This year's "Law firms handling real estate transactions in 2018" report speaks of the record number of transactions – 74 (16 more than in the previous year), that took place in the Polish market. Dentons' lawyers completed almost half of the projects (34) included in the ranking.
The ranking covered all types of investments and corporate transactions including real estate acquisitions, divestments, leases and rentals, asset/share deals, joint ventures, loans, construction projects.
“Similarly to the previous edition, this year's report demonstrates the magnitude of our market share. Last year, the value of all transactions conducted in the commercial real estate sector in Poland amounted to €7.2 billion, half of those were projects carried out by our Real Estate practice. We are pleased that our clients have consistently put their trust in us to implement their major transactions. I would like to thank all our Real Estate lawyers for their effort and commitment." said partner Paweł Dębowski, Head of the Europe Real Estate practice group.
Earlier this year, Dentons’ Real Estate team in Poland received a top tier practice ranking by international legal directory Chambers Europe 2019. Practice head Pawel Debowski received the highest possible lawyer ranking, while Piotr Szafarz, Monika Sitowicz, Maciej Ryniewicz and Michał Siwek were also recognized as leading lawyers. Paweł Dębowski also received a “Lifetime Achievement in Real Estate” accolade at the CEE Quality Awards (CEEQA) and was hailed as the leading lawyer in real estate law by Rzeczpospolita.
