CMS has received the “Diamonds of Polish Chemistry” award (Diamenty Polskiej Chemii) for best legal advisor of 2014. This prestigious award is granted at the Chemical Industry Forum & Awards Gala, organised by the Executive Club.
A jury of experts grants the award to distinguished individuals and companies who have contributed to strengthening the Polish chemical industry’s competitiveness and international reputation.
“The Polish chemical industry is at an interesting moment – on the one hand, large scale innovative investments are being made, while on the other hand it faces numerous challenges, such as high energy consumption and dependence on raw material supplies which, in the current economic and political situation, significantly impact the development of the industry. Regulatory issues at the national and EU level are also important. They hugely affect the outlook for the industry and require skilful management of legal risk,” says Karolina Siedlik, CMS partner responsible for legal advice in the chemical industry.
CMS cooperates with leading chemical and petrochemical companies in Poland, providing advice on regulatory matters and investment projects at every stage of implementation (including financing), as well as on environmental issues.
Last year, CMS began working on the largest chemicals projects in Poland, in cooperation with Grupa Azoty Zakłady Chemiczne Police S.A. and PKN Orlen, among others.
In addition to providing consulting services to Polish and international companies in the chemical industry, CMS is an active member of PIPC, acting in the Commission on Sustainable Development.
