The Polish branch of DLP Dr Lewandowski & Partners is a well known and established legal firm offering a comprehensive range of services and legal advice fully tailored to our Polish and International clients demands and expectations. We specialise in assisting foreign clients to enter the Polish business sector and offer our expertise regarding the setting up and acquisition of subsidiaries, representing foreign clients in litigation cases before Polish state and arbitration courts and enforcing (cross–border) judgment. Our multi-lingual staff provides services in Polish, English, German and Russian and we are one of the very few legal firms based in Poland to provide legal advice in Italian and Spanish as well.
Recently we have been successfully involved in a number of cases with an international flavour. We have advised a Chinese construction giant in setting up a Polish subsidiary and assisted them in entering the lucrative Polish market of road building, sports stadia and shopping mall investment. Additionally, we have represented Warsaw City Council during negotiations with UEFA regarding the staging of the 2012 European Football Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
Furthermore, we have advised international volleyball stars from Germany, Italy, Spain and Slovakia during negotiations with their clubs and brokered contractual dispute settlements. We have been acted on behalf of relatives of Jewish families in accessing Polish archives in order to procure documentation and to establish restoration claims. Currently, we are advising companies seeking to establish biogas plants in the lucrative sector of renewable energy which is of high interest to new investors as the Polish government introduced new favourable laws to boost this area.
In 2010, we established an Italian desk, managed by Avvocato, Silvio Di Dea and in 2015 a Spanish desk managed by Abogato Kamila Markowska, lawyers with relevant experience in Polish and Italian/Spanish legal affairs, in particular within the fields of commercial and corporate law.
We pride ourselves on offering our clients a fully comprehensive professional service on the local Polish market while simultaneously providing multi-lingual advice in order to assist a whole range of nationalities in their preferred language.
