Jakub CelińskiDentons

Dentons has a broad practice that stands out for equity capital markets, although it is also active on the debt and derivatives side. The group is also able to handle regulatory work; one notable example involved assisting GPW Benchmark with obtaining authorisation from the Polish Financial Supervision Authority to administer all indices of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Elsewhere, a large part of the work relates to public M&A. Jakub Celiński leads the equity capital markets group for the Europe region, and also leads the wider capital markets department in Warsaw. Marcin Bartczak is recommended for his regulatory expertise, as is thought-leader Aleksander Chłopecki.
