act BSWW to move to new downtown office at Varso Place


act BSWW, one of Poland’s largest law firms and a member of the European act legal group, has leased over 2,000 square meters of the office space at Varso Place, considered among the most modern and prestigious multifunctional developments currently under construction in Poland, and boasting features that make it unique in Europe.

With the relocation scheduled for late 2020, the law firm is going to occupy two levels in one of the buildings emerging as part the project.

Our choice was based on a variety of factors, including the complex’s downtown location (right next to the Central Warsaw Railway Station), its prestigious nature and a broad range of amenities for our clients and staff, such as large parking capacity, high-end hotels, restaurants and modern retail units, says Michał Wielhorski, Managing Partner at act BSWW.

Among others, the complex is going to have a Zdrofit fitness club, a medical facility, a hotel, a dry-cleaning shop and grocery stores. The office buildings have direct access to the Złote Tarasy shopping mall and the Central Warsaw Railway Station.

We want the new seat of act BSWW to serve as act legal’s showpiece in Poland, adds Piotr Wojnar, Managing Partner at act BSWW.

Located in the very heart of Warsaw, Varso Place is a unique new development designed for business, residents and tourists. It is made up of three towers set along the western section of Chmielna street. Its most prominent feature will be the 310-meter-high tower about to become the European Union’s highest building.

We are glad to learn that our colleagues from Warsaw are moving to a complex featuring the tallest building in the European Union, currently being constructed by HB Reavis, a leading international developer with landmark projects across the EU, that also happens to be our client. Our Bratislava office is located in HB Reavis’ Twin City Tower, say Milan Malata and Vincent Hegedűš, Partners at act legal Slovakia.

The law firm provides ongoing legal services to businesses, consults on prestigious transactions and handles complex litigation.
