    The European Legal 500 in its 2008 edition recommends Wierzbowski Eversheds in almost every researched law area: banking & finance, capital markets, competition/antitrust, corporate and M&A, dispute resolution, employment, intellectual property, projects and real estate.

    Editorial quotes:

    „Wierzbowski Eversheds advises on securitisations and recently worked on a project aimed at increasing the value of leasing receivables, as well as advising HSBC in relation to the distribution of fund units. Grzegorz Kott is recommended.”

    “The ‘responsive and flexible’ Wierzbowski Eversheds is focused on EU work within the telecoms and food sectors, including compliance and regulatory assistance, cartel matters and abuse of dominant positions. Unfair competition expert Małgorzata Modzelewska de Raad acted for Syngenta Crop Protection in a precedent-setting antimonopoly case, and regulatory telco lawyers Krzysztof Wierzbowski and Arwid Mednis are also recommended.”

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds acts on complex corporate restructurings, provides solid day-to-day commercial law advice and delivers ‘outstanding performances’. It counts Bristol-Myers Squibb, Gallo Vineyards, Hachette and AstraZeneca Pharma as commercial clients and Invido AB, Burda and ERIKS have used the firm for acquisitions. Bożena Ciosek is a key corporate contact, Michał Kurzyński an M&A practitioner and Grzegorz Kott looks after the insurance practice. Associate Przemyslaw Walasek provides ‘very practical advice that is of high legal quality’.”

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds’ Henryk Romańczuk is a respected real estate litigator and the department is busy conducting a trial a day in a range of commercial, administrative, IP, energy and infrastructure disputes. Literally hundreds of cases are pending and the practice represented GDDKIA on an international arbitration concerning the construction of the A4 highway. Zbigniew Gaj is recommended for insolvency.” Zbigniew Gaj is Of Counsel to Wierzbowski Eversheds.

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds takes employment matters seriously, acting on labour restructurings, lay-offs and SEZ matters. Ewa Łachowska-Brol is the key contact and Whirlpool, Wizzair and Opera Software are clients.”

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds has a strong presence within the telecoms and IT sectors and acts on franchise operations for retail and brand holders and on information protection issues. Magdalena Orzelska-Bratkowska, the ‘professional and well-educated’ Tomasz Zalewski and Arwid Mednis are key contacts.”

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds is noted for its ‘volume of government representation’ and involvement as legal adviser and project coordinator during the 2012 UEFA European Championships bid. It works on highways projects and infrastructure transactions for major cities and is very focused on EU-related work.”

    “Wierzbowski Eversheds’ Henryk Romańczuk is recommended for property litigation while on the transactional side the key partner is Michał Kurzyński. The group advised developer 8 Star on the sale of the Eurocentrum office building in central Warsaw, represented the University of Kraków on the PPP development of a new University hospital and keeps busy with leisure, retail, warehouse and office work. Alvi Corp is another client.”
