UK: Orrick Advises Infracapital In Joint Venture With Nokia And Successful Bid For Polish Fiber Optic Broadband Network
Last Updated: 18 July 2017

Orrick has advised Infracapital, the infrastructure investment arm of M&G Investments, in its joint venture with Nokia, to build, own and operate a fiber optic broadband network across Poland. The joint venture has been appointed by the Polish government as its preferred bidder to build, own and operate a large fibre broadband network in 13 regions in Central and Northern Poland. Construction is expected to begin this year with capital expenditure estimated at €300 million.

The project is part of the EU-backed "Digital Poland" program which aims to deploy high-speed fiber optic broadband across the country by 2020.

Infracapital is the European infrastructure equity arm of M&G Limited, Prudential Plc's European investment management division.

The Orrick team advising Infracapital was led by corporate partner Jinal Shah and energy & infrastructure partner John Deacon and included Henry Storrar, Matthew Stott, Alex Sobolev, Douglas Lahnborg and Matthew Rose.

Orrick has been advising Infracapital since 2015, most recently in its investment into a joint venture with Amarenco Solar and its purchase of a 70% stake in Bioenergy Infrastructure Group.

The other advisers on the transaction were Baker McKenzie, who advised the joint venture and Nokia, and DZP, who advised Infracapital on Polish law matters.
