About Me

I am a Consultant in the Intellectual Property team in Warsaw.

I have advised companies in the media and entertainment sector since 2013, my clients include streaming platforms, social networks, record companies and press publishers, as well as entities operating in the IT and FMCG industries. I specialise in intellectual property law, e-commerce and digital transformation issues.

I also have experience in handling marketing and e-commerce cases. I support clients with the legal aspects of advertising, subscriptions, dark patterns, influencers and the Omnibus Directive. I participate in M&A transactions.

I am a member of a number of international industry organisations, including the World Intellectual Property Organisation (Arbitration and Mediation Centre - listed on the WIPO List of Neutrals), the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) and the International Trademark Association (INTA), among others. I am a member of the Council of Experts at the Advertising Council and take active part in the works of the Copy Advice Committee.

I am the author of numerous publications on intellectual property law and consumer law. I am a speaker at industry conferences. I have also lectured on copyright and intellectual property law at the SWPS University, as part of the 'School of Form" studies in design.

Clients appreciate my work as a reflection of which I have won recognition in rankings such as World Trademark Review and IP Stars (Notable Practitioner).

Before joining Bird & Bird, I gained my professional experience working in international law firms and as an in-house counsel at an e-commerce company.
