• Company law and corporate services

    Setting up a company, day-to-day business management, building of capital structures or sale of shares - all of these may deceptively seem like simple processes to work out on your own. After all, every step can essentially be done online....

    AVOID CONFUSION NOT ONLY WITH ALL THE FORMAL DOCUMENTATION

    In reality, however, it is advisable to have a support of competent lawytworzeers with knowledge and experience from the very first stage. Why? Errors in formal communication and documentation of the company can cost a lot of lost time, money, unnecessary anxiety and stress.

    Care and full involvement of a professional lawyer from the beginning of building the business will allow to avoid many problems. In the future, such legal assistance will facilitate the processes accompanying the functioning and development of the company - in drafting contracts between shareholders, all kinds of transformations in the structure of the company (mergers, divisions and conversions of commercial companies), capital increase and even dispute resolution.

E-COMMERCE

Mateusz and his team have proven to me on more than one occasion that they are open to a client and their needs. It is always a challenge to have someone to explore how a company works in a short period of time. This team understands the online industry and came up with a strategy that not only solved our problem but also allowed the company to grow.

PRAWO UMÓW

Nasza współpraca trwa już kilka lat, co myślę jest doskonałym dowodem na to, że jestem z niej zadowolony. Cenię fakt, że kancelaria pomaga zarówno w większych negocjacjach, mniejszych sprawach z zakresu RODO czy praw konsumenta, jak również obsłudze korporacyjnej. Przyszedłem jedynie skorzystać z doradztwa w zakresie umów, a zyskałem partnerów, do których mam w 100% zaufanie.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

The key scope of our cooperation with Sawaryn I Partnerzy is ongoing legal services. The result of our joint activities, however, was an investment agreement amounting to PLN 1 mln for the development of our innovative project - Vinci Rithms - a system to analyze requests for proposal (RFP) based on machine learning. I am grateful to Mateusz for supporting us throughout the transaction and I certainly will not resign from further cooperation.
