The firm

The LSW law firm was founded in 1998. The current managing partners, Bogus?aw Le?nodorski and Maciej ?lusarek, 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.
