Two promotions to partner and a new tax practice leader at act BSWW, the Warsaw office of act legal

The group of partners of act BSWW has been joined by Iwona Kurylak and Łukasz Piekarski, both specialising in securities issue. The BSWW team has also grown by one more expert – Małgorzata Wąsowska who is a tax advisor with many years of experience gained, among others, in the Big Four.

“The corporate bond market in Poland has been growing steadily over the last few years thanks to relatively low interest rates. The debt market has also benefited from the stagnation on the share market. As a result of those two factors as well as deeper specialisation and expansion of the client portfolio of our law firm, our team handling security-related issues is growing strong. The fact that Iwona Kurylak and Łukasz Piekarski have been made partners is the natural consequence of our growing share in the security market,” said Piotr Smołuch, the leader of the security practice at act BSWW. “Tax-related issues are a material part of the business concerns of our Clients, in particular, in the current economic situation. It is important that the Clients feel that they are in good hands. Małgorzata Wąsowska is definitely a tax expert whom our Clients can trust completely,” he adds.

Iwona Kurylak is an attorney-at-law and a partner at act BSWW. She provides legal services with respect to issuance of securities, with particular emphasis on the issuance of secured bonds. Iwona has comprehensive experience in mergers and acquisitions (i.a., preparation of NDA, supervision and performance of a due diligence analysis, preparation and negotiation of transaction structure, preparation and negotiation of transaction documents, including investment contracts, share purchase agreements or agreements for the sale of undertakings/their organized parts/assets, preparation of contracts related to a joint venture). Iwona also participates in legal services related to bankruptcy law and restructuring processes. She also provides day-to-day corporate assistance to commercial companies, including listed companies. Her practice extends to capital markets law, commercial law as well as bankruptcy and reorganization law.

Łukasz Piekarski is an attorney-at-law and partner at act BSWW. Łukasz deals with the broad area of commercial and criminal law, including criminal-economic cases. He also possesses experience in civil and criminal litigation as well as advising on the issue of bonds.

Małgorzata Wąsowska has vast experience in tax advisory services in the field of M&A as well as share and asset deals. She has supervised and conducted a few dozen tax due diligence investigations, developed transaction structures, negotiated share purchase agreements and agreements regarding the sale of enterprises or organised parts of enterprises/their assets. In the years 2013-2015 she worked as the M&A manager.
