We have the pleasure of presenting to you GESSEL’s first M&A yearbook, setting out a summary of what has been a very busy, but also very successful 2017. The hard work of our entire M&A team found fruition in over 20 transactions in which GESSEL brought its expert knowledge to bear on either the seller’s or the buyer’s sides. This large number of transactions, might we say, testifies to our overall expertise – a combination of the legal knowledge, creativity, practical experience, and pragmatic business acumen cultivated over the 25 years of GESSEL’s existence, expertise which is eloquently affirmed by numerous awards and distinctions for our firm as a whole and for individual members of our legal team in prestigious rankings such as Chambers Global, Europe Chambers, or CEE M&A Awards (in the Poland Law Firm category).

The yearbook is intended to highlight and describe a selection of projects executed in 2017, not only from our own perspective, but also that of the respective Clients. It also sets out some observations and projections about future trends by GESSEL experts from the fields of tax law, competition law, banking and finance and arbitration.                

We take this opportunity to once again thank our Clients for their trust and for the opportunity to contribute to these projects. We do hope that 2018 will be an equally exciting one in the realm of M&A.

Happy reading !
