Offices in Paris and Warsaw

We provide our clients with the highest standards of legal advisory and complex dispute resolution proceedings.

Our Law Firm offers comprehensive legal services to individuals and organizations of all sizes in national and international matters.

On the international platform we are mainly involved in leading our French and Polish clients through various commercial possibilities of cooperation resulting from Poland’s accession to the European Union. We act efficiently and with substantial knowledge of those two cultures and terrains to complete deals and resolve complexities.

We are familiar with the European Common Market’s legal and economic rules which help us to understand our individual and institutional clients needs, new business opportunities and make us competent to help them to achieve their goals.

Among the European Union Member Countries, France (contrary to all appearances) is one of the most important business partners of Poland. We can observe an increasing number of companies involved in joint investments. Applying the European employment policy the French labor market is open for the free movement of workers since the 1st of July 2008.

Our lawyers navigate the complex business and know individual legal needs related to the “ every day ” reality on the national arenas of France, Poland and of the European Common Market as well. Based on the rich experience of our lawyers Copernic Avocats can find innovative and practical legal solutions for you.
