We advise private equity funds in tax planning for investment structures in Poland, financing of investments, asset acquisition, distribution of profits, and tax-effective exit from investments. We also advise on issues related to investing in Poland via Polish or foreign investment funds.

Within our tax practice, we have established a separate team specialising in serving the financial industry. The special nature of the team derives not only from the experience within the sector of the tax advisers on the team, but also from the participation of qualified lawyers advising financial companies in fields not directly connected to tax, including banking and project finance, capital markets, industry-specific regulations, transactional security, information security, outsourcing, electronic banking, and other issues specific to the financial services sector.

Our clients are banks (including investment banks) operating in Poland, branches and representative offices of foreign banks, brokerage houses, investment funds, insurance companies, operators of payment card systems, as well as foreign banks and other financial institutions.

We advise Polish and foreign investors in real estate projects, including tax advice on planning, financing, implementation and exit from the investment, as well as real estate tax issues.

We provide tax advisory services to individuals with respect to their personal and family assets. The combination of knowledge and experience in Polish and international tax law with other fields of law (such as family law and inheritance) enables us to provide clients with legal and tax solutions involving asset management, investments, and estate planning.
