Advocacy and charity activities as well as safe family property succession require the use of appropriate legal instruments. The Polish law is just discovering the wealth of experiences and forms of entrusting property to professional management to realize specific goals – social, charitable, and religious. Family foundations which, patterned after the ordinations of the First Commonwealth of Poland are becoming more and more popular, and emerge as a vehicle for the organization and transfer of property to the next generations. Our team was one of the first in the country to implement advanced formulas for foundations and trusts for domestic and foreign clients wishing to secure the financial stability of families or the continuity of initiated charity projects.
Religious and Canon Law
We clearly see a deficit of professional legal services for church and religious institutions, both in the field of civil law, labor law, and special regulations of religious law, as well as in the area of canon law, and criminal law. The experience and trust built through many years of cooperation with dioceses, religious orders, clergy, and lay people managing church entities allow us to offer our clients unique forms of support.
Banking, Financial Institutions, and Capital Markets
In providing advisory to leading banks, investment funds, credit institutions, payment institutions and projects subject to similar, special regulatory requirements, the lawyers of the law firm have accumulated unique experience in the field of operations of financial institutions in the national, EU, and international regulatory environment.

Personal Data Protection (GDPR)
Together with the law firm's clients, we made a breakthrough transition from the former regulations to the reality of the GDPR, and then we co-shaped the national and European practice of personal data protection in industries subject to specific regulatory regimes, including in the field of operation of recruitment agencies, in financial markets, and mass fundraising by social organizations.
Human Rights, International Law and NGOs
