Former Schoenherr Partner and Head of Real Estate in Poland Marta Bijak-Haiduk has joined Deloitte Legal as a Partner, along with a team of lawyers. Bijak-Haiduk will be leading the Deloitte Legal real estate advisory team, starting January 2022.
Also joining Deloitte Legal’s real estate sector are Local Partners Dominik Gorski and Dominika Sulak-Seyfried, Senior Managing Associate Patrycja Czarnecka, Senior Associate Anna Jablonska, and Associates Enrika Gawlowska and Emilia Kubiszyn.
According to Deloitte, Bijak-Haiduk has been specializing in legal advice for the real estate sector for thirteen years, "in particular on issues related to the investment process, various structures of real estate projects, and the acquisition of real estate."
Bijak-Haiduk joined Schoenherr in 2020 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 17, 2020). She had previously spent over seven years with Hogan Lovells and almost three years with Linklaters.
Former Schoenherr Senior Attorney Sulak-Seyfried is a graduate of the University of Warsaw. Prior to joining Deloitte Legal, she spent over two years with TGC Corporate Lawyers, almost seven with BSJP, over three years with Hogan Lovells, and almost two with Schoenherr.
Gorski joins from Atrium European Real Estate, where he was a Real Estate Legal Counsel since 2018. Prior to that, he spent almost two years with Clifford Chance, five and a half with Dentons, and over two years with Linklaters.
"I see a great opportunity for Deloitte Legal to become the leading player on the dynamically developing market of legal advisory services for the real estate sector," comments Bijak-Haiduk. "My vision matches the company’s growth strategy and thus I strongly believe that together with the team we will be able to significantly expand the real estate practice of Deloitte Legal."
"The expansion of the Deloitte Legal team is closely related to a growing interest in real estate law services from our clients," added Tomasz Ostrowski, Managing Partner of Deloitte Legal Poland. "We have been conducting more and more transactions of this type, and the demand of the real estate market will most likely strengthen this trend. Our objective is to create as extensive an offering as possible and Marta and her team will help us deliver it."
