Commercial arbitration

Arbitration is an effective method for resolving commercial disputes. It is an attractive alternative to court litigation, given its  greater confidentiality, the quicker nature of proceedings and the specialised expertise of the chosen arbitrators.

We can help in cases where one contractual party fails to properly perform their contractual obligations.

 

We successfully and dynamically represent entrepreneurs in both domestic and foreign arbitration. We provide clear advice and useful guidance at all stages of arbitral proceedings, including pre-claim, and in respect of both permanent arbitral institutions and ad hoc tribunals.

How can we help?

Our experts use their extensive practical knowledge and experience, gained from appearing in arbitration proceedings, to develop effective and successful case strategies. Our international team specialises in identifying potential risks and developing optimum strategies for the particular proceedings, parties and disputed issues.

We closely cooperate with our clients and keep them in the loop at all stages of the proceedings. We are able to provide efficient solutions and to maintain our leading position in disputes resolution due to many years of experience and success.

We also act as local counsel to support foreign arbitration teams which are conducting international arbitration proceedings in Poland.

We work closely with the client.
