Dentons Business Services EMEA opens in Warsaw.
Dentons Business Services EMEA (DBSE) is a joint initiative between the UK, Middle East and Africa (UKMEA) and Europe regions of the Firm. It leverages both regions' combined scale and resources more effectively by co-locating in one center certain tasks that are currently performed across numerous offices, enabling the Firm to deliver better service and increased value to clients.
"The launch of DBSE marks the beginning of our global shared services strategy - a key integration initiative that aims to improve the quality of business services provided to lawyers across the Firm", said Dentons Global Chairman Joe Andrew. "Dentons now has a presence in 58 countries, and while our polycentric culture means that we respect the legal traditions and cultures in all of these markets, it is also important for us to focus on delivering a seamless one-firm experience to the increasing number of clients who instruct us across multiple offices and regions."
"Following our unprecedented growth trajectory over the past few years we now have more lawyers with greater experience in more locations than any other firm," said Dentons Global CEO Elliott Portnoy. "By already attracting business services professionals from leading law firms, professional services organisations and multinationals DBSE represents a major step forward toward achieving our goal of offering clients the highest quality of legal work better, faster and more economically than any of our competitors".
Tomasz Dabrowski, CEO of Dentons Europe added, “As Dentons continues to grow across Europe, DBSE will allow us to build up a high quality, fit-for-purpose business services function to support the increasingly sophisticated needs of our business and our clients.”
Led by Director Piotr Macieja, DBSE is based at the Atrium Centrum building, within walking distance of Dentons' Warsaw office. It currently employs more than 70 people working across the areas of finance, business development and marketing, human resources and IT, with plans to grow further over the next two years.
“Even in an extremely competitive labor market, we have been fortunate in attracting top caliber talent to our team, and this is largely thanks to Dentons’ reputation as the undisputed leader in the Polish legal sector.” said Piotr Macieja, DBSE Director.
