Wolf Theiss and Oziemska Gruner & Partners have advised Polish IT developer Touk on the transaction that led to approximately 65 of its engineers joining Snowflake's developer team in Warsaw. Baker McKenzie advised Snowflake.

Snowflake is an American cloud-based data storage and analytics company. It opened its Warsaw office in early 2021.

"Our investment in TouK builds on our growing presence in Warsaw and allows us to further capitalize on the region’s talented software engineers," Snowflake's press statement announced. "This latest acquisition will bring the total number of employees at the Snowflake Warsaw office to more than 300, the majority of which are engineers [...] The new hires will work on tools and technologies that further improve the Snowflake experience for data scientists and data engineers, as well as for developers building native apps or using Streamlit as part of the Snowflake Native Applications framework."

The Wolf Theiss team was led by Partner Anna Tomowicz and included Counsel Dariusz Harbaty.

The Oziemska Gruner & Partners team included Partner Anna Oziemska and Associate Wiktor Kuklinski.

The Baker McKenzie team included Warsaw-based Partner Tomasz Krzyzowski, Counsel Radzym Wojcik, and Senior Associate Magdalena Chochowska, as well as Palo Alto-based Partner Lawrence Lee and Associates Mallory Craig-Karim and Nicolas Woo.
