O&W and the society

SOCATO Art Gallery started its activity in 2009 at the initiative of Zofia and Rafał Olesiński and Karolina Jaklewicz – the graduate of Fine Arts Academy in Wroclaw, currently assistant in the Department of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture on the Faculty of Architecture at Wroclaw University of Technology.

We are strongly associated with Olesiński&Wspólnicy, since the beginning of our existence. In the first years of activity, the Gallery presented art in selected areas of Wroclaw, including interiors of O&W. Continuous substantive and financial support from O&W allows us to realize our original gallery program, which enables support for young and talented artists creating valuable art regardless of its sales potential.

We have come a long way, starting from presenting paintings at O&W offices up to the Gallery, under the patronage of the Association of Polish Artists and Designers located at Solny Square. This is also the stage, at which paintings from the private O&W collection hang on the walls of O&W offices, not only in Wroclaw, but also in Warsaw, Cracow and Gliwice.

O&W support takes on an extra dimension, when we consider the national Review of Young Art “The New Blood” organized by Socato once a year thanks to contribution from O&W. This is one of the most opinion-forming competitions for young artists. Due to this, we significantly mark our presence on the cultural map of Wroclaw and Poland. Our contacts with

O&W are not only exchange of invoices and e-mails, but also exchange of positive energy, ideas and inspirations. It is nice to share time with exceptional people, and exactly such people create O&W.

We have cooperated with O&W lawyers from the very beginning of Ekostraż operations, i.e. since 2010. They support association’s activity completely free of charge, in terms of legal protection of animals, including representation of interests of animals injured by people in criminal, administrative and court-administrative proceedings.

During such a long period of cooperation, they showed themselves not only as professional attorneys-at-law, but also friendly people, full of empathy to harmed animals.

Their knowledge and involvement lead to conviction of many perpetrators responsible for suffering of animals (including sentences for imprisonment) and, for the first time in Poland, to accusation of a mayor of a city for cruelty to homeless animals, which should be provided with care by virtue of law. O&W showed themselves as absolute law enthusiasts, who really enjoy solving practical problems connected with application of still imperfect animal protection law.

We have found partners in them, who dream about improving the quality of the penal provisions in the Animal Welfare Act, the same as we do. Currently, we are working together on proposed amendments to this Act. The National Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Ministry of Justice are interested in our joint legislative ideas, whose aim is to increase efficiency in prosecuting and punishing perpetrators responsible for crimes against animals.

Cooperation with them is a great pleasure and invaluable support in the fight for a serious treatment of animals’ interests in Poland, both by ordinary people and authorities applying law.

O&W lawyers support parents of wards of the "To Rescue Children With Cancer" Foundation in dealing with complicated legal issues. As part of our common activities during “Oncoschool” meetings, O&W team members performed presentations entitled “Applicant’s guide”, “Benefits and rights of parents” and “Sources of financing”. O&W lawyers also provide advice individually to interested parents.

In our opinion, Olesiński & Wspólnicy is distinguished by:

• professional preparation – substantive material is complete and issues cover the entire scope of elaborated subject;

• flexibility – skilful adjustment of knowledge to the specific nature and needs of Przylądek Nadziei;

• punctuality – we always meet the deadlines;

• openness and desire to share the prepared materials – every interested person received a presentation by electronic means,

• accuracy – each additional question is analysed by O&W lawyers and the material is supplemented with answers;

• availability – each parent can ask a question by e-mail or telephone;

• communicativeness – lectures are given in simple and understandable language, interactively or in a form of dialogue with participants, and include practical guidelines and examples,

• empathy and a human approach – the smile.

O&W lawyers specialize in numerous areas of law, such as, among others, personal data protection, media law or new technologies law. These areas are very important in view of new challenges for human rights in the 21st century, becoming increasingly common. At the same time, O&W lawyers proved themselves to be reliable specialists of high social vulnerability and empathy. O&W is distinguished by openness to cooperation with non-government organizations, great involvement in pro bono activities and generosity in action, also under pressure of time.

In one of the cases directed to the HFHR at a late stage, we were concerned that we would not be able to find a pro bono law office to prepare an appeal against sentence to the Supreme Court, due to very short term and complicated legal issue appearing in the case. O&W declared their intention to support us very quickly and took comprehensive care of our client. Without support provided by O&W lawyers, we would not be able to act so effectively to protect human rights in court proceedings.
