I am a managing partner in the Polish office and an expert in the legal aspects of financial markets, including regulatory matters, financing transactions, fintech and payment services.

Taking a business-oriented and customer-focused approach to my work, I provide legal services to financial institutions, including public companies and investment funds.

I'm passionate about supporting innovations and new technologies in the financial sector. That's why I try to be as close as possible to this environment and market trends. I cooperate with the FinTech Poland foundation, and The Heart – a corporate innovations centre which leads a consortium developing new technologies in the financial sector. I have worked on many exciting projects, for example I had the pleasure to lead a team that acted as sole legal advisor to the Polish API, the dedicated interface model for fintechs, which complies with the new directive on payment services (PSD2), which was initiated by The Polish Banks Association.

I build strong relationships with clients and partners based on trust and common business targets. This requires listening, creating, and thinking one step ahead at all times. What I enjoy most about my job is the Bird & Bird collaborative approach, and working closely alongside colleagues as part of a bigger team, people who combine passion for what they do professionally and in life.

Prior to joining Bird & Bird I worked in banks and international law firms since 1998.
