Our seamless legal services in Poland and in German-speaking jurisdictions cover all areas of corporate law, such as:

  • Incorporation of companies and attending to their day-to-day functioning
  • Drafting, negotiation, and execution of various contracts
  • Due diligence studies identifying potential risks affecting potential transactions
  • Advice on purchase, lease, and sale of real estate
  • Securing administrative decisions and permits necessary for effectuating transactions or conducting business activity in certain fields
