Former Baker McKenzie Counsel Tomasz Kaczmarek has joined DWF Warsaw as Local Partner and head of Transactional Banking.

According to DWF, Kaczmarek, who spent over 13 years with Baker McKenzie, "has strong expertise in project finance, property finance and acquisition finance, advising Polish and international banks, mezzanine funds, financial and industry lenders and sponsors. His focus is on financing of real estate (office, retail, hotel, warehouse and residential), renewables (wind farms and PVs) and innovation. He is also an expert in restructuring and insolvency, frequently advising on financial restructuring."

His arrival to DWF comes just days after the firm announced that Pawel Stykowski had joined from Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland to lead the firm's Insurance practice (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 19, 2019).

"Tomasz is a talented legal counsel with experience across sectors such as real estate, energy, infrastructure and innovation, which aligns perfectly to many of the sectors in which DWF has deep expertise," said Michal Pawlowski, DWF's Managing Partner in Poland. "We are delighted to welcome him as a local partner heading the transactional banking team in Warsaw."

"The chance to join DWF at such an early stage in its progression into the Polish market is an exciting opportunity given the business has such a strong reputation as a fast-growing, innovative legal services provider," commented Kaczmarek. "I look forward to contributing to the future success of DWF in Poland through the sustainable growth of the banking and finance transactional team in Warsaw."
