Wierzbowski Eversheds has been joined by Patryk Galicki, of counsel, who will head the law firm’s real estate practice. Kamil Lewandowski is joining the real estate team with him as an associate.

Both of the new Wierzbowski Eversheds lawyers were previously affiliated with a leading international law firm, where they practised together on the same team.

Patryk Galicki is an attorney at law and for over 15 years has advised Polish and foreign clients across the whole range of real estate and corporate law. He has worked in international law firms, where among other things he led the real estate and M&A practices. He has advised on dozens of multi-million-dollar transactions involving purchase and sale of office, industrial and retail properties throughout Poland, including real estate sale-and-leaseback transactions. He has supported clients in financing and refinancing of real estate projects as well as restructuring processes. He has also conducted a range of M&A deals. He is valued by clients as a specialist and for many years has been recommended by prominent international rankings.

Kamil Lewandowski is an attorney at law and specializes in real estate law. In his professional experience he has advised on real estate development projects, including involvement in dozens of real estate acquisition and financing transactions. He also advises on administrative proceedings connected with the development process, reprivatization claims, and landmark protection law. He is experienced in negotiating leases for retail and office space, construction contracts, and design contracts. He also advises on investments in new-technology companies (venture capital).

“I am pleased to take on the task of leading the real estate practice at Wierzbowski Eversheds,” said Patryk Galicki. “The combination of the excellent skills of the real estate team with my own extensive experience and the possibilities provided by the global Eversheds network enables us to offer Polish and international clients comprehensive legal support of the highest quality.”

Krzysztof Wierzbowski, managing partner of Wierzbowski Eversheds, commented: “Patryk Galicki will lead a practice of ours which over the years has developed a strong market position. I believe that thanks to both these new lawyers, we will continue to strengthen the practice, expanding the services offered to our current clients, many of whom we also support in the real estate field, and gaining cooperation with new clients. We are inspired to be joined by such experienced specialists, highly regarded by clients. Reinforcement of our real estate practice is one of a series of recent major changes at our firm. Near the end of 2015 we launched our regulatory risk and compliance practice and gained a new head of the competition practice.”
