Career

For many years Krzysztof has dealt with matters pertaining to consumer law and combating unfair competition (including, in particular, issues regarding so-called slotting fees).

He is also highly experienced in resolving domain name disputes, assisting clients to reclaim “cyber-squatted” internet domain names before the relevant dispute arbitration courts.
