    On 1 September 2014, Ewa Szlachetka became a partner at Wierzbowski Eversheds, where she will head the Mergers & Acquisitions practice.

    Ewa Szlachetka is an attorney at law with years of experience conducting significant transactions, for which she provided legal support while working with prominent law firms. She specializes in corporate law, legal support for mergers and acquisitions, including acquisitions of public companies, and restructuring of capital groups. She also handles transactions by private equity and venture capital funds.

    She is a graduate of the Faculty of Law and Administration at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.

    According to Krzysztof Wierzbowski, managing partner of Wierzbowski Eversheds: “While continuing our work on international transactions, including within the Eversheds network, we have decided to increase our activity on the local SME market, where we perceive opportunities for growth of our business as the number of local M&A deals is steadily growing. We are confident that bringing on board such an experienced expert as Ewa Szlachetka will strengthen and solidify the position of our law firm on the M&A market.”

    Ewa Szlachetka, the partner in charge of the Mergers & Acquisitions practice at Wierzbowski Eversheds, commented: “The M&A market in Poland is constantly changing. Clients seek increasingly innovative, non-standard paths to business growth, continually presenting new challenges for their legal advisers. I believe that with the international experience of the Eversheds network and our familiarity with the Polish reality, we are in a position to offer clients comprehensive services at the highest level.”
