SMM LEGAL MAKES MAJOR ADDITIONS TO STRENGTHEN ITS ENERGY LAW DEPARTMENT
SMM Legal is pleased to announce that it has added two energy law experts: Mr. Michał Tarka and Mr. Marcin Trupkiewicz, who have joined our Firm together with their team, TTW Legal. In response to the growing demand for legal services in the Polish energy sector, which is undergoing a major transformation, we have combined the experience of the two law firms with top expertise in this field. Both Mr. Tarka and Mr. Trupkiewicz became SMM Legal Partners.
New SMM Legal Partners are highly specialised lawyers focusing on the energy and gas sectors, with particular expertise regarding renewable energy sources. Their specialty spans prosumer and professional solar energy generation, biogas and biomethane, clean heat generation, as well as onshore and offshore wind farms.
‘The energy sector is one of the key areas of our expertise at SMM Legal’, says Mr. Przemysław Maciak, Managing Partner.
Our Firm has been advising top market players and has handled the biggest market transactions in the energy sector, including the merger of PKN ORLEN S.A. and Grupa LOTOS S.A. or the tender offer for the shares of GK Energa S.A. announced by PKN ORLEN S.A.
‘We know the rules that govern the energy sector. However, we continuously strive to improve our services and seek the best solutions for our clients. This is why we decided to strengthen our team by welcoming new experts’, adds Mr. Maciak.
‘The RES sector, interpreted broadly, is the future of the Polish energy sector. We see our merger with SMM Legal as a chance to build a leading energy team in the market’, explains Mr. Michał Tarka, new Partner at SMM Legal.
The strengths of the TTW Legal team are its extensive experience and highly specialised expertise.
‘Our lawyers will contribute to SMM Legal their knowledge of the latest trends and innovative investment models applied in the dynamically developing RES sector. What is more, they will strengthen the team’s competences regarding the classic energy sector regulations’, adds Mr. Tarka.
Following the merger, our Firm’s energy law practice will be co-managed by Mr. Michał Tarka and Mr. Paweł Łącki, PhD. The competences of the expert teams combined under the single SMM Legal brand offer a unique and comprehensive response to today’s market needs. As a result, we will be able to lend our support to a broad range of energy market participants, across all investment stages, offering advice based on national and European law and consistent with the latest business trends.
