Skarbiec Law Firm is the largest Polish law firm that provides unique services hitherto unmatched by any other law firms on the Polish market. As the first law firm in Poland, it provides for its clients comprehensive assistance that goes beyond the traditional understanding of legal, tax and financial advisory.

Skarbiec Law Firm has built its market position by offering novel services on the Polish market, combining both legal and financial advisory along with strategic counselling and services within the scope of business intelligence and counter-intelligence. We advise on issues which due to their complexity and international nature have so far been undertaken only by foreign consulting firms.

We provide comprehensive services regarding holding structures, including but not limited to the following:

  • asset management;
  • transaction advisory services;
  • legal advisory;
  • tax consultancy;
  • accounting;
  • private banking abroad;

Due to the profile of our services, we advise clients in situations where it would be difficult to require any experience from them – bankruptcy, divorce, unjustified criminal charges, unlawful seizure of property by the tax authorities, along with the situations like an unique opportunity to sell the company to an investor or to acquire a competitor. These are, by definition, unique situations in which we are able to provide our experience derived from dozens of similar cases implemented in the past.

The biggest advantage of Skarbiec Law Firm is the complexity, complementarity and a lack of territorial and competence limitations while handling individual cases.
