Welcome corporate whistleblowers

Recently we have seen a growing interest in issues relating to whistle-blower protection and its role in modern business. The main emphasis in the discussion about whistleblowers and their duties, rights and obligations was put on the individuals involved in whistle-blowing. It was also focused on creating mechanisms allowing individual whistleblowers to feel safe once they make their notification, either internally within the organization or externally with public authorities.

However, it has to be noted that not only an individual can be a whistle-blower. In the Polish legal system, a number of regulations penalize individual and corporate behaviors and the list of such regulations is constantly growing.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges has announced that it will be withdrawing from Poland, the firm's last presence in Central and Eastern Europe, with the firm's Warsaw-based partners to take over the business on January 1, 2020 and operating going forward as Rymarz Zdort.

CMS has advised CEE Equity Partners — the investment advisor to the China Central and Eastern Europe Investment Co-operation Fund II — on its acquisition of a majority stake in EuroWagon Sp. z o.o. Grant Thornton's Poznan-based transaction advisory and legal arm advised the unidentified sellers.
