Allen & Overy was one of the first international legal practices to open an office in Poland in 1991. Since then, we've developed into a leading practice in all core groups with an outstanding reputation for our role in a number of large-scale landmark transactions.
We seek to combine extensive international experience of managing corporate and financial transactions with both expertise in new and complex legal areas, and excellent local law advice provided by top-class Polish and foreign lawyers.
We have developed a team of lawyers with specialisations covering Allen & Overy’s core practice areas. This enables us to staff major transactions locally, with the facility to involve experts from other Allen & Overy offices if required. Our lawyers cooperate across practice groups to offer clients integrated and business-oriented solutions.
