CEE Investment Awards were presented to the best companies from the region for their achievements in the field of commercial real estate during the 11th edition of the event. We are honored to have our tax and financial advisors recognized in the Tax & Financial Advisor category for another consecutive year.
“For many years we have been successfully building our multidisciplinary team of specialists, who can support our real estate clients in an absolutely comprehensive manner at every stage of conducted transactions and in day-to-day operations. We are well aware of the fact that only adequate financial and tax security is a guarantee of success of any – even seemingly simple – undertaking. The award therefore confirms that we have chosen the right strategy and that our experts are appreciated by the market and thus by our customers. It is a reason to be proud and happy,” commented Krzysztof Dziekoński, Partner, Baker Tilly TPA.
It is also important to admit that the pandemic period has meant that both the advisors and the clients have had to operate in more difficult circumstances, in the shadow of many constraints and uncertainties. This does not mean, however, that clients have stopped transacting and their businesses have stopped operating, and advisory services are no longer needed.
“The restrictions caused by the pandemic have redefined many aspects of the real estate market, and investors have been even more careful about the decisions they make, and the analysis of the risks associated with a given transaction must be more extensive and even more meticulous. On top of that, there have been communication challenges and the announcement of numerous tax changes. We have focused on the latter in recent months when working with real estate clients. This is probably another reason why we were awarded in the EuropaProperty CEE Investment & Manufacturing Awards,” added Małgorzata Dankowska, Partner at TPA Poland in charge of the real estate team and Warsaw tax practice at TPA Poland.
Our success in this prestigious plebiscite is undoubtedly confirmed by the projects we have carried out. It is worth mentioning at least a few of them. We have advised in the sale and purchase process on transactions such as the acquisition of Offices at Warzelnia, the largest office building in the Warsaw Brewery complex, and the historic Warzelnia Brewery by Deka Immobilien for more than €150 million, the acquisition of the fund’s first property in the Szyperska Office Center in Poznan by the Czech Investika OPF, or the purchase of a logistics complex on the outskirts of Warsaw by AEW.
EuropaProperty CEE Investment Awards is one of the most important and valuable real estate events in Central and Eastern Europe. This year, the forum and awards gala were organized in a hybrid format, combining traditional face-to-face meetings at the Intercontinental Hotel in Warsaw with an online component (via the CEO Networking Platform).
This is a one of a kind event focusing on the investment market, with awards for top investors, investors/developers, bankers, projects and specialized service companies.
Nominations were submitted online, and an independent jury conducted the process of selecting nominations in each award category. Jury members are experienced real estate professionals and come from every commercial real estate sector in the region.
Congratulations to all the nominees and those honored in this year’s edition!
