PROMINENT PROJECT FINANCE PARTNER JOINS MAGNUSSON IN POLAND

2016-06-23

Magnusson reinforces its project finance capabilities with the hire of highly experienced Marek Król who joins as a partner based in the Warsaw office.

Marek Król is admitted in Poland as a legal advisor (pl. radca prawny). He focuses on banking and finance, including in particular project finance, investment financing, M&A financing, as well as on capital markets, energy and natural resources.

He advises both domestic and international corporations from the chemical, petrochemical and power industries, large Polish and foreign banks as well as investment and securitization funds. His experience also includes advice on financing of numerous development and residential projects across Poland. On a regular basis he acts as lead counsel in projects involving multiple jurisdictions.

Prior to joining Magnusson Marek Król worked, among others, for three major international law firms, where he headed up their banking and finance practices in Poland. His experience also includes working at KPMG as head of the banking advisory division, as well as the director of the legal and project finance departments at large Polish banks.

For a number of years Marek Król has been continuously recommended in the area of banking and finance in Poland by all the major global rankings of lawyers. Among others, he has been recommended in this field by Chambers Global for more than a decade (2004-2016), with other rankings including Chambers Europe, IFLR 1000, and The Legal 500 EMEA.

“The arrival of such a high profile player as Marek Król gives a boost to our project finance capabilities. He will be a tremendous addition to the team and a great asset to our clients”, comments Agnieszka Pytlas-Skwierczyńska, Managing Partner of Magnusson in Poland.

“Magnusson offers a compelling blend of strong capabilities on both domestic and international levels. I am looking forward to exploring new opportunities both in Poland and the entire region”, stated Marek Król, Partner.

With the arrival of Marek Król, Magnusson continues to bolster its practice in Poland. In January 2016, Tomasz Rysiak was appointed as a tax and restructuring partner, what has been followed in April 2016 with the hire of partner Daniel Klementewicz who joined to head up the dispute resolution practice of the Warsaw office.
