We have extensive experience in conducting proceedings before the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK), ranging from merger notifications to cases involving a dominant position and prohibited agreements. We ensure support at every stage of such proceedings.


We conduct litigation before the Polish Patent Office and the EUIPO – some of the documents we draw up include oppositions, third-party observations, trademark defences, and applications for a declaration of invalidity or revocation of  trademark, and for the invalidity of industrial design.

International disputes 

In conducting international disputes it is essential to establish the governing law, which entails not only taking into account local laws, but also international conventions – and we have the relevant experience for such a task.

Employment disputes 

Employees’ departures can lead to different outcomes. We help to keep them as matter-of-fact as possible. We advise on the most optimal forms of termination, draft the relevant documentation and often assist the employer in talks with the employee. Afterwards – should the employee decide to sue – we defend our position in court.

Selected projects:

We have demonstrated the reputation of our FMCG client’s trademark before the Polish Patent Office, and as a result the mark’s protection now covers a considerably broader range of products.

We have represented an employee holding a managerial position in a case involving unfair dismissal.

We have represented an academic researcher in proceedings against the employer relating to the payment of remuneration for an invention.

We have represented an employee in proceedings against a large corporation for unfair dismissal.
