ALTO is expanding it’s Capital Markets Practice by focusing on the capital markets, FinTech and ESG
In June, dr Joanna Róg-Dyrda (Counsel, attorney-at-law) joined the team of lawyers at ALTO – she will strengthen the practice of capital markets, as well as develop projects in such areas as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and Financial Innovation (FinTech). ). Joanna will be responsible in particular for the area of the capital market covering issues related to trading on the stock exchange – including conducting public offerings and admitting to trading, supporting public companies and other issuers in the scope of fulfilling disclosure obligations (including MAR and reporting obligations), as well as legal support associated with significant blocks of shares.
Joanna has over ten years of experience in providing legal services to entities operating on the financial market. She specializes in advising public companies and other issuers, brokerage houses and investment fund companies. What is more, she conducted public issues of shares, tender offers, delisting, trained managerial staff in the scope of obligations related to the change of the company’s status to a public company, and supported one of the largest listed companies in the performance of information obligations (current and periodic). Joanna has advised banks, payment institutions, cooperative savings and credit unions, as well as administrative bodies. Her professional experience also includes advising entities with State Treasury shareholding, including those related to the operation of these entities on the capital market and the management of Treasury’s property.
– Our legal team is developing dynamically, leading multidisciplinary projects. We are very happy that our clients trust us, which directly translates into the constantly growing number of cases. Expanding the team is a natural consequence of the team development. Now, thanks to Joanna’s knowledge and experience, we will be able to support our clients in the development of their businesses in a sustainable manner, taking into account ESG criteria, being aware of the impact of changes on their business. – says Piotr Orczykowski, Managing Partner of the Legal Team at ALTO.
The stock exchange is of key importance for the economy and is its barometer, while understanding its functioning requires longer and careful observation and analysis. It is on the stock exchange that investors who want their funds to workfor future profits meet companies that need capital to develop and generate an increase in the value. On a daily basis, ALTO experts try to support both investors and companies in their goals, so that companies can ultimately grow faster, introduce innovative products, and thus generate greater profits to the benefit of both parties.
Currently, innovations, including those related to the use of DLT or AI, are also important for the financial market.
– For some time my professional interests have also focused on new technologies that are developing very dynamically, which also creates the need to create new regulations, especially at the EU level. One can indicate here, for example, the work on the regulation on crypto assets. The dynamics of changes is quite large, so lawyers dealing with the financial market should have cross-sectional knowledge, also reaching those areas that we have so far perceived as the so-called alternative finance. – adds Dr. Joanna Róg-Dyrda
