Grzegorz Pizon, former Counsel at SSW Pragmatic Solutions, has brought his team to Bird & Bird’s Warsaw office.
According to Bird & Bird, “the appointment of Grzegorz is an integral part of [the firm’s] strategic plan to strengthen the firm’s Energy & Utilities sector group in Warsaw and to provide both local and international clients with expert advice on energy transactions in Poland.”
Pizon, who joins as a partner, has a full decade of professional experience as an energy and utilities lawyer. He specializes in regulatory matters and, according to Bird & Bird, he “has built a portfolio of clients across the energy and utilities sector, including in renewable, conventional and industrial, as well as the steel, cement, glass, and paper industries. He has also advised on climate change and sustainability matters, including the Green Deal and corporate power purchase agreements.”
Pizon has a Master’s degree in Law from the University of Warsaw and is currently completing his Ph.D. studies at Kozminski University. Before joining Bird & Bird, he spent over six years with EY Law and two and a half years with SSW Pragmatic Solutions.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a diverse, international law firm,” Pizon stated. “At Bird & Bird, I’ll be able to provide clients with a one-stop shop service, focusing primarily on opportunities and business challenges stemming from technologically driven transformation towards a sustainable and green economy. I’m looking forward to meeting and working with the rest of my colleagues in the Energy & Utilities Team in Warsaw and across the firm."
Joining with Pizon from SSW Pragmatic Solutions are Associates Joanna Perzyna and Lukasz Bondaruk.
“I am very much looking forward to working with Grzegorz,” added Bird & Bird Warsaw Managing Partner Slawomir Szepietowski. “His regulatory expertise and experience carrying out high-value energy transactions in Poland will hugely benefit our team in Warsaw. Welcome Grzegorz!”
“Poland remains a very attractive country for energy transactions, both for local and international players,” commented Matt Bonass, Co-Head of Bird & Bird’s international Energy & Utilities group. “With Grzegorz and his team on board, we’ll be able to provide advice to energy clients both locally in Poland and across the Bird & Bird network".
