Wolf Theiss has set up a Restructuring Practice in its Warsaw office and appointed former DWF and K&L Gates Partner Lech Gilicinski as its head.

Gilicinski will also take on the role of Coordinator for Restructuring, Insolvency and Distressed Investments in Central Europe.

Gilicinski has 27 years of professional experience, focusing on “operational and financial turnarounds, distressed asset sales and private equity.” Before joining Wolf Theiss, he was a partner in the Warsaw office of DWF (previously K&L Gates). His experience also includes work for White & Case and as principal legal adviser to Poland's Ministry of Justice and the EBRD during the introduction of Poland’s Bankruptcy and Rehabilitation Law. Gilicinski was also the Country Partner for the World Bank in the area of insolvency and restructuring.

“I am really delighted to join this vibrant team of recognized experts at one of the most ambitious law firms in the region, to support its expansion into the high-growth area of corporate restructuring and asset sales,” Gilicinski said. 

Also joining Wolf Theiss from DWF is Counsel Joanna Gasowski, who is admitted to practice in both Poland and New York. Gasowski, who holds a restructuring advisor license in Poland, focuses on bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings, as well as on mezzanine financing for the real estate sector

“The arrival of Lech and Joanna marks another important step in the expansion of our firm in Central and Eastern Europe and helps strengthen our truly regional presence,” said Tomasz Stasiak, Co-Managing Partner at Wolf Theiss in Warsaw.
