For over 20 years we have been advising on transactions of international scope and local projects in various sectors of the economy.
Alongside dispute resolution, transactional advice is a core practice of the law firm, representing a significant proportion of the matters we handle.
We act for all parties of transactions: sellers, buyers, and other stakeholders, as well as financial institutions and the management board of target companies. We are thoroughly familiar with the Polish and CEE markets, where we assist foreign investors in establishing a presence. We also assist Polish investors abroad. Thanks to our many years of experience cooperating with the top foreign law firms in M&A, we provide support for cross-border transactions in Poland and across Europe.
How we work
We help structure transactions and formulate the documentation to properly secure the interests of our clients and limit the risk of disputes arising between the parties. If the company operates in a regulated industry, we reflect the specifics of the industry and its regulations in the transaction. Our goal is to minimise the time and expense necessary to close the transaction.
We advise at all stages of transactions. We prepare full due diligence reports. We draw up framework agreements governing the structure and specific stages of the transaction, letters of intent, heads of agreement, confidentiality agreements, preliminary agreements, contractual undertakings and dispositive agreements, involving shares, enterprises, organised parts of enterprises, and specific assets. We assist in the changes necessary to spin off companies and for the company or enterprise to pass from the control of one capital group to another, including transfer of rights and obligations under existing contracts. After closing, we advise on matters related to performance of the obligations under the transaction documents as well as public-law obligations connected with the transaction.
Given the size of the law firm, we can put together a team of lawyers large enough to meet the needs of each project.
We provide legal support for transactions in Polish and English. Upon request, we are also capable of handling projects in German and French.
Within our transactional practice, we also provide comprehensive advice on such areas as corporate law, tax law, environmental law, competition law, employment law, real estate, capital markets, restructuring and project finance.
