We have been advising and representing foreign and Polish clients doing business in Poland since we opened our Warsaw office in 1991.

For more than the last two decades, we have been evolving into one of the leading practices in all major areas of business law. We have developed an outstanding reputation for our role in a number of high-profile, pioneering transactions.

Highly regarded for our experience in emerging markets, our Polish clients believe that "the team is very commercial and business-oriented. The lawyers are very practical – they don't search for problems, but offer solutions" and "the team works very well between the Warsaw and London offices, which is very important for international transactions." (Chambers Europe)

Through the extensive footprint of offices worldwide, and with the continuous cooperation of lawyers from various countries, we are able to assist our clients with their most complicated cross-border transactions. Clients who seek our counsel include financial institutions, large companies, entrepreneurs, public sector companies and private investors in areas including energy, mining, telecommunications, real estate and finance. Our advice enables them to achieve their business goals in relation to their investment plans in Poland and expansion into other markets, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

Our lawyers are licensed to practice law not only in Poland, but also in the United States and England. Our team also has unique experience in representing clients in domestic and international disputes and arbitration proceedings.

The Warsaw office is the focal point for English-law governed transactions in and around the CEE region. Here, we support our clients in their participation in the financing of large investment projects. We offer tailored advice regarding their investments in Polish banks and the development of new banking products.

Our success in Poland is founded on our ability to combine deep knowledge of the issues that are relevant to our clients and our global experience.
