Advocate Urszula Podhalańska distinguished in the “Rising Stars. Lawyers – Leaders of Tomorrow 2015” ranking
The jury of the competition recognized, in particular, advocate Urszula Podhalańska’s experience in conducting cases concerning the application of the European Arrest Warrant (EAW). Advocate Urszula Podhalańska has so far conducted 25 such cases in the majority of which her engagement resulted in the repeal of EAW or discontinuation of proceedings.
Advocate Urszula Podhalańska has been with the Pietrzak Sidor & Partners Law Firm since 2011. In 2013, she became a partner. Apart from criminal cases, she handles cases regarding criminal economic law, crimes against safety in communication and cases connected to medical errors. She cooperates pro bono with Greenpeace Poland and engages in cases which the law firm conducts at the request of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights.
“I have been following the development of advocate Urszula Podhalańska’s career with admiration,” says advocate Mikołaj Pietrzak. “Having observed Ula at work, I am jealous of two things – the incredible composure with which she handles cases and acts in court and a gratitude letter from a client who was in danger of going to jail for two years as a result of EAW proceedings. Ula won this case and the client’s life and family were not ruined as a result of unfair charges,” says advocate Mikołaj Pietrzek.
This is the second distinction for a lawyer from the Pietrzak Sidor & Partners Law Firm. Last years, advocate Paweł Osik was honoured with the Rising Star title (more information is available here).
Urszula, our congratulations!
