Katarzyna Szczudlik nominated in the 11th edition of the Rising Stars competition
Wolters Kluwer and prawo.pl have published a list of thirty-five male and female lawyers nominated for awards in this year’s eleventh edition of the ‘Rising Stars Lawyers – Leaders of Tomorrow 2022’ competition. What characterises this select group? They are young and creative. They know the market and business trends. They combine theoretical knowledge and the ability to balance their careers with academic work and pro bono activities. They specialise in a variety of legal disciplines, from criminal law to restructurings, tax, labour law, new technologies law and commercial disputes. They work in law firms, as in-house lawyers, in local government offices and in NGOs. They have open minds and big hearts.
Katarzyna Szczudlik, a partner at SSW, is one of them. Katarzyna specialises in personal data protection and new technologies law. Just two weeks ago, she was nominated as one of the best lawyers in Poland by Forbes Women Poland and the Women in Law Foundation.
The Rising Stars jury will soon select 10 award winners from the 35 nominees. They may also select 5 lawyers for the special awards category. The final gala, during which the results of the competition will be announced, takes place on 23 November.
‘In this year’s edition of the competition we received a great number of interesting applications,’ says Danuta Przywara, the Chairwoman of the Council of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, who chaired this year’s Rising Stars Competition Chapter. – We paid attention to the deepening of knowledge and professional achievements, but we attached equal importance to pro bono activity and activity for the common good. Fortunately, there are very many young lawyers who are able to combine these two worlds brilliantly,” she adds.
