Recruitment: Perren Buildings welcomes Polish specialist Mikolaj Pietrzak
Monday, January 3rd 2011
Perren Buildings have announced today that Mikołaj Pietrzak has agreed to join the International Division of chambers. Mikolaj is a Polish lawyer who specializes in business crime and human rights law and has been involved in many trans-jurisdictional criminal cases between Poland and other European Union member states or the United States of America.

Mikolaj Pietrzak has acted as counsel in such cases as:

·     the criminal investigation regarding the detention and torture of Abd al-Rahim Al-Nashiri in the alleged CIA prison in Poland.

·     the precedent setting European Arrest Warrant case of Adam. G, involving Belgium and Poland,

·     the case involving corruption charges brought against Beata Sawicka, a prominent Polish Member of Parliament,

Mikołaj Pietrzak has postgraduate qualifications in law from the University of Warsaw and from Cambridge University. He is fluent in Polish and English and proficient in French. He has been a member of the Warsaw Advocate’s Chamber since 2001 and a member of the Warsaw Advocate’s Council since 2010.

His domestic practice in Poland has involved tax crime for individuals and companies, as well as disciplinary offences against professionals and politicians. He has appeared regularly as an advocate before the Supreme Court of Poland and the Constitutional Tribunal of Poland and has also represented many applicants before the European Court of Human Rights.

Commenting on the appointment, Jo Cooper said “Mikolaj’s experience adds greatly to the strength of our international section. As well as providing greater geographical coverage for our chambers, Mikolaj’s human rights work—especially in the Al-Nashiri case— is highly relevant to litigation currently being brought from the UK and US. We look forward to working closely together”.
