Greenberg Traurig has advised ZE PAK on forming a partnership with Orsted and on related antitrust proceedings before the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection of Poland. Reportedly, Hengeler Mueller and Soltysinski Kawecki & Szlezak advised Orsted on the deal.

According to Greenberg Traurig, “as part of the transaction, ZE PAK entered into a share purchase agreement with Orsted regarding five project companies, whereby ZE PAK acquired from Orsted 50% of shares in the share capital of five joint venture companies. The parties also entered into a shareholders’ agreement defining the principles of corporate governance in the above companies.
