What we do

Allen & Overy Warsaw opened in 1991 as one of the first international legal practices in Poland.

We act for a wide range of Polish and international clients providing comprehensive legal advice on Polish, English and European law in all major practice areas. As such, we play an important part in Allen & Overy’s Central and Eastern European regional practice.

Continual development is one of the major elements of a successful legal career. It plays an important role in meeting client requirements and in contributing to our worldwide strategy. To become an experienced lawyer with us, you need to have a naturally high standard of legal skills as well as other essential skills such as problem analysis and judgment, creativity, strategic planning and the principles of clear and persuasive thinking. 

Our primary functions are to provide the best service to our clients and develop Allen & Overy's professional standing. In this context, however, we acknowledge a strong responsibility to the individuals with whom we work and the communities in which we operate. As a consequence, we run a very active programme of pro bono work and community projects in which employees are encouraged to participate.

Practices in Poland 


The Polish-based Antitrust and EU team is one of the market-leading practices covering all aspects of Polish and EU antitrust law. As an integrated part of Allen & Overy’s U.S.-European Antitrust group, the Warsaw team meets its challenge with ease, having developed expertise both in the provision of strategic advice and in litigating competition matters, in close cooperation with our Brussels Competition team.   

Arbitration, Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Our Dispute Resolution department has significant expertise in corporate and commercial litigation, international arbitration, directors’ liabilities, shareholder and partnership disputes, restructuring and contentious and non-contentious insolvency advice.

We act for our clients in arbitrations before the Arbitration Court at the Polish Chamber of Commerce and in non-administered arbitrations (ad hoc).   

Banking and Finance

Allen & Overy is at the heart of the world’s banking and financial markets. Few practices can match the quality of our people, the breadth of our client base, our global reach and our top tier position across the full range of financial products. We advise our clients on the full spectrum of financing disciplines.  

Capital Markets

We have a particularly strong track record advising clients on many ground-breaking capital market transactions. In many cases our lawyers have assisted in devising novel structures to meet Polish requirements and to satisfy clients’ demands. The wide scope of work includes local and international equity offerings, eurobonds, convertible bonds as well as projects in Polish financial markets.   

Corporate and M&A

We handle the full range of transactional and multi-disciplinary work, and provide advice on all corporate matters. Clients value our integrated and seamless legal services, whether they are raising capital, buying or selling businesses, outsourcing, restructuring and carrying out other corporate or corporate finance transactions.   


Our Energy and Utilities group focuses on finding business-driven solutions for our clients in this sector’s complex legal and regulatory regimes. The group has market-leading expertise in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, privatisations and project financing, supported by our specialist practices in environmental law and litigation. 

Intellectual Property

The Intellectual Property (IP) team advises clients on the full spectrum of IP matters, including protecting trademarks and brands, domain names, software and copyright, designs, know-how, business names, database protection and exploiting IP rights in joint ventures, licensing agreements and development arrangements, and technology transfer agreements. 

Real Estate  

The Warsaw Real Estate team advises clients on all aspects of real estate in Poland and abroad. We provide advice on the full spectrum of real estate work, including property finance, property development, construction, operation and maintenance, sale and purchase agreements, leases, tax, leasehold, zoning and planning, environmental and green-field projects.   


We provide advisory services in the full scope of tax law, including corporate income tax, value added tax, personal income tax, transfer tax, excise tax, and real estate tax. We work not only on a stand-alone basis but also form an integral part of the full legal service provided by Allen & Overy in Warsaw and globally.   

Telecommunications, Media and Technology

We have extensive experience in advising clients (operators, suppliers and customers) in the communications sector on all types of commercial agreements. We also advise clients on interconnection network construction and infrastructure sharing agreements, satellite transponder leases, IRUs and bandwidth leases and telecoms service contracts, as well as outsourcing and regulatory and licensing issues.
