Filip Grzesiak joined Caelum Real Estate Asset Management (C.R.E.A.M.) as its new Head of Legal in Warsaw.
Grzesiak, who will be responsible for legal aspects of real estate management including investment advisory, joins from Crido Legal, where he was a Senior Associate. Prior to Crido Legal, he worked for CMS Cameron McKenna as an Associate for over 2 years, preceded by Miller Canfield, where he spent 6 years, first as a Junior Associate and later as an Associate. Earlier still, he was a Trainee with the ING Nationale Nederlanden Law Department.
In his previous role with Crido Legal, Grzesiak worked on advising Exact Systems (part of the Work Service Group) in connection with the acquisition of two companies – Control + Rework Service Poland Sp. z o.o. and Control + Rework Service NV (reported on by CEE Legal Matters on September 23, 2015), assisting the KRUK Group in its acquisition of the Presco Investments company (reported on by CEE Legal Matters on November 6, 2015), and advising Astris on the construction of a class A office building in Krakow (reported on by CEE Legal Matters on November 30, 2015).
Commenting on the move, Grzesiak said: "The change was long desired. Being the part of the process from the inside and to witness the growth of the business was always intriguing to me. Working for law firms we are just part of the process even if very important. I simply wanted to become part of the business. C.R.E.A.M. gave me this opportunity and a chance to work in an international environment with young and dedicated team.”
