TESTIMONIAL: We have been working with DZP for over 10 years now and can highly recommend them as the first choice law firm for us concerning the most complicated matters.. They have been our key legal and tax advisor and have assisted us on various matters relating to our investments in Poland of a value exceeding billion Euro, including for example corporate affairs, greenfield projects, state aid issues, legislative initiatives, transportation, litigation, tax and labour law matters and many other issues. The lawyers and tax advisors we work with always put effort into understanding our business goals and operations, we can trust their advice and know that they always have our best interests in mind. They have a very business oriented approach and are very effective in reaching the agreed goals. Marcin Krakowiak, Paweł Pioruński and Marek Świątkowski deserve individual recognition for their advisory throughout the years.”.
