I'm a partner in our Intellectual Property Group, based in Warsaw. I'm an experienced IP litigator (trademarks, patents and designs) and handle brand portfolio management matters.

Since 2006, I have been advising clients from a variety of sectors (from life sciences and FMCG to publishing and sports) on protecting their intellectual property rights and combating unfair competition.

With extensive experience in IP litigation and prosecution, including patent disputes (chiefly in the pharma sector), I develop global protection strategies in the pre-trial and trial phases and prepare freedom to operate reports and invalidity/non-infringement opinions. I also advise on the issues of counterfeited goods, parallel imports of branded products, as well as the exhaustion of intellectual property rights.

I advise on pharmaceutical advertising, retail and wholesale distribution, reimbursement and borderline products, and co-authored the first Polish commentary on the Polish Act on Pharmaceutical Law 2009.

In other areas of IP, I provide advice and guidance on the management of trademarks and design portfolios, representing our clients in proceedings before the Polish Patent Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office.

My practice also encompasses the infringement of intellectual property rights online, especially domain name recovery and keyword advertising. I represent our clients in proceedings before common courts as well as before the Court of Arbitration for Internet Domains at the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications.

I am an arbitrator and a lecturer at the Polish Chamber of Patent and Trademark Attorneys.
