Commercial & Corporate Law

Legal support for commercial companies and other entities engaged in business activities is an essential element of their operation and development. Complex legal regulations and changing rules make professional legal assistance crucial for ensuring stability and compliance with applicable laws.

Well-prepared contracts, corporate documents, and rational management of legal-corporate matters are crucial for effective business operations. Proper legal support not only mitigates legal risks but also enables optimal solutions in crisis situations, minimises tax burdens, and promotes smooth day-to-day functioning.

The experts at Sadkowski and Partners, focusing on legal and corporate services for business entities (companies, sole proprietors, family foundations, and non-profit organizations), not only assist in establishing new entities and drafting corporate documents but also provide support throughout their operations and in the process of making key business decisions.

We have extensive experience in providing comprehensive legal support to business clients with foreign capital operating in Poland, as well as to Polish clients controlling companies abroad. Through numerous contacts with local law firms, we also assist in the creation and management of international corporate structures, both in terms of planning and implementing specific legal solutions.
