It is our pleasure to announce that, once again, GESSEL has been included in the annual Chambers Global ranking.

In what has become a proud tradition, we are distinguished in the Corporate/M&A category.

Chambers & Partners write:

What the team is known for: Dedicated M&A team with a strong standing in private equity, representing clients in mid-market and larger deals. Advises on M&A, management buyouts and corporate structuring. Active in a range of sectors including healthcare and IT. Also acts for domestic and regional private equity houses.


Proceeding to individual members of our team:

Beata Gessel-Kalinowska vel Kalisz is a regular panel appointee in arbitral proceedings. A source enthuses: "She acted for many years as a transactional lawyer, so has a good focus on the deals and how to settle them," adding that "she is very much business-oriented. She helps to settle a dispute effectively."

Leszek Koziorowski is an ECM lawyer assisting mid-sized companies with their preparation for domestic IPOs. Market commentators credit him for his long-standing practice and practical experience.

Marcin Macieszczak 's remit stretches from acquisitions and sales to investments and management buyouts, acting for clients hailing from the healthcare, pharmaceutical and private equity sectors. One client reports that "he understands the business, but the focus on the customer is what we appreciated the most," explaining that he is "interested in what we wanted to achieve."

Maciej Kożuchowski is valued by market commentators for his co-operative manner, one observing how he makes it "easy to find common solutions and a common understanding." He has been highly active of late for several financial services clients.

Małgorzata Badowska goes up in the rankings this year following strong client feedback and market visibility. As well as assisting with acquisitions and investments, she also advises clients on corporate structuring. Sources highlight her for her creative and out-of-the-box approach.

Krzysztof Marczuk enters the table this year following positive market feedback and visibility on the firm's key deals. He handles ECM matters, including prospectus preparation and stock exchange listings as well as public tender offers. He acts for a clientele of mid-market companies in healthcare and real estate.

We congratulate all our colleagues from other organisations who are also mentioned in Chambers Global 2020. We also take this opportunity to thank our Clients for their trust and for our shared successes.
