Unity Line

The firm: The LSW law firm was founded in 1998. The current managing partners, Boguslaw Lesnodorski and Maciej Slusarek, were among its founders.

Setting up their own practice did not only spring from dreams from the days in law school but mainly from a fascination with the English model of offering legal services. The LSW founders assumed from the beginning that they would be professional and trusted advisers to their clients, understanding their needs and finding the most effective solutions. In that time, this was an alien attitude for many renowned law firms and even today, it is something that sets LSW apart and gives it a competitive advantage. Even more so, since years of practice have allowed elaborating LSW’s standards, which check out beautifully in the European business environment.

Areas of practice: LSW Lesnodorski Slusarek and Partners has been advising Polish and international corporations and social organisations since 1998. Over 50 LSW lawyers in Warsaw, Gdansk, and Katowice ensure the legal security of business enterprises, structure effective legal solutions for M&A transactions and advise in matters regarding safeguarding of intellectual property, as well as representing clients in court cases. LSW is the only Polish law firm affiliated with the World Link for Law, a network of international law firms.

LSW has experience in setting up SPV companies with optimum tax structures, advising on transactions in the media, advertising and entertainment sector, and in drafting complex contracts protecting the rights of film producers or music labels.
