We are pleased to announce that we represented Sportsdirect.com Poland sp. z o.o. (“Sportsdirect.com”) in connection with its acquisition of all the assets of the bankruptcy estate of Go Sport Polska sp. z o.o. (“Go Sport”) from the bankruptcy trustee, Zimmerman Filipiak Restrukturyzacja.
Sportsdirect.com is owned by Frasers Group, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. The investor owns stationary retail store chains in more than twenty countries and also sells products online. Go Sport is a company that specialises in the sale of sporting goods.
“We are pleased that we were able to support the client in the first transaction of this type in Poland. Due to the fact that GO Sport was included on the sanctions list and its assets had been frozen, both the bankruptcy proceedings and the sale required innovative approaches. We would like to thank the Sportsdirect.com team for their trust in us and to congratulate all of the parties involved,” said Magdalena Pyzik-Waląg, a partner at Rymarz Zdort Maruta.
The team involved in the transaction included Magdalena Pyzik-Waląg (Partner), Magdalena Żukowska (Associate), Hubert Derdowski (Associate) and Michał Burek (Associate). Antitrust law advice was provided by Iwona Her (Partner) and Irmina Wątły (Counsel).
