Real estate and construction
We have extensive experience in legal services related to all types of real estate transactions. We provide our Clients with complex services already at the stage of purchasing real estate, including obtaining all the relevant administrative permits and licenses. We assist our Clients in drafting investment concepts tailored to the project for which a given real estate is acquired. We offer comprehensive legal services related to construction investments and contracts (including based on FIDIC Regulations), as well as agreements with contract engineers and subcontractors. We provide our Clients with professional advice regarding procurement and administrative proceedings. Advisory services, drafting and review of tenancy and lease agreements also fall within the scope of our offer.
Commercial law and contracts
Our operations are based on a well-established practice in the field of formulation of optimum commercial solutions for our Clients and the related advisory services. This refers to both the legal form of conducting a business, as well as the on-going legal assistance and drafting of opinions relating to civil and commercial law. We also handle corporate advisory services, including negotiations and drafting of documents necessary in mergers, sale of shares, enterprises and their assets. Our extensive hands-on experience and knowledge in the scope of negotiations and formulation of commercial contracts allow us to ensure maximum protection of the interests of our Clients.
Our firm has a long track-record in all matters related to public procurement. This involves the analysis of procurement documents, assistance in preparation of offers and specifications, as well as representing our Clients in the course of contract negotiations (competitive dialogue) and in appeal proceedings before the National Chamber of Appeal and the Regional Court.
Labour law is a key area of our practice. Our lawyers offer their expertise in drawing up and negotiating employment contracts, non-competition clauses, as well as internal labour law acts, such as regulations, agreements with labour unions, drafts of collective labour agreements. We also handle issues related to mass redundancy processes and negotiations with social unions. We represent our Clients in employment disputes before courts and administrative authorities.
The lawyers at our firm have an extensive experience in court litigations. Our services in this scope encompass civil lawsuits related to non-performance or misperformance of contracts, actions for payment or the establishment of existence – or lack thereof – of contractual relationships. We also manage our Clients’ cases in courts of arbitration, based both in Poland and abroad.
In our practice we handle numerous tax-related issues underlying transactions carried out by our Clients. We do not shy away from tax law and strive to meet Client expectations also in this area. Our advisory services focus primarily on tax issues related to so-called cross-border transactions, with a particular emphasis on double taxation avoidance, tax planning and transfer pricing. We also represent our Clients before tax authorities and administrative courts in matters connected to tax liabilities.
