Commercial Law

Providing ongoing legal services to entrepreneurs is an important task requiring not only knowledge of legal regulations, but also awareness of the economic context of undertaken activities, while understanding the supported business.

We advise clients at every stage of their economic activity, both in current operations and at the investment stage, in addition to representing them in any litigation proceedings and negotiations with business partners. Our advisory services cover all forms of entrepreneurial activity relating to trade in goods and services.
