We dedicate ourselves to each matter and our clients are kept regularly informed of the course of proceedings. Our know-how aids the market feeling that we gained in working with entities operating in various business sectors.

The Law Firm has handled numerous prominent cases in Poland for clients in, e.g. construction and infrastructure, industry, transport and communications, trade, finances and insurance, and also in the real estate and state administration sectors.
