Agata Jurek-Zbrojska, Malgorzata Madej-Balcerowska, and Dominik Rafalko have joined CMS’s Poland office as Partners along a seven-person team from Greenberg Traurig. Jurek-Zbrojska will head the Real Estate and Construction practice.

Before joining CMS, Jurek-Zbrojska was a Partner at Greenberg Traurig, and has worked with Hogan Lovells, Garrigues, and Salans (now Dentons).

Before joining CMS, Madej-Balcerowska was a Local Partner with Greenberg Traurig and has also spent time with Hogan Lovells and Chadbourne & Parke. 

Before joining CMS, Rafalko too was a Local Partner with Greenberg Traurig, and has spent time before that with Salans (Dentons).

I am pleased to be able to work every day with lawyers from CMS’s team whom to date I met at numerous projects and whom I highly respect,“ says Jurek-Zbrojska. “The real estate market is currently undergoing development and changes that are creating new business opportunities for investors. We are seeing huge interest in transactions in the logistics segment of the market, increased activity in the office and commercial real estate sector, as well as significant and dynamic change in the residential investment sector.”

“Our goal is to create a team that will be the first-choice advisor in the real estate market in Poland,” adds Managing Partner Andrzej Posniak. “Our investment in further growing our real estate team is also a great opportunity for the firm as a whole due to the business synergies across our practices. I am convinced that the co-operation between the combined team and across the firm will enable us to successfully achieve our ambitious goals.”

Along with three new Partners, the following lawyers will be joining the CMS real estate and construction practice over the next months: Anna Wisniewska as Counsel, Zuzanna Bafia as Senior Associate, and Michal Gruza, Aleksander Klys, Magdalena Piotrowska-Gwiazdowska, Marta Trebacka, and Joanna Ostapiuk as Associates.

Editorial Note: This article originally indicated that the entire team has already joined CMS. It has subsequently been edited to reflect that the full team of 10 lawyers will be joining over the course of the next few months.
