a partner – a reward for his hard work, loyalty and exceptional business skills – Przemek heads up his own team of dedicated construction lawyers.
Gosia Rudzińska, Office Manager
Gosia joined a very small team at a time of uncertainty but also great hope when the firm was just beginning its exciting story. Who could have known that she would become an integral part of the team?
I had been working in the District Court in Warsaw so moving to a private company seemed really risky as there were not many private companies operating at that time in Poland.
The firm was in its infancy and it was very much a time of ‘all hands on deck’ in order to be successful. Gosia played a key part in building the firm from scratch.
I started off working the reception as well as being a secretary to Mr Tokaj and the other lawyers. I was responsible for buying office supplies, food, and I also did some cooking now and again!
Gosia has been with the team from the very beginning and now holds the key position of Office Manager coordinating, organising, and managing all secretarial and admin staff in the office.
I think the biggest thing I have learnt are my technical skills in accounting, HR, and managing people, but also the fact that you can always learn so much from your colleagues and workmates.
Magda Łobejko, Marketing Coordinator
Magda began her adventure with us in 2009. Full of fresh ideas, hopes and energy, she came to the firm as a temporary twelve-month appointment.
I remember walking through the door and thinking ‘will I manage?’ I had some really big shoes to fill and I had never worked with lawyers before. They took a chance on me, and I wasn’t going to let them down.
Not only did Magda not let anyone down, she blossomed in her ‘temporary’ role becoming skilled in the intricacies of the legal world. Soon, she became a familiar figure to all. After mastering her role in the firm’s administration, Magda was offered a role in the Marketing Department.
I was euphoric! After knocking on the door and asking for a chance to develop, another opening came up and the firm decided to promote from within. Once again, I was given a chance, and I took it with open arms wanting to show everyone that I could learn this role as well.
Magda’s professional attitude and infectious character has made her a popular figure. She has proven that with real hard work, grit, and positive energy anything can be achieved.
Iga Piotrowska, Senior Associate
After working in several firms, Iga made the permanent jump from in-house to law firm lawyer when she joined the team in 2017.
I was pretty anxious as I was joining a team of people who knew each other really well and worked great together as a team. I was convinced it would be hard to fit in, but I could have not been more wrong. I was made to feel so welcome from the very first day.
Iga got the chance to prove herself and was engaged in her interest areas of retail and real estate while cooperating with clients on negotiating new lease agreements and analyzing already concluded agreements.
As well as the day-to-day issues that all lawyers must do, I’ve also been involved in real estate projects involving due diligence and renegotiating lease agreements due to the pandemic. Complicated stuff.
Iga was most impressed with the professionalism and motivation of the team around her and the way partners were able to maintain relations and build trust with clients who continue to grow together with the law firm.
I would highlight the fact that when joining Penteris, you’re joining a long-term project where you are given the chance to build your career from scratch in a friendly, relaxed environment where there are perspectives for growth.
