“Being once again highly placed in this prestigious ranking confirms Mazars’ strong position as one of the leading financial and tax transaction advisory providers in Central & Eastern Europe, as well as reflects our continued success in delivering international, client-oriented and tailored services. We have proven that thanks to the extensive competencies of our team and the ability to adapt to dynamically changing market conditions we are able to realize various projects to the highest quality standards, - says Michel Kiviatkowski, CEE Financial advisory services leader and Managing partner of Mazars in Poland.

Adam Zohry, Executive manager coordinating the financial advisory services practice within CEE adds: “During the last year, the Covid-19 pandemic influenced the regional deal making landscape and related practices. Sectors like IT or Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals generally benefited from the overall context, both strategic investors and PE/VC funds having been keen to look for potential acquisitions. Succession planning and spin-offs from large companies also created some M&A opportunities on the market. In the middle-term, CEE’s strong fundamentals (strategic geographical location, quality of the labor, lower costs, growing middle-class…), should ensure that the region will benefit for the progressive global economic recovery once the crisis will passe.”
