Overview

We provide practical and effective employment and social security advice to employers.

Most of our direct contacts are foreign HR and HR Legal functions. It is our mission to guide them through the Polish employment law system which is complex and difficult to navigate for newcomers. We not only provide our clients with the right answers, but we also ask them the right questions about things they do not necessarily identify as relevant from the Polish legal perspective.

We always treat HR issues as part of a broader legal framework and are constantly alert to potential regulatory, tax, competition and company law issues that need to be taken into consideration. Proud of being a part of a leading Polish one-stop-shop law firm, we benefit from the expertise of our colleagues from other practices. Our assistance is always comprehensive.

For us, pragmatism is not just a slogan. We understand business and always focus on practical solutions as well as simple and straightforward advice.

Our employment team is among the largest in Poland. This allows us to smoothly process even the largest projects within tight deadlines. We pride ourselves on our response times to our clients’ requests. Our employment attorneys are present in all four offices of the firm. This facilitates our assistance as well as limits travel and litigation costs.
