Former Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland Partner and Head of Energy Lukasz Jankowski has joined DLA Piper Warsaw as Counsel in the firm's Litigation & Regulatory practice.

Jankowski's practice focuses on energy law, with a particular emphasis on the electricity and natural gas markets. According to DLA Piper, "he has many years of experience providing legal advice for the energy sector, and has implemented a number of projects for trading companies and distribution system operators, including infrastructure proceedings and regulatory proceedings before the Court of Competition and Consumer Protection." The firm reports that he "supports clients in regulatory matters, including concessions, tariffs, and cases regarding fines imposed by the president of the Energy Regulatory Office."

Jankowski joined Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland in January 2016 after a year as Head of Energy with the Chalas i Wspolnicy Law Firm and four and a half years in-house with Innogy Polska. He also spent almost three years with the Kalwas & Partners Law Firm from 2005-2007.

Jankowski move to DLA Piper comes shortly after that of Marek Sawicki and Jakub Marcinkowski from CMS as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 5, 2019 and Counsel Adriana Mierzwa-Bronikowska and Senior Associate Agnieszka Chylinska from Hogan Lovells as reported on August 29, 2019

In a joint statement, DLA Piper Warsaw Co-Managing Partners Krzysztof Kycia and Jacek Gizinski said: “The CEE region continues to be a strategic focus of the firm, and these hires will create an even stronger platform from which to service our clients. Marek and Jakub's appointment is a key part of our growth strategy in Poland and the wider CEE region, as we continue to develop our market leading cross-border Corporate and Private Equity practices. These appointments along with Adriana, Agnieszka, and Lukasz's are a further demonstration of our commitment to continue to invest in our business to strengthen and deepen our offering. We anticipate significant opportunities across the region and we are confident that these new hires will play a key role in the further development of our capabilities.”
