Gide Poland strengthens its capital markets practice

February 2015

Mateusz Chmielewski has considerable international experience in providing legal advice on capital markets transactions. He has advised leading financial companies and institutions on important private and public offerings of shares, bond issues (including high-yield bonds and convertible bonds), as well as medium-term bond programmes. Mateusz Chmielewski graduated in law from the University of Warsaw and the University of Cambridge. Before joining Gide, he worked for Greenberg Traurig in Warsaw, and before that, as a solicitor in the London and Singapore offices of Ashurst. After returning to Poland, Mateusz Chmielewski worked on many of the largest IPOs and secondary offerings of shares.

In March, Gide will also be joined by Dorota Jenerowicz, an advocate with extensive experience in capital markets, who previously worked for Greenberg Traurig.

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome Mateusz and Dorota to our team. I am convinced that their experience and expertise will help us to further develop the capital markets practice in Gide's Warsaw office, which will henceforth operate as a stand-alone department headed by Mateusz Chmielewski," said Dariusz Tokarczuk, partner in charge of Gide Warsaw.

"Gide has a strong international capital markets practice, which is especially dynamic in Europe. I am sure that, through combining our experience and knowledge, we can offer top quality legal services for capital transactions at both local and international levels," added Mateusz Chmielewski.
