JDP Drapala & Partners has announced the launch of its new Energy and Renewables practice in Warsaw with the arrival of Practice Head Michal Drozdowicz.
The new Energy and Renewables practice will advise clients "on energy issues regarding developing and acquiring renewable energy sources, including due diligence checks in M&A transactions and RES financing, primarily in the PV sector."
According to JDP, Drozdowicz has over twenty years of experience in energy law and renewables. Prior to joining the firm, he spent over three years with Eversheds Sutherland. Before that, he spent seven years with Dentons and, earlier, another four years with Wierzbowski Eversheds. Earlier still, Drozdowicz spent over two years as an Associate with Schampera, Dubis, Zajac i Wspolnicy, between 2006 and 2008.
“We are very happy that Michal Drozdowicz has joined JDP and will take charge of the Energy / Renewables practice,” Partner Marcin Chomiuk commented. “Michal is a renowned practitioner in the area of legal advice on renewables investment process and legal due diligence regarding acquiring and performing RES projects in Poland.”
“In the last year, we observed an energy crisis and its consequences that affected the ambitious projects in the Polish energy sector,” added Drozdowicz. “It seems that changes are coming in terms of securing energy prices, handling consequences of interferences on the energy markets, dynamic investments in completed or ongoing RES projects, and expansion of energy generation and grid infrastructures. Thanks to their top-tier experts in areas crucial for protecting the interests of clients from the energy sector, JDP has great opportunities available. I’m happy to be a part of it.”
