Eversheds Sutherland Wierzbowski is advising the Polish Ministry of Finance and Polish Financial Supervision Authority on a project titled "On the Road to Financial Inclusion and Innovation," which is designed to establish a legal and technological framework for developing the FinTech and SupTech sector in Poland. The project also involves, among others, the EBRD.

Clifford Chance has advised INEA, an open-access fiber-optic network operator in Poland, on additional financing of over PLN 400 million procured from a consortium of Bank Pekao S.A., Credit Agricole Bank Polska S.A., Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, EBRD, ING Bank Slaski S.A., PKO BP S.A., BNP Paribas Bank Polska S.A., and PZU Fizan BIS 1. White & Case advised the lenders on the deal.

Dentons and Kirkland & Ellis have represented GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, on the acquisition of the Maximus logistics real estate portfolio from funds managed by Apollo Global Management, a US-based private equity firm. Noerr advised the sellers on the transaction, which was signed in December 2019 and closed on January 31, 2020, and which was valued at approximately EUR 950 million.

With GDP growth for 2019 projected to be approximately 4%, the Polish economy remains strong, and the country’s real estate sector continues to set new records. The low availability of housing, strong domestic consumption, and stable industry production have boosted the profitability of real estate investments. Demand for land is high and developers compete fiercely for the shrinking number of attractive spots. In August 2019, a new law came into force which may make real properties held in a right of perpetual usufruct (RPU) more attractive than they used to be.
