The CMS Poland real estate and construction team has received the prestigious “Law Firm of the Year” award granted each year as part of the Eurobuild Awards. The jury composed of over 40 members includes representatives of top real estate companies. The “Law Firm of the Year” award reflects the profile of the clients and the scale of the projects carried out by the firm, the broad spectrum of its legal advisory services as well as the recognition and reputation of the team.
Despite immense competition and challenging conditions on the real estate market, our real estate and construction team led by partner Wojciech Koczara, focused on growth. Two years ago the department consisted of 23 employees. Today, the team is made up of more than 33 lawyers in Warsaw and in Poznań, including five partners (apart from Wojciech Koczara, also Wojciech Szybkowski, Lidia Dziurzyńska-Leipert, Anna Brzoza-Ostrowska and Przemysław Kucharski) who take pride in having completed such projects as:
- Rondo 1 – legal advisory services for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management in relation to the purchase of a prestigious office building;
- legal advisory for Pramerica Real Estate International and Panattoni Europe in relation to the sale of a real estate portfolio consisting of seven logistics projects (5 in Poland and 2 in the Czech Republic);
- legal advisory for Standard Life Investments in relation to the sale of a portfolio of four logistic facilities in Poland – one of the largest projects on the logistics services market in Poland in 2014.
“We are very happy to have been named “Law Firm of the Year” said Wojciech Koczara. "It is an important form of recognition in the real estate sector. We are proud of our lawyers and the projects we work on – and I am very glad that the strength of our team has been recognised by the industry. We are grateful to our clients for their trust and for involving us in key projects. We are currently preparing for further significant transactions and I believe that you will continue to hear a lot about us.”
