Tomczak & Partners
Tomczak & Partners law firm emerges from the classic model of law firms from the 1990s, which dealt with all legal advice that a business client needed.
Since then, the subject of legal advice on the market has expanded a lot and today we do not deal with everything, but the practice and interests allowed us to obtain a noteworthy specialization in particular areas of law.
For many years we have been successfully dealing with labour law. Labour law has become a starting point for the development of these specialisations, which make up the broadly understood scope of compliance, i. e. anti-trust law, white collar crime and responsibility of collective entities, counteracting money laundering. In this way, we offer specialized advice in what we call compliance law in Polish.
At the same time, we are developing the second special quality of the Law Firm, which is related to restructuring law and transactions. In contrast to the first specialization, which can be called preventive, the latter specialization is primarily interventional, but at the same time it allows companies to choose new ways of business development, bringing prospects not only for security but also for success. This specialisation also integrates many areas of law that are part of the standard functioning of companies, which, among other things, is occasionally reflected in legal audits.
In addition, the special expectations of our clients have allowed us to gain special expertise in narrow, regulated or organisationally closed areas of law, such as in particular alcohol and tobacco law, but also in football law (assuming that such an area of law exists).
We work exclusively for business and business people. The main message of our activity is the conviction that there is no limit to the understanding of business by a lawyer, because a lawyer helps to assess business risk, one of the elements of which is only legal risk. The risk in business is basically indivisible.

Labour Law Office
Labour law is the most natural specialization in the case of a business law firm. This is because labour law is everywhere where business is. Only 20 years ago, however, offering advice on labour law appeared to law firms as a necessity rather than a choice by conviction. Here, however, a lot has changed and even more will change. There are large law firms on the market which deal exclusively with labour law. A great many new regulations have appeared in the legal system, mainly related to membership of the European Union and the growing cross-border freedom of employment. There are also a number of new claims, which from the point of view of corporate entities constitute a growing threat, and modern trade unions are appearing. Labour law has become a par excellence in a growing legal compliance building, full of connections with other legal areas of compliance. However, the most important reason for these changes is probably that the faster the employee grows and wants the economy to grow, the more important the employee is.
Our labour law team – we call it with an accent of perversity, but caused by respect for the importance and uniqueness of this area – the Labour Law Office consists of Michał Tomczak, Klaudia Kwoka and Marta Kozak.
We conduct regular training for our clients, publish our thoughts and, with the indispensable help of our clients, we reliably monitor the development and changes related to labour law.
