Copyright

  • About this practice area

    Copyright law is our forte. For over twenty years, our expert team has been successfully advising domestic and foreign Clients in the creative industry and other sectors of the economy where copyright is of fundamental importance.

    For example, we work with publishers and members of the media, organizers of cultural events, advertising agencies, architects and designers, and online and IT entrepreneurs. We also provide support to public sector entities in organizing open competitions and tenders, as well as in acquiring copyright for local government . We are convinced that doing business without attending to copyright issues is virtually impossible due to the digitalization of the economy, culture, and social life. It is therefore worth entrusting copyright issues to our team of experienced professionals. We protect the interests of Clients who have placed their trust in us in the most comprehensible manner possible. We understand perfectly how valuable, though intangible, copyright and related rights are. We do everything we can to safeguard them adequately.

  • Cooperation benefits

    Copyright permeates our everyday lives. It not only concerns publishing of books, producing records, or organizing concerts. It also concerns online business in its broadest sense, deployment of software, organization of webinars, e-learning, and online distribution of video games. We have amassed a wealth of experience in all these areas.

    We provide our Clients with real legal security regarding transactions they enter into and constant support in working out a strategy to protect their intellectual property rights. In addition, we provide assistance in contract negotiations and we help Clients resolve disputes amicably through mediation, which is often more cost-effective than engaging in a court dispute. 

    Our team’s expertise and experience have been repeatedly recognized in prestigious rankings of law firms. In 2020, we were recommended in the IP category in The Legal 500 and Chambers Europe. We have also been recognized every year in the ranking of law firms published by the Rzeczpospolita daily. Since 2005, we have retained the leading position in copyright, intellectual and industrial property law, while since 2010 we have been named the leader in that category. Moreover, we were singled out in the exclusive ranking IP STARS 2019, which recommends the leading practitioners in intellectual property law.
