About Us

About DMS

Key fields of expertise

We offer complex legal advisory services in the scope of commercial law, financial transactions and insurance, restructuring, criminal and labor law as well as court and arbitration procedures. We often work as subcontractors for law firms in other jurisdictions, either implementing Polish aspects of cross-border transactions, or handling esoteric issues such as FCPA cases that arise in Poland in relation to international groups.

We deal with untypical matters. We specialize in advising on the legal aspects of financial transactions as well as in complicated court procedures, which are most frequently complex and multi-faceted, and which often raise social concerns and public debate. We have experience in drafting complicated transactions, tailored to the individual needs of some very demanding clients. We offer non-standard solutions allowing our clients to achieve their goals. We offer legal advice in fields where they require practical knowledge and expertise.

In addition, we provide legal services and representation in the scope of implementing workout programs and restructuring at all stages of bankruptcy procedures.

Our law firm offers services to entities conducting business or investment activity, including legal advisory services in corporate and business matters, as well as legal representation in front of courts of all instances and administrative authorities.
