Lawyer Rankings

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‘.
