Tomasz Stasiak has joined the Warsaw office of the Wolf Theiss law firm as a partner and head of the office’s Real Estate & Construction Practice Group. The appointment of Tomasz, a leading real estate lawyer in Poland, is another step in Wolf Theiss’ continued expansion in central Europe’s largest economy and its response to the growing demand for legal advisory services in Poland’s booming real estate market.
Tomasz Stasiak has 19 years of experience on the Polish real estate market, acting for international investors and developers and participating in a number of landmark transactions. He has been involved in all stages of property projects, from purchasing land, through commissioning contractors and consultants and arranging for funding and leasing, to sale of completed projects. Prior to joining Wolf Theiss, Tomasz was a partner in the Warsaw office of Dentons, and he has previously worked at Clifford Chance and CMS Cameron McKenna.
“I’ve been truly privileged to have worked with best-in-class real estate professionals my entire career, and I look forward to continuing that at Wolf Theiss, one of the most dynamic law firms in Poland and in all of Central and South-Eastern Europe,” said Stasiak. “With offices in all CEE/SEE capitals, Wolf Theiss provides a strong option for market participants who appreciate international quality combined with local excellence and a commercial mindset.”
“The arrival of Tomasz is another important step in our strategy for significant growth of the real estate and construction practice at Wolf Theiss Warsaw,” added Grzegorz Skowronski, counsel and the senior member of the existing Real Estate & Construction team at Warsaw’s Wolf Theiss office. “Together with Tomasz we will further develop our Warsaw practice as an extremely professional, reliable and business-orientated team. I look forward to working with Tomasz in expanding our practice locally and throughout the firm as a whole.”
Joining Tomasz at Wolf Theiss from Dentons is Iwona Huryn, a senior associate who has also been an important player on the Polish real estate scene for many years. With the arrival of Tomasz and Iwona, the Wolf Theiss team dedicated full-time to the real estate practice includes six lawyers with planned additions already in the works.
“Although the real estate market continues to shine throughout our CEE/SEE footprint, Poland has a special sparkle,” said Peter Oberlechner, head of the firm’s Real Estate Practice. “We are delighted to have earned a position in the narrowing circle of firms handling engagements of significance, and the addition of Tomasz and his colleague sends the clear message that Wolf Theiss is striving to build up the leading CEE/SEE real estate practice. We are very pleased with the direction our Warsaw Co-Managing partners, Peter Daszkowski and Ron Given, are leading our office there and we are confident they will keep it up.”
