What the team is known for A strong independent firm headquartered in Warsaw, WKB combines in-house expertise with connections to foreign law firms to service the cross-border needs of clients. The firm is particularly well equipped to advise on matters involving European jurisdictions; its own French, German and Italian desks are supplemented by its membership of the Association of European Lawyers.

The firm is particularly active in cross-border banking and M&A transactions, and is routinely sought out to advise as co-counsel on deals involving multiple jurisdictions, often in conjunction with international firms. WKB's diverse client base comprises domestic entities and multinationals, who can also call on the team's disputes capabilities, as well as its transactional expertise.

Strengths One client highlights the firm's "effective handling of an international matter," adding: "They have a good understanding of different legal systems. They have clear communications and a structured process."

Another interviewee recalls: "Overall they were fantastic. They were responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I would approach them with 'here's how we do it in the US' and they took that and showed me the equivalent in Poland or under EU law and how we get to where we would be comfortable."

Multiple sources highlight the firm's ability to work on the Polish aspects of international matters. In relation to a multi-jurisdictional acquisition, a source comments: "The work provided by the team was really of great help. Timelines were met and the legal and tax quality was really good."
