  • About this practice area

  • Cooperation benefits

    It is common knowledge that businesspeople suffer from chronic lack of time. Constant support from an experienced law firm removes from an entrepreneur the burden of ensuring compliance of the company’s activities with the applicable regulations. It is also widely known that regulations in Poland keep changing… quite rapidly. The legal landscape you have been accustomed to can literally change overnight. We are constantly monitoring developments in competition law and case law on behalf of our Clients, and this means that the company is always up to date and ahead of its competitors.  

    The company can also benefit from swift identification of risks. This is particularly important in the case of abusive clauses. Such clauses can often be found in the terms and conditions of sales and electronic services. Not only do we identify them, but we also advise our Clients on how the wording can be replaced.  

    We focus not only on the intended final result, but also on safeguarding trade secrets. Our Clients successfully avoid heavy fines. Instead of paying fines, it is much more profitable to devote additional resources to the company’s development.
