Four Counsel in Dentons' Czech Republic and Poland offices have been promoted to Partner in the firm's recent global promotion round.
In Prague, Daniel Hurych, the Co-head of Dentons’ Banking & Finance Group, joined the firm’s partnership. According to Dentons, Hurych "advises leading domestic and European banks on financing transactions in the Czech Republic and CEE. He is experienced in acquisition finance and real estate finance, corporate law and business contracts law.” Hurych joined Dentons in 2010 from Clifford Chance, where he worked for 12 years. Hurych graduated summa cum laude as a Master of Laws from the Law Faculty of Charles University in 1997, received an LL.M. degree in International Business Law at the Central European University in Budapest in 2000, and received a second LL.M. degree in International Comparative Law at the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law in the United States in 2003.
In Warsaw, Aleksandra Minkowicz-Flanek, Tomasz Janas, and Michal Jochemczak joined the partnership.
Minkowicz-Flanek is the Head of the Labor and Employment practice team in Dentons’ Warsaw office, where she specializes in labor and employment law and on corporate issues. According to Dentons, “she has broad experience of individual and collective labor law issues, employment restructuring, collective dismissals, remuneration in the banking sector and employment-related aspects of corporate transactions,” and “she has an extensive background servicing clients in the banking, food processing, automotive and advanced technology sectors.” Minkowicz-Flanek began her legal career after graduating from the University of Warsaw in 1999 as an Associate with Hunton & Williams, and joined Salans in 2001. In 2009 she joined Pricewaterhouse Coopers Legal as Counsel, but in 2012 she returned to Salans, and was there when the firm merged and reformed into Dentons in 2013.
Janas is member of the Energy and Natural Resources practice team in Warsaw. According to Dentons, "Tomasz has over ten years’ experience providing legal advice on infrastructure projects, including in the energy sector (relating to conventional and renewable energy),” and “he concentrates primarily on regulatory issues, M&A, privatization and selected aspects of financing energy projects.” After graduating from the University of Lodz in 2001 he joined Salans in February of 2002, then moved to Gide Loyrette Nouel in 2005. After two years with Gide he moved to Clifford Chance, where he stayed for six years before moving back to Salans — now part of Dentons — as a Counsel in October 2013.
Jochemczak heads the Arbitration practice in Warsaw. He specializes in complex arbitration and litigation and has represented clients in high profile domestic and international arbitration cases. According to Dentons, he "has acted as counsel in numerous international joint-venture, M&A, real estate, construction, corporate, and financial services disputes,” and “he advises clients on international civil law and has significant experience in the fields of jurisdiction, enforcement of judgments and conflict of laws.” The firm reports that he "also provides legal advice to creditors, management and shareholders in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings.” He graduated from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan in 2004 and joined then-Salans in 2005.
