On 1 December 2022, Mateusz Dereszyński joined the Polish office of Eversheds Sutherland as a Partner and Head of the Banking & Finance team.

Mateusz Dereszyński is an attorney-at-law specializing in providing transactional advice on debt financing to domestic and international clients, in all matters related to financing and banking. He has more than 18 years of experience in legal advisory for business.

Prior to joining Eversheds Sutherland, he worked for 15 years in the banking and finance team of a leading international law firm, where he led the real estate finance practice.

He has extensive expertise in real estate, corporate and acquisition financing transactions, acting for both financing parties and sponsors. His experience also includes structured financing and RES projects. He supports clients in debt securitization and debt securities issuance.

Mateusz participated in the pioneering implementation of one of the first major PPP projects in Poland for the construction and operation of a waste incineration plant in Poznan, Poland. For many years, Mateusz has been recommended by prestigious legal rankings (Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, Legal 500 EMEA).

Ewa Szlachetka, partner co-managing the Polish office of Eversheds Sutherland, said: “Eversheds Sutherland Poland has extensive experience in advising the banking sector and other financial institutions. We are a trusted transaction advisor for banks and their clients. Our team has recognized experience in real estate financing transactions and projects related to investing in renewable energy sources. Mateusz is a recognized lawyer experienced in all areas that are crucial for us, which allow us to further develop our current strategy. I keep my fingers crossed for the success of Mateusz and his team, which will soon be expanded by more specialists”.

Mateusz Dereszyński said: “I am very pleased to join a law firm with such a long presence on the Polish market and with such a wealth of experience. I can feel the positive energy here, and I am confident that I will be able to channel it into the dynamic development of our practice. I would like to rely as much as possible on a horizontal model of cooperation, and I hope that my previous experience in leading a team will help me in this. We see that the banking sector in Poland will once again face serious challenges, so it will be even more important to be able to adapt quickly and flexibly to the expectations of current clients and the market situation. In my opinion, Eversheds Sutherland is ideally placed to develop an offering that responds to these needs”.
