act BSWW has advised Heli Aviation Service Sp. z o.o. on the purchase of the state-of-the-art AW169 helicopter manufactured by Leonardo S.p.A., an Italian company that is the worldwide industry leader (formerly AgustaWestland). Belonging to the AWFamily of products, the AW169 is the latest-generation 4.5 tonne class twin-engine helicopter.
Lawyers from act BSWW were supporting Heli Aviation Service Sp. z o.o. throughout the process of helicopter acquisition. The scope of services included support in negotiations and deal closing, as well as delivery and registration of the first AW169 model in Poland. The project was handled by Marek Wojnar, attorney-at-law and one of the Managing Partners leading the law firm’s Italian Desk. He was supported by Magdalena Piotrowska, trainee legal counsel.
“We are pleased with the confidence our partners placed in us. Purchase of a helicopter is generally a challenging transaction, even more so when it has to be carried out under complex actual or legal circumstances. In this case, we had to cooperate (among others) with a partnering law firm from the UK. This is yet another example of a comprehensive range of activities taken by our Italian Desk which does not only work with Italian investors in Poland, but also supports Polish investors in their transactions in Italy,” says Marek Wojnar.
