Former Squire Patton Boggs Of Counsel Michal Smolny has joined the Polish office of Eversheds Sutherland as a Partner and the Head of the firm's Real Estate practice as of January 2, 2023.

Specializing in real estate and energy, Smolny was an Of Counsel and Co-Head of Real Estate at Squire Patton Boggs from 2019 to 2023. Earlier, he spent over 12 years with Allen & Overy, first as an Associate and then as a Senior Associate from 2010 to 2019.

According to Eversheds Sutherland, the firm’s Real Estate practice was previously a part of the Real Estate and Infrastructure Projects practice led by Krzysztof Wierzbowski. "According to the firm's newly adopted organizational structure, Krzysztof Wierzbowski will remain Head of the Infrastructure Projects Practice," the firm informed. "The two partners will work closely together since the scopes of their practices do overlap."

"While welcoming Michal and wishing him much success in his new professional role, I would like to thank Krzysztof Wierzbowski, who remains an undisputed authority in the fields of real estate and infrastructure," Eversheds Sutherland Poland Managing Partner Ewa Lachowska-Brol commented. "Krzysztof has been developing these areas for many years, working on countless, often pioneering and strategic investments in the Polish market, thus consistently building our firm's reputation."

"I am very pleased to join the firm and take the lead of the Real Estate team," Smolny added. "The positive energy and commitment of the partners and the entire team to work with me allows me to look to the next year with great optimism and focus on the needs of the firm's clients."
