The largest merger on the Polish legal services market in recent years is here. Rymarz Zdort and Maruta Wachta are to operate as one law firm under the name Rymarz Zdort Maruta. The unprecedented merger of the firms, each a leader in its own respective areas of the legal market, will result in the enhancement of the already top-notch legal services provided by the two law firms, which services will be adapted to the challenges posed by a changing world, as well as market and economic realities. The merged law firm will comprise 30 partners and more than 170 lawyers, a total of 250 people.
“I am very enthusiastic about the cooperation between our teams, whose competence, enthusiasm and energy guarantee the success of our joint venture. I am confident that the clients of both companies will benefit from this merger.” – says Paweł Rymarz, Managing Partner at Rymarz Zdort.
Rymarz Zdort is best known for its M&A, restructuring, private equity and financial markets practices, while Maruta Wachta is a leader in new technology law. Both law firms have established strong positions over many years in the market in Poland and Europe and have set the highest standards for legal services based on client feedback, as reflected in the leading positions of both firms in Polish and international legal rankings.
“This is a strategic move for us. By merging with Rymarz Zdort, we have the opportunity to gain new competencies and significantly strengthen our team. Our law firms are not only leaders in their respective fields, but we also have a shared understanding of the work of a lawyer in the third decade of the 21st century. We want to not only be lawyers, but also advisors, helping in the digital transformation of our clients.” – says Marcin Maruta, Managing Partner at Maruta Wachta.
“Our passion for law does not allow us to sit idle. We continually try to keep up with our clients’ needs and do things that no one in this market has yet dared to do. I am very happy that Marcin, Bartek and the other partners, as well as the rest of Maruta Wachta’s lawyers, have decided to embark on this remarkable journey with us. I am confident that together we will create many more innovations for our clients that may surprise our competitors… and perhaps we may even surprise ourselves.” – says Paweł Zdort, Managing Partner at Rymarz Zdort.
Rymarz Zdort and Maruta Wachta have adopted an equal partnership model as the basis for the merger. The official merger of the two law firms will take place at the beginning of 2023. The headquarters of the new law firm will be the existing offices of Rymarz Zdort, located at Prosta 18 in Warsaw.
“There are many exciting aspects of this merger, the most important one being offering unparalleled comprehensive services, both in terms of knowledge base and organisation. The fusion of our strengths, on the one hand, opens up new opportunities as has been mentioned by the managing partners of the respective firms, and on the other hand, is in itself an unprecedented event in the history of the Polish legal market. I am very happy that my professional path has led me to this place.” – concludes Bartłomiej Wachta, Managing Partner at Maruta Wachta.
