Wardyński & Partners

Common Law Desk

Having been active on the Polish legal market for over 30 years, we realise that more and more matters involve structures based on or at least inspired by common-law systems (predominantly English and American).

Thus to properly assist clients under Polish law, more and more often lawyers need to have a sufficient understanding of certain common-law principles.

Our Common Law Desk comprises 8 dual-qualified lawyers (Polish adwokat or attorney-at-law and also solicitors of England and Wales) and the founding partner of the firm, Tomasz Wardyński CBE.

The team members represent most of the firm’s areas of expertise, including such core practices as dispute resolution, corporate and M&A, employment, banking & finance, and energy, to name a few.

We offer

  • A thorough grasp of common-law principles (based on English law)
  • An understanding of the legal consequences of applying specific common-law structures in contracts and other instruments
  • An ability to effectively implement certain common-law solutions to achieve similar effects under Polish law.
