The Rzeczpospolia Law Firm Ranking is the most influential list of law firms in Poland. The firms are ranked on the basis of the number of lawyers – bar members and all law graduates – employed by the firms requesting to be included in the list. A report on the situation in the market of legal services published by Rzeczpospolita together with the ranking placed SMM Legal in the exclusive group of growth leaders in the last decade.
In the key category – ranked by the number of bar members – our firm achieved a strong 14th position. In the second list, based on the number of lawyers in general, we obtained the 16th place. The 2020 ranking has set a record from the perspective of the number of participating firms. The editorial board examined as many as 307 largest and most reputable law firms from Poland.
Together with the list, Rzeczpospolita published a detailed report on the Polish market of legal services. The study included an analysis of the law firm development trends in the period 2010-2020. The report placed SMM Legal among the very few growth leaders, with a growth ratio of 272%.
‘Obviously, we regret that the traditional gala, which has always been a great opportunity to build good relationships in the sector, could not take place this year’, says Mr. Przemysław Maciak, Managing Partner at SMM Legal. ‘However, the ranking itself continues to be as pertinent as ever, and we are proud of our high position in the list and our place among the leaders maintaining the highest growth dynamic’, adds Mr. Maciak.
This year, due to the pandemic, the results were announced on 27 July online. The full ranking list is available here and in the printed issue of Rzeczpospolita of 28 July 2020.
