It was one of the first private patent offices in Poland. The current abbreviation of JWP refers to the original company name “Jan Wierzchoń & Partners”, and it is also a carrier of our core values ​​- quality, knowledge, professionalism”, said Magdalena Pietrosiuk, partner, at the inauguration of the event.

One of key moments in the program was handing the commemorative statues to the persons who have worked in the company from its very beginnings, and contributed substantively to its forming and development. The statutes were given to eight persons.
