We are recommended by Chambers Europe and The Legal 500 international rankings in the area of dispute resolution. We represent clients at every level of Polish courts. We guide them through arbitration before Polish as well as foreign tribunals. We have been involved in a host of unique cases on behalf of both corporations and individuals. Our lawyers represent clients in cases that cut across an array of legal disciplines. Our expertise also includes pre-emptive advice on how to reduce exposure to the risk of litigation.

The key areas of our dispute resolution practice include:

  • Arbitration
  • Class Actions
  • Construction and Real Property Litigation
  • Corporate and Commercial Litigation
  • Fraud and Asset Tracing
  • Employment Litigation
  • Intellectual Property Litigation

We advise clients on restructuring and insolvency matters, both in litigation and in out-of-court transactions. We also provide transactional and corporate advice. This includes M&A transactions, real estate acquisitions, joint-venture agreements, investment agreements, management contracts and the reorganisation of corporate groups. We also guide our clients through their day-to-day legal issues.
