Warsaw Banking & Finance

Greenberg Traurig has one of the leading banking and finance practices in Poland, currently ranked in Tier I by International Financial Law Review. Our attorneys advise lenders (e.g., Polish and foreign banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions), corporate borrowers (e.g., the largest Polish and international corporations) and private equity sponsors. Our attorneys have participated in some of the largest and most complex domestic and cross-border financing transactions in Poland to date.

In our Warsaw office we have lawyers qualified to advise clients on Polish, English, and New York law. Whenever required, lawyers from the Warsaw office cooperate closely with colleagues from London and the USA.

Within the banking and finance area we advise on:

  • complex financings, including syndicated, leveraged, acquisition, and LOC facilities
  • real estate financing
  • financial restructuring and bankruptcy
  • debt capital market transactions (including high yield) and securitizations
  • bank mergers & acquisitions and restructuring, including related regulatory matters
  • other financial regulatory matters

In the area of bank mergers & acquisitions, including related regulatory matters, we have unparalleled experience in the Polish legal market. We have represented clients in almost all major mergers & acquisitions in the banking sector in Poland in the last 25 years.

We also represent banks and other financial institutions in disputes and proceedings before Polish civil courts (including the Supreme Court of Poland), administrative courts (including the Polish Supreme Administrative Court), the Polish financial regulator (Komisja Nadzoru Finansowego – Financial Supervision Authority) and other agencies.
