Wolf Theiss expands in Poland with the addition of experienced real estate and environmental specialist

Aleksandra Jach has over 14 years of experience in advising institutional investors on the real estate market in Poland. She graduated from the Law Faculty at the University of Warsaw and the LL.M. programme at McGill University, Montréal (Canada). This year she proudly received the designation of a “Next Generation Partner” in the Legal 500 rankings.

Aleksandra advises on the financial, development and leasing aspects of real estate projects and in real estate matters of renewable energy projects – particularly in the development of wind and solar farms. Furthermore, she focuses on the environmental aspects of the real estate business, including investments in agricultural real properties, noise emissions and sustainable farming. Highlighting her recognised expertise on these topics, she contributed to the UN Report on good practices related to the recognition and implementation of the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment. She also manages her own blog entitled ‘Law for pleasure’, which covers traditional as well as forward-looking legal issues including those that fall outside of her expertise. One of her aims is to popularise the implementation of new technologies in the legal field, such as artificial intelligence and electronic signatures.

Adding Aleksandra’s extensive experience and talent to the Warsaw team was a strategic decision in response to the growing demand for legal advisory services in the CEE region. The real estate sector is highly active. After the successful sale of Concept Tower, a 15-floor office building, which is the first in Poland to be certified both LEED Gold and BREEAM, the Warsaw team has recently participated in three logistics closings. The team advised on sales that are part of a European-wide series of transactions and projects which involved other specialisations, with a huge scope of the assets being sold at the same time. The last transaction covered an international portfolio consisting of more than thirty properties located in different regions of Poland and Hungary.

This year the Warsaw Real Estate and Construction practice has moved up the rankings into band 3 in Chambers Europe and into band 2 in the Legal 500, having three lawyers listed individually in the second ranking.
