How does my legal partner work?
We are pleased to inform you that on 11 April, Wojciech Hartung, Counsel in the Infrastructure & Energy Practice, obtained his doctorate in law. Wojciech defended his doctoral dissertation entitled "Independence of main local government unit in organisation and provision of municipal services from the perspective of European and national law" with honours.
The aim of his dissertation was to show, based on existing legal solutions and their application in practice, the extent to which it is possible for local government units to define and provide municipal services and to outsource them, i.e. including private entities in their performance. The analysis was based primarily on solutions in EU, Polish and French law.
Wojciech's dissertation was written under the supervision of Prof. dr hab. Jan Galster and Dr Pawel Nowicki at the European Law Department of the Law and Administration Faculty at Nicholaus Copernicus University in Torun.
Wojciech is an experience lawyer, combining practical knowledge with academic preparation, which is confirmed by him gaining the title of doctor of law. I am sure that in the legal profession, requiring lawyers to constantly improve their knowledge and gain new skills, his academic dissertation also has a very practical level, as the knowledge he has gained will enable him to resolve the complex legal problems facing our clients - said Katarzyna Kuźma, Partner in the Infrastructure & Energy Practice.
