Robert Nogacki

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;
– protection of assets from creditors;
– succession planning.

The core business of Skarbiec Law Firm is widely understood legal and financial advisory, covering areas such as:

– international tax planning;
– protection of assets from future creditors;
– legal advice;
– precedent-setting court disputes.
– comprehensive representation before tax authorities and administrative courts
– crisis management – bankruptcy, death, divorce, unlawful criminal allegations, a unique opportunity to sell the company to the investor, the acquisition of a competitor’s company.

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. The uniqueness of the Law Firm lies in fact that there are already created and implemented innovative legal, tax and financial structures, which are necessary to achieve business objectives as well as an efficient operational management.

Skarbiec Law Firm assists in the management of almost 1000 companies, foundations and trusts as well as other corporate vehicles in more than 50 countries and territories. The total value of assets of these enterprises amounts to over PLN 2.5 billion and is still growing.

The range of services offered by our law firm within the scope of companies’ establishment and administration is designed in a way that ensures that entities incorporated by us operate with the ‘plug and play’ method. That means that our clients receive a fully functional corporate structure which can be managed remotely from Poland, without the need to take international trips, bear extra costs or have specific knowledge of international trade law.

Where a structure described above is created, Skarbiec undertakes to administer the whole vehicle, including to take all the actions related to company incorporation, maintenance but also – among others – to fulfill the constant, current company and commercial law obligations (holding shareholders’ meetings, submitting annual returns, etc.) as well as observe book-keeping and accounting responsibilities (if applicable).

It is the duty of our law firm to engage local subcontractors as far as it is necessary to use their services, to rentPolandthe company’s registered office, handling incoming and outgoing correspondence and managing documentation.

As a result, the client may direct and control the whole international structure without the need to leave Poland.

Furthermore, Skarbiec cooperates with several dozens of financial institutions, including, among others, these from Liechtenstein, Monaco, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Andorra and Hong Kong.

Legal advisor Robert Nogacki, owner of Skarbiec Law Firm, has received the title of the Overseas Agent of the Government of Anguilla – British Overseas Territory. This enables him – as the only person in Eastern Europe – to register and enter companies directly into the commercial register of Anguilla.

A recent success story involved the coordination of a team of lawyers in creation of an international holding structure. The individual entities were located in 20 different jurisdictions. Areas of advice involved: the interpretation of pharmaceutical law on supported markets, analysis of consumer rights and interests of the seller in the context of the regulations on online marketing, and securing the concluded transaction. Skarbiec Group has also prepared a complete documentation for legal transactions and documentation of corporate companies. The value of the transaction was 17,000,000 EUR.

Recently, we expanded the portfolio of our customers and increase market share through the launch of the branch in Malta. Our current clients are primarily wealthy individuals who are looking for solutions that will protect the private property against claims related to their business activity, or who think about the long-term plan for the future of their families through such solutions as a private foundation or a change of tax domicile.
