He specialises in regulatory advice for the energy and climate change sector and contractual law advice for companies operating in the energy and climate change and chemical sectors. His experience includes advising on the development of infrastructure projects, including new power units and the development of power plants (CHP, coal-fired units, renewable energy), on the extension of the National Power System, the construction of chemical facilities under EPC contracts (new polypropylene facility in Poland). Michal has also prepared and advised on the negotiations for construction contracts, FEED contracts, the negotiation of long-term electric energy and heat sale agreements and the negotiation of service agreements, as well as supply agreements and agreements for the provision of services in multi-contracting projects.

Michal has also participated in work on amendments to instructions for the operation and maintenance of the transmission system, and advised on issues related to cross-border electricity exchange.

Michał has also provided advice to Polish and foreign companies on investments related to renewable energy sources (including offshore), in particular within the scope of interconnection agreements.

He has published articles concerning various regulatory issues related to the development of the capacity market in Poland, the regulation of gas and energy tariffs, TSO rights regarding market balancing, and the legal amendments required to simplify the investment process in Poland. In cooperation with the A. Mickiewicz University in Poznań, each year he organises a competition for students related to Energy law.
