As of 1 April 2020 the group of partners of the Polish office of Eversheds Sutherland were joined by Michał Markowski, who heads the firm’s banking and finance practice, and Maciej Jóźwiak, head of the dispute resolution practice. Anna Kasnowska-Lisowska, Michał Miąskiewicz and Błażej Grochowski were promoted to senior associate.

Michał Markowski is an attorney-at-law and has worked at the firm since 2016. He has over a decade of experience providing legal advice to businesses. He specializes in providing legal support for project finance transactions. In recent years he has succeeded in building up the firm’s advice for the financial sector, expanding the firm’s portfolio of clients to include leading banks on the Polish market. He has completed numerous large, legally and commercially complex projects. He has consistently expanded the banking and finance practice toward project finance transactions. Apart from transactional banking, he has also expanded the team across other areas, such as banking regulation, the payment sector, and projects combining finance and new technologies with a chance to revolutionize the Polish financial and FinTech sector.

Maciej Jóźwiak, affiliated with the firm since 2008, specializes in representing clients in judicial proceedings. He also handles arbitration cases and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. At the European level he participates in proceedings before the General Court and the Court of Justice, and also appears before domestic and international arbitral tribunals. He has successfully grown the practice he leads, which has consistently expanded into other fields such as white-collar crime and compliance, bringing in new experts to work with the team. Under his leadership the team pursues numerous judicial disputes of varying profiles, and also resolves disputes using ADR methods, on many occasions reaching advantageous settlements for clients. In recent years the practice has reinforced its position advising leading air carriers, as the firm’s Aviation Desk serves a larger and larger group of clients from this sector. Two other lawyers in the team headed by Maciej have also advanced.

Anna Kasnowska-Lisowska is an attorney affiliated with Eversheds Sutherland Wierzbowski since 2015. She initially worked for the FMCG market, but now on the dispute resolution team serves key clients from the aviation industry, including representation of airlines in proceedings involving passenger complaints. She has experience leading disputes before the state courts and arbitration courts in civil and commercial matters. Her practice is focused on advising on resolution of disputes between businesses, at the pre-litigation stage, at trial, and in enforcement proceedings. Michał Miąskiewicz is an attorney on the dispute resolution team, affiliated with the firm since 2018. He specializes in representing clients in judicial and arbitration proceedings, particularly in the area of civil and commercial law. He provides legal support in bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings, and in obtaining interim relief and enforcement of judgments. He represents global clients of Eversheds Sutherland in cross-border proceedings. His experience covers in particular disputes over payments in infrastructure projects, including claims administration. He works for leading companies from the FMCG, energy, automotive, aviation and banking sectors.

Błażej Grochowski is an attorney on the commercial team, affiliated with the firm since 2012. He specializes in contractual, regulatory and consumer aspects of trade in products, including FMCG, electronics and clothing, as well as sensitive goods (medicinal products and medical devices). He supports businesses in negotiation and drafting of supply, sales and service agreements and security for contract performance. He prepares analyses on marketing requirements, particularly issues of product quality and safety. He advises on aspects of businesses’ dealings with consumers, including such areas as regulation of e-commerce, the internet of things, promotions, and post-sale product liability, particularly warranty and guarantee claims. He also handles issues of clinical trials and legal aspects of new technologies in the healthcare system, particularly telemedicine and personalized medicine.
