Wierzbowski Eversheds has signed an agreement to provide ongoing legal services to EDF Polska. The agreement is for three years. The client will be served by a team led by attorney Łukasz Jankowski, head of the firm’s energy practice.

The EDF Group is a leader in the European electricity market and is integrated across the areas of power generation, transmission, distribution, trading and sale.

In Poland, EDF has a 10 per cent share of the electricity market and a 15 per cent share of the district heating market. It is also the largest foreign investor in the power industry.
