ECOVIS LEGAL POLAND Law & Tax
We believe that business people are a very important part of Poland’s economy and that their actions contribute greatly to the development of the country. Therefore their companies need to function efficiently. We are certain that in a rapidly changing regulatory environment lawyers can provide significant support to business people. In our view a lawyer is a trustee of a company and not merely an expert on regulations. At the same time, we too are business people, which means we never create barriers between us and our clients.
