We are pleased to announce that Grzegorz Godlewski, an attorney-at-law with many years of experience on the M&A market, has joined our firm as a partner.

Grzegorz specializes in M&A and corporate law and advises clients on transactions within insolvency and restructuring proceedings. He also provides support in state aid matters.

Grzegorz has experience in projects in a variety of sectors of the economy, with a particular focus on energy and financial markets.

Both large private companies, as well as State-owned enterprises, are among his clients.

He is a member of the Warsaw Bar Association (Okręgowa Izba Radców Prawnych w Warszawie). He has been recommended many times by the renowned LEGAL 500 EMEA and IFLR 1000 legal rankings.

We are happy that Grzegorz has joined our team – his skills will further strengthen our practices, both on the Polish market as well as in international transactions, while his many years of experience in M&A transactions on the energy market fit perfectly with the scope of our firm’s practice – said dr Jerzy Baehr, a managing partner at WKB.

Grzegorz joining the firm is a result of the dynamic growth of our team. The number and scale of transactions, including cross-border transactions, which we advise on continues to grow year on year. We recently advised on the acquisition of AVIVA Poland by Allianz, which was the largest transaction in the history of the Polish insurance market (valued at PLN 11.7 billion). With the expanded team’s combined knowledge and experience we will be able to extend our presence on the growing M&A market and further tailor our services to the needs of our clients, which are active in many sectors of the economy – added Jakub Jędrzejak, partner and co-head of WKB’s M&A practice.
