K&L Gates has advised Chinese construction and engineering company China Overseas Engineering Group Co., Ltd (Covec) in the resolution of a dispute with the Polish General Directorate of National Roads and Motorways related to the construction of sections of the A2 Motorway between Lodz and Warsaw, in Poland.

The A2 Motorway was intended to allow football fans to travel to EURO 2012, which Poland hosted for the first time. Covec won the tender in 2009, making it the first Chinese company to win a tender for the construction of a European motorway. According to K&L Gates, "the works were not completed, leading to a dispute between the parties with claims exceeding PLN 1 billion."

The K&L Gates team that helped obtain what the firm describes as "the historic settlement agreement in the dispute" was led by Construction and Infrastructure partner Joanna Lagowska and included Senior Associates Dawid Rapkiewicz and Joanna Gasowski and Associates Michał Szumbarski and Lukasz Gembis.
