Scope of services

The newly-established enterprises do not operate only in IT field. They also run design workshops, natural cosmetics’ manufactures or online shops. Regardless of the branch of my client and the stage of their business, I am always glad to explain all troubling issues, guide my client’s activity to correct paths, encourage him to take certain measures and sometimes also cool their ideas if their implementation could expose them to negative consequences.

Negotiations with clients, development of the brand on new markets, problems with effective recovery, structural changes in the company – these are the most frequent reasons for small and medium enterprises to search for legal assistance. I am glad to advise and assist the entrepreneurs throughout the course of their business activity.

Associations and foundations which operate currently in Poland are rarely classical non-profit organizations. More frequently, they act “non for profit” and their business activity is a way to earn funds for their statutory purposes. Once the non-profit performance and the business activity exist together, legal assistance quite often turns out to be necessary.

For many years I have been providing legal services for French-speaking clients who begin their business activity in Poland. I have also worked with Polish entrepreneurs whose clients have their registered office in one of the French-speaking countries. The peculiarity of these regions and French culture makes the French-speaking customers keen on working with French-speaking lawyers. Such clients often expect that contracts, minutes or requests will be drafted in bilingual or French version.
