Lawyer Rankings

Poland > Private equity

Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp. k. is known for prestige private equity transactions; in 2021 it advised Cinven, Permira and Mid Europa Partners on their exit from Allegro, leading to one of the year’s most notable IPOs. In addition to private equity, the firm has built an impressive venture capital offering, led by Aleksander Janiszewski, handling equity rounds and convertible debt matters. Lejb Fogelman heads the group. Stephen Horvath  is another transactional veteran with cross-border investment and exit experience. Jarosław Grzesiak left the firm.

Poland > Commercial, corporate and M&A

At Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp. k., former practice head Jarosław Grzesiak left the firm in 2021 to take up a board position at Polsat. Notwithstanding this development, the firm still remains a heavyweight name in the Polish legal market and its team continues to stand out in major transactions in Poland and further afield across the CEE region. Lejb Fogelman now co-chairs the team with Rafal Baranowski, who has a strong track-record in domestic and cross-border M&A and private equity deals. Stephen Horvath is a well-established specialist in regional acquisitions. Łukasz Pawlak and Michał Bobrzyński are considered by clients to be ‘true specialists in their field‘.
