Employees about VON ZANTHIER & DACHOWSKI
Karolina Barałkiewicz - Sokal
Partner, Attorney at law (PL)
Working for VON ZANTHIER & DACHOWSKI is the realization of my dreams and professional goals. I still feel and know that a lot of new and good things are ahead of me. I never wanted to work in an international corporation, but I wanted a medium-sized law firm with the possibility to work with German- and English-speaking clients. The team of the law firm is made up of ambitious people who set interesting goals for themselves, and at the same time are open and friendly - this creates a good atmosphere and mutual respect, and gives great opportunities for professional development.
Paula Staszak-Urbańska, LL.M.
Trainee attorney-at-law (PL)
The law firm VON ZANTHIER & DACHOWSKI is characterised by openness to changes, to the ideas of employees, to listening to their opinions on a given subject. It is a place filled with family and friendly atmosphere. A team full of energy and new ideas. Competitive salaries, which increase along with the employee's qualifications.
Dr. jur. Jan Muszyński
Attorney at law (PL)
VON ZANTHIER & DACHOWSKI is a place where I learn, work and meet nice people. It is a company with a good, casual atmosphere, i.e. distance, "no stupid questions" attitude, no dress code, but with a lot of support - you will never be left alone with the topic. Interesting in-house training and a competitive, motivating salary are not insignificant.
Finance and Accounting Specialist
I feel that I am fulfilling myself at work, that I am doing something important for the development of the firm, and at the same time it is happening without detriment to my private life. Work is a significant part of our lives, that is why it is so important to spend this time with people you like and respect, in a pleasant, almost family-like atmosphere, enjoying what you do, and that is how it is with us.
