Former Magnusson Partner and Head of Energy and Infrastructure Magdalena Mitas has joined DLA Piper Warsaw as Counsel and Head of Energy.
Mitas specializes in energy law and environmental law in projects related to renewable energy sources and electro-mobility for the gas, electricity, heating, fuel, and automotive industries, with particular emphasis on regulatory and transaction aspects, investment implementation, commercial contracts, and public aid.
She has specific expertise in advising on international regulations affecting the implementation of energy projects, including those relating to the mining and transportation of raw materials.
Krzysztof Kycia, DLA Piper Co-Managing Partner in Poland, said, “Magdalena Mitas brings to the firm a valuable and in-depth knowledge of the energy sector in Poland as well as in the international context, which our current and new clients will be able to benefit from. This includes not only legal issues, but also business knowledge.”
“The energy sector is a strategic area of development for us in which we see potential, of course bearing in mind our clients’ current needs that we are trying to address. We firmly believe that Magdalena will help us to comprehensively service this sector,” added fellow Co-Managing Partner Jacek Gizinski.
Mitas joined Magnusson two year ago (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 1, 2016). Previously she worked with Kochanski Zieba & Partners, where she also led energy practice. She has previous stints with the DeBenedetti Majewski Szczesniak, Andrzej Sikora law office and the Sobolewski Szuwara law firm.
She studied Public Economy Law at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Business Law at Middlesex University in London, and International Law at the University of Westminster in London.
