On 28 October 2015, at a conference under the theme “Mediation as a New Category in Legal Practice”, Piotr Kochański and Tobiasz Szychowski, attorneys at law, received the award granted to our law firm. “Kochański Zięba & Partners agrees to court mediation because it is beneficial to our clients – we believe in our professional ethos and that’s why we focus on our clients’ needs and interests. If based on our legal analysis and our assessment of evidence and the potential outcome of the proceedings in a given case we conclude that a settlement without a trial is in the client’s best interests, and the client has approved such solution, then this is what we aim at. Clients must be aware that is it possible to use mediation to resolve disputes, so, where appropriate, we educate our clients, explain the nature and benefits of mediation to them, try to make them aware of all tools that can be used in the resolution of their disputes.”, said Piotr Kochański.   KZP dyplom uznania 2015 jpgCentrum Mediacji Lewiatan at Konfederacja Lewiatan (currently operating under the name Mazowieckie Centrum Arbitrażu i Mediacji [Masovian Arbitration and Mediation Centre] at Konfederacja Lewiatan), is an institution promoting state-of-the-art, amicable resolution of commercial disputes.
