Clyde & Co has announced that it will open an office in Warsaw, following the hires of Partners Arkadiusz Krasnodebski, Agnieszka Kulinska, and Radoslaw Goral – alongside a team of 20 associates and counsel.

Kulinska, Krasnodebski, and Goral were all previously Partners in Dentons’ Poland office. According to Clyde & Co, “the team brings a multidisciplinary corporate and energy offering, with a particular focus on renewables, and including disputes across various sectors.”

Kulinska had spent the past 13 years with Dentons, the final four as a Partner. Before that, she spent a year with Dentons legacy firm Salans and a further four and a half years with Wardynski & Partners. Going forward, she will lead Clyde & Co’s Energy practice in the country.

Before the move, energy specialist Krasnodebski spent 20 years with the Dentons team: almost 11 years with Dentons – over nine of which as the firm’s Managing Partner – and another nine years with legacy firm Salans.

Before joining Clyde & Co, Goral had spent over ten years with Dentons, as well as six and a half years with Salans, and a further two and a half years with Chadbourne & Parke. According to Clyde & Co, he specializes in “dispute resolution, with a specific focus on insurance and financial sector clients, but also works with telecommunications, energy, and other regulated industries.”

“Poland is Europe’s sixth largest economy and will be a significant player in the energy transition as it seeks to move away from fossil fuels and improve its energy security at pace,” Clyde & Co CEO Matthew Kelsall commented. “Opening here has been a long-term ambition for us and this high caliber team provides a strong foundation for our Warsaw office to grow, bringing with them impressive energy sector expertise alongside a broad corporate and contentious offering.”

“The opening of Clyde & Co’s Warsaw office is a real milestone in the firm’s international expansion,” Clyde & Co Energy, Marine, and Natural Resources practice Global Chair David Bennet added. “The country’s commitment to the transition to renewable and clean energy sources is unequivocal and backed by significant government investment. We welcome [Krasnodebski, Kulinska, and Goral] and the rest of the team and look forward to engaging with clients on the energy transition in Poland and the broader CEE region.”
