CMS advises freight forwarding family business

7 October 2016

CMS advised the owners of Allcom sp. z o.o., a family-owned freight forwarding company with its registered office in Gdynia, in the process of joining Hili Company’s logistics family. Allcom sp. z o.o. is a Polish freight forwarding company and customs agency, active on the market since 1995.

Thanks to acquisition of Allcom sp. z o.o., Hili Company intends to increase its competitive advantage due to Allcom’s continuous and long-term presence in Poland and its wide international contacts. As part of Hili Company, Allcom sp. z o.o. will gain access to major transport hubs across Europe. Paweł Skriabin, the current managing director, will continue to lead Allcom sp. z o.o.

"By joining Hili Company, Allcom sp. z o.o benefits from support for long-term development and business expansion, access to additional markets, expertise and know-how" - emphasises Izabela Gębal, Legal Advisor and Senior Associate at CMS. “Today, a lot of Polish family businesses established shortly after the 1989 economic transformation are approaching the generational change. A decision to hand over the business is usually very complex and multi-threaded, and therefore requires excellent preparation”.

Joanna Błaszczyk, counsel, and Izabela Gębal, senior associate from CMS Warsaw provided legal advice with regard to the private transaction. The project was supervised by Michał Pawłowski, partner.
