Dispute Resolution

Court disputes are an unavoidable part of business. We realise that the outcome of court or arbitration proceedings has a direct impact on a firm’s financial standing and that a lengthy trial or enforcement is a calamity for many businesses. Thus we try to ensure that the effect of our services translates into success in court and that the services we provide are as effective as possible in terms of both time and cost. The Practice is composed of 20 specialists working under the leadership of three Partners who have extensive experience in negotiations, arbitration and representing clients in court.

DZP’s lawyers represent Polish and foreign clients in disputes, acting for them in negotiations with business partners and before Polish and international institutions. Our experts act in common courts, the Supreme Court and the Constitutional Tribunal, and also in Polish and international arbitration tribunals.

We dedicate ourselves to each matter and our clients are kept regularly informed of the course of proceedings. Our know-how aids the market feeling that we gained in working with entities operating in various business sectors.

The Law Firm has handled numerous prominent cases in Poland for clients in, e.g. construction and infrastructure, industry, transport and communications, trade, finances and insurance, and also in the real estate and state administration sectors.
