Arbitration

We focus our efforts only on the most effective methods of dispute resolution and willingly resort to arbitration when required. Dispute resolution is not only one of the key areas of our expertise, but also a passion of one of the firm’s founders.

Bartłomiej Jankowski heads the Arbitration practice and is admitted to the list of arbitrators in the Court of Arbitration of the Polish Chamber of Commerce. Bartłomiej is a frequent lecturer on arbitration and alternative methods of dispute resolution at the British Law Centre at the Law and Administration Faculty of the University of Warsaw, the University of Cambridge, and the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw. Partner Roman Iwański also has extensive experience in arbitration, especially in the complex technical variety, when there is a need to employ party-appointed experts.

We appreciate the need to be cost-cautious in arbitration and for the client to be well informed about the entire process, including on costs. Whenever, in the interest of the client, we look for favourable settlement avenues. We advise and accompany our clients in negotiations and mediation, as well as providing support in concluding settlement agreements. Our extensive experience provides us with the ability to offer tested strategies that are tailored to specific needs of our clients.

We also offer arbitration services based on international investment treaties to both private investors and governments as well as investment agreements between investors and States. International Investment Arbitration is a good alternative to settling investment disputes by the national courts of the host State or through diplomatic protection.
