At Olesiński & Wspólnicy, we believe that only by acting in accordance with our values can we fully enjoy our success. Among these values, what has united us most over many years is our love for animals and respect for nature. Every day we work pro bono to protect animals – we fight for their rights, we conduct proceedings in cases of animal abuse, or we seek out new homes for those who have been abandoned. In fact, many of our employees have adopted dogs and cats into their homes. Our lawyers also help the Ekostraż Foundation, regularly advising them, and this has led to many successes in court proceedings regarding animal abuse. In addition, we train volunteers and support social animal protection inspectors, who we teach how to act when collecting neglected animals. As part of our ongoing mission to help, we respond to police questions concerning the regulations which should be applied during interventions.

In 2020, we celebrated O&W’s 15th anniversary in line with our values – by continuing our tradition of helping the Ekostraż Foundation. We launched a fundraiser and made a donation to build an enclosure for animals at the Ekostraż shelter in Wrocław so that these creatures would be able to play and socialize in a supportive environment. A number of O&W staff will also be engaged in the process of building the shelter itself.

As 70% of the O&W team are women, they prove that competence is not a matter of gender, but of talent, passion and commitment. We support our female staff in many ways, and every year, on International Women’s Day, we engage in the ‘Shoe Box’ project in aid of women in need.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, there is the ‘Art of Support’ Programme through which we foster the activities of young artists who are at the starting points of their careers. We wish to help people with talent to develop their businesses and so we offer them financial support as well as legal or marketing consultancy.

In 2019, we received one of the most prestigious Polish rankings – a distinction for pro bono activities by a law firm – in the daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita.

We support the concept of an economy of values. As part of this, we create and cultivate relationships by actively participating in the Open Eyes Economy Summit movement.


Development is an inseparable aspect of our business. At O&W, we have been advising international companies entering the Polish market and developing their activities in Poland since 2005. At the same time, we support companies carrying out cross-border projects or planning to expand outside Poland.

In order to provide specialized and dedicated support to entrepreneurs, our experts work at three international desks, devoted to various regions:

  • the German desk,
  • the Spanish desk,
  • the Asia desk (China, Japan and Korea).

Our international desks are made up of attorneys, tax advisors, and certified accountants, and features exclusive support for German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean companies provided by native speakers on our staff. This allows us to provide professional legal and tax advice in up to 7 languages.

To complement our international expertise, we operate within a network of proven and trusted consulting companies, which enables us to provide effective advice on an international level. We are a co-founder and member of The European Legal Network (ELN), consisting of firms specializing in a wide range of tax and legal areas. Its members are located in Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Poland, and cooperate in order to deliver cross-border legal services.

Apart from the ELN, we cooperate with companies belonging to the Moore Global network.

We are proud to work with international capital groups, publicly listed companies and leaders of domestic and European markets in sectors such as the automotive industry, e-commerce, chemicals, textiles, food, IT, energy, and construction.

As O&W, we have been working with foreign chambers of commerce and industry for years and take part in international industry conferences, cooperating with, among others, the Polish-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and with the Polish-Spanish Chamber of Commerce.
