Pending or announced changes in Polish law affecting the market

The latest edition of our publication “Pending or announced changes in Polish law affecting the market—selected issues” is now out! It offers a summary of changes across twenty areas of law, and is particularly valuable for identifying the targets of current and planned changes and outlining the potential consequences. Although the publication is legal in nature, we have tried to ensure that it is written clearly and accessibly, avoiding legal jargon. We encourage you to read it.

Intellectual property protection on the cosmetics and perfumes market

Our new publication is devoted entirely to the cosmetics and perfumes industry, as well as issues of intellectual property protection and processes specific to the industry. We also write about whether scent can be protected, whether distributors can be prohibited from selling luxury goods online, and the issues disputed between entities from the industry.

Outlook on law and business in Poland

We discuss trends in changes in the law, such as increased regulatory pressure and increased penalisation of commerce. These are illuminated by concrete examples from practice and conclusions concerning the consequences of these phenomena that can be expected to occur or are already happening.

Practical M&A Guide

An overview of mergers and acquisitions in Poland. The process, structure and parties to M&A deals, legal restrictions and tax aspects, discussed clearly and accessibly. What to bear in mind, and what details require special focus.

Report: Blockchain, smart contracts and DAO

Blockchain technology holds vast potential that can only be unleashed with regulatory backing. Smart contracts and decentralised autonomous organisations can change the legal system as we know it while generating new models for the economy.

Liability of public authorities

The topic of liability for damages on the part of public authorities is not widely known. Many people are not aware of the extensive rights at their disposal connected with actions by bodies of public authority. Consequently, injured parties often fail to pursue redress of losses suffered in connection with public administration.
