Our corporate and commercial work is at the heart of our practice. We take our time to understand the environment in which our business clients operate and the ways in which they want to work with us. This puts us in the perfect position to support them with their corporate requirements, whether they are complex transactions or general day-to-day operations.
We also advise companies both from a legal and practical perspective on compliance matters, including data protection.
General Corporate Work
The depth of our expertise enables us to advise on highly complex domestic and international commercial transactions, working closely with our other specialist groups.
We advise on a wide range of matters, including:
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- setting up and restructuring of companies and other commercial entities
- drafting and negotiating commercial agreements
- corporate governance
- impact of EU legislation on commercial transactions in Poland
- liquidation of commercial entities
- other commercial aspects of transactions, including regulatory and financial issues
The task of managing data is becoming increasingly complex for individuals and companies alike. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect across the European Union on 25 May 2018, changing the way companies around the world collect and handle personal data. The Polish Law on the Protection of Personal Data dated 10 May 2018 also came into effect on 25 May 2018.
GDPR significantly increases the rights of UE citizens to access their data electronically, to have it corrected or deleted and to scrutinise data processing. The penalties for non-compliance have also risen sharply, requiring proper judgement and design to be applied to data collection and rapid notification if data is lost.
We advise our clients on how best to achieve their strategic objectives whilst complying with this evolving regulatory regime. We can highlight gaps in compliance and explain how to implement the policies and procedures needed, as well as dealing with any incidents that may occur while processing personal data.
