Michał is responsible for every legal and compliance aspect of business, provides legal advice and coordinates professional services delivered for Cresa and its clients, analyzing risks and identifying the best scenarios.

“Legal counseling is highly recommended in the real estate sector due to considerable transaction values, changing legal regulations and many other aspects that need to be considered on a case-by-case basis. As for compliance, it is critical to examine and eliminate conflicts of interest, which at Cresa is much more transparent and works to the benefit of clients because Cresa provides services for tenants only. This helps prevent confidentiality issues and problems with communication between teams representing two parties of a transaction,” said Michał Śmietański, a Board Director and Head of the Legal Department of Cresa Poland.

Michał Śmietański has 20 years of experience in the legal profession, specializing in work for commercial real estate services firms. Prior to joining Cresa, for over twelve years he had been an in-house lawyer at Cushman & Wakefield with responsibility for international legal and compliance issues and coordination of related activities. He also participated in real estate transactions and lease negotiations.
