Marcin Bejm, already the head of CMS's Infrastructure and Project Finance practice, has become the head of the Energy and Projects department as well, taking over from Tomasz Minkiewicz.
Bejm joined CMS as Head of Infrastructure and Project Finance in March 2018 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on April 6, 2018), after spending ten years at Clifford Chance, seven years with Norton Rose, and almost three years with Baker McKenzie. According to CMS, his professional experience "includes advising clients on transactions and projects in sectors such as: airports, seaports, highways, railways, healthcare, public transport, IT, heating, water and sewage, renewable energy, oil and gas, and waste management," and the firm reports that he "specializes in the project finance and public-private partnership projects."
"We are currently dynamically increasing the scale of our business – in particular the renewable energy and waste management markets are providing us with opportunities for rapid development," explained Bejm. "We want to further utilize our well known strengths: a highly experienced team, in-depth sector knowledge and out of box thinking in approaching legal issues. They are crucial to strengthen our leading position on the project market, where the ability to effectively solve complex legal problems is in great demand.”
"Recent years have been a period of rapid change and growth for the firm," added CMS Poland Managing Partner Andrzej Posniak. "Our energy team has been a market leader in Poland for many years. We have also achieved the position of Band 1 legal advisor on the market of infrastructure and industrial projects. We look to the future with huge optimism. Our ambition is to make the best use of the existing potential and to maintain the position of a market leader for energy, industrial and infrastructure projects advice in Poland."
