We advise on the legal structures best suited to conducting business in Poland, and will assist in setting up representative offices, branches, or subsidiaries in local markets, while providing regular, on-going advice on all corporate issues, including M&A. Interdisciplinary teams focus on specific industry sectors and participate regularly in industry conferences and exhibitions.

We advise insurance companies, pension funds, investments funds and banks on regulatory compliance, transaction documentation, data protection and product introduction, as well as representing Financial Institutions before the Polish Financial Supervisory Authority.
Banking and Finance
We advise banks, financial institutions, developers, institutional clients, and real estate funds on lending and debt transactions.
We provide tailor-made solutions for mergers and acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures, share incentives, restructuring processes, and management buy-outs. We also support investors in the acquisition of equity, preparing due diligence reports and transaction documentation.
We support all property and project-finance transactions, such as acquisitions, long-term leases, construction, as well as representing clients in court and in arbitration.
The areas covered include international tax law, investment processes, value-added tax, international tax structuring and planning, transactional tax advice, and litigation.
We advise clients on all contentious and non-contentious aspects of Polish and EU competition law, in particular, in merger control proceedings and anti-trust matters.

We advise public entities and private partners in connection with infrastructural projects as implemented by them.
