Dentons represented Newag in proceedings before the Polish National Appeal Chamber (KIO) concerning a dispute over a tender for the delivery of 11 trains to Koleje Dolnoslaskie.
Koleje had chosen Newag’s bid over one submitted by Pesa, which it viewed as flagrantly underpriced. Pesa appealed the outcome of the tender but KIO dismissed the appeal and ruled in favor of the awarding body. If Pesa chooses not to appeal KIO’s ruling, Koleje Dolnoslaskie will be free to go ahead with Newag. Newag was represented in the appeal proceedings before KIO by Dentons Partner Aldona Kowalczyk, who heads the public procurements team in the firm's Warsaw office.
