We are happy to announce that our firm has been named among the finalists of the 2020 iteration of the Polish Private Equity Association (PSIK) Award in the Legal Advisor of the Year category.

The competition aims to honour managers of private equity / venture capital funds, consultancies, banks, and counsel for their achievements in the Polish private equity / venture capital markets.

GESSEL’s place on the shortlist is no accident – over the space of 12 months, our lawyers have completed over 30 transactions, of which 15 involved investments or exits of PE/VC funds. We worked, among others, with Enterprise Investors on their sale of Danwood and of 3S, with AVALLON on its purchase of Clovin, with Highlander Partners on its sale of Akomex, with Przelewy24 as it forged its strategic alliance with Nets, and with BNP Paribas on its investments in Asprod and Dafo Plastics.

The Polish Private Equity Association PSIK assembles private equity/venture capital investors active in Poland as well as individuals, companies, and institutions working towards development of the PE/VE sector in the country.
