Baker McKenzie has advised the Polindus-Laktopol Capital Group on its acquisition of a production plant in Bielsk Podlaski from the bankruptcy trustee of the Bielmlek Dairy Cooperative. Sole practitioner Kazimierz Mordaszewski reportedly advised the bankruptcy trustee.
The Polindus-Laktopol Capital Group has been a Polish national producer of powdered milk, whey, and fat products since 1989. According to Baker McKenzie, "the group uses one of the largest and most modern powder plants in Europe, and its products are available on the markets of over 90 countries around the world."
According to the firm, "the production plant in Bielsk Podlaski is the fifth production plant in the group, and it will be possible to double the group’s production capacity. The transaction took place with the consent of the creditors’ council in a single-source procedure within the bankruptcy proceedings of the Bielmlek Dairy Cooperative."
Baker McKenzie’s team included Partner Magdalena Nasilowska, Counsels Karol Czepukojc and Michal Maj, Senior Associate Michal Derdak, Associate Kamil Matyskiewicz, and Lawyer Jakub Zebrowski.
