Hogan Lovells appoints new partner as head of Real Estate practice in Poland

LONDON, 1 May 2018 - Hogan Lovells has appointed Marek Grodek to its Warsaw office as the head of its Real Estate practice. Marek joins from Greenberg Taurig where he was a partner since 2012 and led their Real Estate practice in Poland.

With over 20 years' experience, Marek focuses his practice on commercial property development and property finance. Marek also has experience representing developers and property investors in disputes and arbitrations. He has a wide client base, acting in particular for large institutional investors from the U.S. and Canada.

Commenting on Marek's arrival, David Gibbons, Global Head of the Corporate Practice, said: "Marek is an outstanding fit for the firm's real estate industry sector and in taking the Warsaw real estate practice forward. He has significant capabilities in cross border real estate transactions, and he will be an asset to the firm in capturing U.S. outbound deal flow into Continental Europe."

With more than 400 lawyers in the Real Estate Industry Sector advising clients across four continents, Hogan Lovells has one of the strongest practices of the Global Elite Law firms with 38 partners, 11 counsels and 108 associates.

Jackie Newstead, Global Head of Hogan Lovells Real Estate Industry Sector, said: "The global outlook for real estate continues to be strong, despite temporary disruptions in some markets due to Brexit, with huge overseas and domestic capital flows expected to continue. Marek's high profile and international client base will be a key factor in growing our practice in Poland and cross selling our capabilities across Europe."

Beata Balas-Noszczyk, Office Managing Partner, Warsaw added: "There are very few top-level Polish real estate partners who have a wide international viewpoint and who are used to working with international clients. Marek is one of them. I am confident that with Marek's addition to our office, we will be in a strong position to take advantage of this market growth."
