CRIDO developing M&A practice

On September 1, 2021, Przemysław Furmaga, who will be the partner responsible for the M&A practice, has joined CRIDO Legal. He brings with him Aleksandra Czarnecka and Andrzej Dunikowski, who will hold senior associate positions.

Przemysław Furmaga will be responsible for developing the legal advisory practice in the area of ​​mergers and acquisitions. As a new partner at CRIDO Legal he has many years of experience in running domestic and cross-border M&A projects, which he gained mainly at DZP law firm, recently as a partner in M&A team . In acquisitions, he represented clients on both the sellers and buyers’ side. He has worked with international corporations, private equity funds and private entrepreneurs. He has also advised on management buyout transactions and in corporate disputes.

Aleksandra Czarnecka and Andrzej Dunikowski have also joined the M&A team, both holding senior associate positions. Before joining CRIDO, Andrzej cooperated with Przemysław at DZP, the law firm for which Aleksandra has worked in the past as well.

As leader of the M&A team, I will focus on further developing this practice, in particular in ​​servicing Polish entrepreneurs on acquisition projects, both on the “sell” and “buy” side, including foreign acquisitions, as well as in transactions involving PE and VC funds. Our team consists of experienced experts, so I am sure that we will provide clients with the highest level of support in every aspect of the M&A process, and that we will work on many projects at the same time – says Przemysław Furmaga, partner at CRIDO Legal.

M&A projects are an important part of CRIDO’s activities, which is why we are building a strong team of specialists in this field. In cooperation with tax advisory and corporate finance teams as well as the modelling and valuation team, our lawyers will be able to support clients not only in legal but also business matters. We know that M&A projects are complex, multi-threaded, require an individual approach and look at a given transaction from a broader perspective. This is how we want to help our clients. We are seeing a buoyant market right now, so we are convinced that this is a good time to develop services in this area – says Jakub Ziółek, managing partner of CRIDO Legal.

More lawyers will be joining the M&A team in October.
