A team of four Capital Markets lawyers headed by Partner Robert Dulewicz has left Dentons to join Gide Loyrette Nouel in Warsaw.
Dulewicz will head Gide Warsaw's Capital Markets department. According to the firm, he "has over 20 years' experience in securities law and unique experience in capital markets transactions. He has participated in preparing documentation for Poland’s first issue of revenue bonds and for one of the first issuances of dematerialized debt securities. He has prepared documentation and participated in the negotiations of many debt securities programs on the Polish market. He has also advised banks, borrowers, and foreign and domestic investors on a number of syndicated loans and debt securities issuance programs."
According to Gide, "Robert also specializes in infrastructure financing, with projects including airports, railways, rolling stock and wastewater management. As member of a non-treasury securities workgroup of the Polish Bank Association, he prepared proposals of amendments to the Act on Bonds and was involved in legislative works on the same act, organized by the Ministry of Finance."
Before joining Gide, he worked in the Warsaw and London offices of Clifford Chance, and more recently at Dentons Warsaw, where he co-headed the Capital Markets department.
Coming with Dulewicz from Dentons are Counsel Michal Smiechowski, Senior Associate Agnieszka Kozikowska, and Associate Natalia Skomorowska.
"Gide has a thriving team of International Capital Markets specialists, particularly active in Europe, the United States, and on emerging markets," said Dariusz Tokarczuk, partner in charge of Gide Warsaw. "We are certain that Robert Dulewicz and his team's competence and extensive transactional experience will contribute to the dynamic development of this practice in the Warsaw office of Gide."
Xavier de Kergommeaux and Stephane Puel, Gide's Senior and Managing Partners, added in a joint statement that: "We are delighted to see the arrival of this team in Warsaw and the appointment of Robert Dulewicz as partner of our firm. Robert is one of the most highly regarded experts on the Polish market, and his in-depth knowledge of capital markets is a precious asset to help meet the various challenges our clients face. These recruitments are a perfect expression of our firm's dynamic development and our ambition to bring together the greatest market specialists in key fields for our clients."
