This is a great honour for our law firm and our lawyers working on green projects and transactions.

Our lawyers are proud of evaluation and assessment included in the Legal 500 Green Guide.

Signatory of the World Lawyers’ Pledge on Climate Action, Polish firm Kieltyka Gladkowski KG Legal has a dedicated green energy department and handles an array of environmental issues, spanning climate migration, sustainability, and clean energy transition through renewable energy resources. The team, which predominantly handles cross-border matters, also actively advises on green PPAs and projects related to green cryptocurrencies. Notably, the firm operates a client acceptance policy aligned to ESG criteria and does not advise clients regarded as polluters.

An innovative recent matter was the firm’s advice to a Scandinavian entity entering the Polish market with its software and management system surrounding packaging waste recycling, such as the disposal of beverage containers and cans.

In the renewables space, the firm provided regulatory assistance to a German client entering as a shareholder in a photovoltaic company operating in Poland, while in another innovative project, it advised a foreign operator of a green fintech investment platform offering investments in renewable energy projects, energy efficiency, and other sustainability initiatives.

The firm’s numerous external engagements include its membership in the Coalition for Decarbonising Buildings, and on a regular basis, the team also takes part in IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) events to gain further insights and drive action in the renewable energy transition, including the deployment of green hydrogen.
