Norton Rose Fulbright Partner Pawel Bajno Flies to Bird & Bird


Bird & Bird has appointed financial services expert Pawel Bajno as a partner and head of the Private Equity team in its Corporate practice, based in Warsaw.

Bajno, who joins from Norton Rose Fulbright, where he was a partner and head of the Warsaw Private Equity team, advises private equity funds in M&A transactions, including public M&A, public-to-private transactions, and exit strategies. He also advises companies on corporate governance matters and Polish capital markets and securities law. According to Bird & bird, "he has extensive experience in collaborating with colleagues in other European offices and at Norton Rose was one of the key partners of the firm's Pan-European Private Equity Group. Pawel has worked on transactions completed by private equity and venture capital funds, both in Poland and abroad."

"The appointment of Pawel – a well-known M&A expert in the Polish market – will significantly boost our Corporate capabilities and attract complex transaction projects," commented Slawomir Szepietowski, Managing Partner of Bird & Bird Poland. Referring to the recent arrival of former Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland Managing Partner Tomasz Zalewski, who joined Bird & Bird as Partner and Head of the firm's Commercial team in Warsaw earlier in January as reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 7, 2019, Szepietowski added: "Pawel and the recent arrival of Tomasz and his team will not only further enhance our presence in Warsaw but throughout Central Europe. I look forward to welcoming Pawel to Bird & Bird."

Bajno commented that: "With the number of M&A deals expected to grow in 2019, Poland remains one of the leading destinations for private equity and venture capital investments in Central and Eastern Europe. Bird & Bird's international scope and sector focus will allow me to continue developing my practice with inter-office and cross-border collaboration."
