Since the beginning of our activity, O&W has been supporting foreign clients, including international capital groups, developing their business and investing in Poland.

 

We had the pleasure to advise both the largest international corporations and family businesses on their entry into the Polish market. We are pleased to be able to observe their development and further investments.

 

The experience gained over 14 years has allowed us to build a team of specialists who understand the expectations and challenges faced by foreign investors, especially at the beginning of their operations in Poland.
