CMS Takes New Environmental Head from Dentons in Poland


CMS has announced that its environmental team will be led going forward by Agnieszka Skorupinska, a Polish-qualified advocate with 10 years’ experience in Polish and European environmental protection law and natural resources law.

Skorupinska joins from Dentons, where she spent the previous six years, after spending three at WKB Wiercinski, Kwiecinski, Baehr.

According to CMS, Skorupinska advises corporate clients "on regulatory matters, development projects, environmental aspects of real estate transactions, mergers and acquisitions and financing processes. Over the years, she has successfully represented clients in environment-related administrative and judicial proceedings." The firm reports that her experience "covers such matters as historical contamination of soil and ground water, environmental damage, baseline reports, environmental impact assessments, protection of air, including adherence to IED and BAT emission standards as well as obtaining derogations and exemptions from such standards, issues related to CO2 emissions, obtaining environmental permits, including integrated permits, REACH, waste and water management." In addition, "she has successfully acted as an advisor to companies from the power generation, renewable energy, chemical, construction, waste management, FMCG, water and sewage, renewable energy, automotive, textile and food sectors."

“At CMS we are committed to providing top quality legal advice and we are glad that, with Agnieszka heading the environmental practice, we will be able to give our clients the benefit of our combined experience, especially these days, when environmental law is changing rapidly,” says CMS Partner Tomasz Minkiewicz, who heads the CMS energy practice.

As a counsel at CMS, she will head the environmental practice, which is part of the Energy and Projects Department.
