Holmans in Greece loses head

Holman Fenwick & Willan’s Greek office is losing its managing partner to Watson Farley & Williams.

John Krzywkowski, who was set to move back to Holman Fenwick’s London office next year, has decided to remain in Piraeus. He is taking shipping partner Jeremy Watson with him.

Krzywkowski has already been replaced by Charles Lowe, who was to take over as managing partner in September, but who finished his sabbatical early in order to start immediately.

Senior partner at Holman Fenwick, Greg Gray, says that Krzywkowski’s resignation was unexpected.

“I understand that John has decided he does want to stay in Greece and we wish him well,” he says.

“We have chosen Lowe to succeed him because he opened our Hong Kong office in the early 1980s and he’s an experienced partner.”

Lowe says that Krzywkowski was a good operator and the news of his resignation comes as an unwelcome surprise.
