Imperial Tobacco’s legal team in Poland has been named as one of the country’s best in-house legal operations.
Companies were asked to rank their legal teams against set criteria with the scores independently verified by the Polish Society of In-House Lawyers and the Association of Corporate Counsel.
Imperial was ranked third nationally.
The legal team worked closely with their corporate affairs colleagues to support the development of legislation to end the sale of untaxed raw tobacco leaf, which is due to come into effect next month.
“I’m delighted our legal team was ranked so highly and the fact that Imperial has been recognised as a great employer in this way is also very satisfying,” said Elżbieta Kurasińska, legal affairs manager, who accepted the company’s award at a ceremony inWarsaw.
“This external recognition from other lawyers has added extra impetus to our work and we will strive to maintain our standards going forward.”
