Will I resolve more complex problems?
Different practices. One analysis. Your solution.
Our Infrastructure and Energy Practice lawyers create the most well known and recognisable professional group which supports both domestic and foreign businesses and the public sector in key projects.
Apart from our reliable knowledge, what makes us different is our experience, unique in Poland, of an extremely wide spectrum of projects. Our team’s local roots give us a better understanding of the domestic business and legal environment and our long-term contacts with numerous foreign partners have enabled us to implement the highest international standards of co-operation. This combination is a source of new business opportunities for our clients and guarantees the success of even the most complex projects. It has also enabled us to build up a comprehensive range of advisory services in all business areas which are provided to both private and public entities.
Our awareness of the public sector, where many of our Practice members gained their professional experience, its specifics and special requirements means that our actions are efficient and effective. This is supported by the numerous projects we have carried out both for and with public entities.
Our professional interests are centred on projects involving line infrastructure, rail, air and road transport, greenfield investments, waste management and water and sewage management, organisation of public transport and EU funds.
We offer full-range services to enterprises and investors in the transport and energy sectors. We advise on company acquisitions and the financing of energy projects, also on investments in the energy producer sector, including wind farms. We draw up legal analyses and participate in privatisation, merger, acquisition and restructuring transactions and infrastructure projects carried out either based on public procurement law or by way of public-private partnerships or concessions.
