Best European Real Estate Team of 2020

Penteris is the only CEE law firm that has made it to the finals of “The Lawyer” European Awards 2020 in the “European Real Estate Team of the Year” transactional category.

Penteris will compete for the title of European Real Estate Team of the Year against Latham & Watkins, Niederer Kraft Frey, PLMJ, and VdA, after being shortlisted in this category.

The team was recognised for advising Immofinanz on the purchase of Warsaw Spire Tower from Ghelamco and Madison International Realty for the sizeable amount of €386m. Managing Partner Agnieszka Pytlas supervised the team, which also included Iga Piotrowska, Kamil Osowski, and Jeremiasz Kuśmierz.

The transaction was the largest single-asset transaction on the office market, not only in Poland but also in Central and Eastern Europe. According to experts, its value, complexity, and impact on the market were without precedence in the region.
