Main practice areas
Corporate law and M&A
Corporate law and M&A constitute important
practice areas of PSB Legal. The firm covers
all aspects of these areas. Its lawyers have a
wealth of experience in the establishment,
transformation, merger, de-merger and
dissolution of Polish companies, as well as
insolvency procedures, including international
insolvencies. PSB Legal has advised on
numerous reorganisations (including cross-
border mergers). The firm advises international
clients on the acquisition of Polish companies,
including in the course of privatisation
processes or public takeover proceedings.
Thanks to its lawyers’ many years of experience
and specialisation, PSB Legal also covers areas
of law relating to transactions, such as antitrust
law (including merger clearance), labour law,
civil commercial law, real estate law and IP law
– all from a single source.
Real estate
Real estate law is one of the main areas of
PSB Legal’s advice. Its lawyers represent
owners and developers, institutional investors
and lenders, property managers, landlords and
tenants in real estate matters. For many years,
PSB Legal has been advising, among other
things, international corporate groups on
industrial real estate settlements all over
Poland and on the countrywide expansion
of international retail corporations. The firm
advises investment companies on Polish real
estate transactions and also has extensive
experience in project development, in particular
in the case of greenfield investments and the
development of shopping centres.
IP, IT and unfair competition law
PSB Legal’s lawyers offer a considerable
breadth of experience in IP transactional and
advisory work, covering the full range of IP
subjects in both a domestic and international
context. The firm protects brands, trademarks
and designs against infringements, including
product piracy. PSB Legal cooperates closely
with customs offices to identify counterfeits
and prevents such products from reaching the
European market. Since infringements of
trademarks are often acts of unfair competition,
PSB Legal also has a wide range of experience
in all legal aspects involving protection against
acts of unfair competition. Furthermore, PSB
Legal’s lawyers have broad experience
advising on copyright matters such as the
protection and transfer of intangible assets
(eg, licences and trademarks). PSB Legal’s
team advises international clients on an
ongoing basis on broadcasting rights,
marketing and organisational matters in
connection with events.
