The technical dual listing was collectively designed, project-managed and coordinated from start to finish by Kochanski Zięba & Partners (Poland) and Pinsent Masons (UK) law firms, as well as ProPrimo Consultants.

Szymon Gałkowski, the partner that led the project for Kochanski Zięba & Partners, advises “The dual listing of a Polish company through depositary interests on the London Stock Exchange is the first of its kind, and we have seen a greater amount of interest from Polish companies seeking to follow in Work Service’s footsteps, as this gives Polish companies access to a large pool of new capital and investors, and increases their visibility on international markets.”
