Poland Doing Better than Most

According to Ron Given, Partner at Wolf Theiss, “the Polish market is doing better than most of the world where M&A is down.”

Dentons has advised P3 Logistic Parks on Polish and Romanian aspects of a EUR 1.4 billion pan-European refinancing of its logistics portfolio, with White & Case advising P3 on Czech and Slovakian aspects and Freshfields advising P3 on separate facilities for Western Europe (including Poland). Financing in Poland and Western Europe was provided by Morgan Stanley with Pbb as agent (advised by Allen & Overy), in Romania by Raiffeisen Bank International (advised by CMS), and in the Czech Republic and Slovakia by CSOB, CSOB Slovakia, Komercni Banka, UniCredit Bank, and Ceska Sporitelna (all advised by Clifford Chance).

In “The Buzz” we interview experts on the legal industry living and working in Central and Eastern Europe to find out what’s happening in the region and what legislative/professional/cultural trends and developments they’re following closely. Because the interviews are carried out and published on the CEE Legal Matters website on a rolling basis, we’ve marked the dates on which the interviews were originally published.

White & Case has announced the promotion of 40 lawyers around the world to its partnership. The promotions, which are effective January 1, 2017, represent 11 of the firm's global practices in 17 locations. Including in those 40 world-wide promotions are Czech Banking lawyer Jan Linda and Polish Disputes specialist Michal Subocz.

CMS Poland has announced that it is inviting third, fourth, and fifth-year law students to take part in a labor law competition at the firm, with available prizes including an IPad, sets of law books, and paid internships at the firm. 

On October 1, 2016 WKB Wiercinski, Kwiecinski, Baehr appointed a new Partner: Marcin Smolarek, who will be responsible for the firm’s Banking and Finance practice.
