We are pleased to announce that, at the beginning of May, Dr Jarosław Łukawski, a competition law expert, joined our firm as a Partner and will head DZP's Competition Law Team.

Dr Łukawski has been advising on restrictive practices and control of concentrations between undertakings for many years. He has represented many clients before both the President of the Competition and Consumer Protection Office (UOKiK) and the European Commission. He is a specialist in creating distribution systems that are safe in anti-monopoly terms, including selective distribution and franchise networks. He also advises on unfair practices in the agro-food distribution sector and on countering payment backlogs. He is a Doctor of Juridical Science at the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Law Studies and author of articles on EU and national regulations on the control of concentrations between undertakings. He has been recommended numerous times in industry rankings such as Chambers Europe and Legal 500 EMEA. 

DZP's competition law team which Dr Łukawski is to head is also composed of two experienced experts: Maria Kanak, Counsel, and Marta Balcerowska, Senior Associate.

Maria specialises in advising on restrictive practices, particularly in the telecommunications sector. Her expertise also covers unfair use of contractual advantage in the agro-food sector. She has experience in inspections and searches conducted by the UOKiK President and was previously Deputy Director of the UOKiK Competition Department. 

Marta has many years’ experience in competition law and consumer regulations. She advises clients on developing distribution systems, relations with business partners, and devising pricing and discount policies. She supports clients in developing franchise networks and is an experienced adviser on concentrations between undertakings. She has been with DZP for over 10 years.

“I am very pleased to be heading such an experienced competition law team. The many years’ professional practice of each of the team members guarantees that the antitrust advice provided to our clients is of the highest standards.” says Dr Łukawski.
