What's new at DZP?

Current projects.

A multi-disciplinary team of experts at DZP advised the French hotel firm Algonquin on the purchase of one of the most prestigious hotels in Poland – the Hotel Sheraton Kraków. Algonquin paid EUR 38 million for the Krakow hotel, which will continue to be managed under the Sheraton brand. This is the first hotel in Central Europe that the French firm has purchased.

DZP's assistance covered both legal and tax advisory. In the transaction the legal regimes of five countries had to be taken into account (Poland, Great Britain, Ireland, Switzerland and Belgium). Eleven law firms, four consulting firms and two banks took part in the negotiations.

The hotel, which is situated opposite Wawel castle, opened in 2004. It is one of the most luxurious hotels in Poland, with seven floors, 232 rooms, bars and restaurants and a conference and leisure centre.

The project was led by Bartosz Marcinkowski, Partner in the Corporate and M&A Practice and Magdalena Skowrońska, Partner in the Capital Markets and Financial Institutions Practice, with the team advising the client also comprising: Paulina Armada-RudnikRafał SurowiecSylwia KucaJoanna Wierzejska, Head of Tax Practice, Krzysztof DybaTomasz Kalicki, Marcin Kuliński and Krzysztof StrzęboszewskiLech Żyżylewski, Head of Real Estate Practice and Anna Okła-Woźniak.
