About Me

I am a partner based in Warsaw. My main focus is e-commerce, IP and digital transformation.

For the last 13 years, I have specialised in advising on contentious soft IP matters, e-commerce business models and legal issues relating to new technologies, as well as handling matters relating to consumer, data protection, advertising and contract law.

I support clients on complex e-commerce projects, legal compliance within their business models, on litigation and proceedings before the data protection and consumer regulators, as well as with due diligence projects and development of IP management strategies.

I advise on online legal infringements, including high-profile cases of Internet platforms liability. I also regularly represent companies in criminal and civil proceedings regarding infringement of IP rights. I advise main players as well as start-ups.

I also regularly speak at conferences on issues surrounding e-commerce, IP and new technologies. I am recognised by legal directories as a leading expert in intellectual property law in Poland.
