The Warsaw office of Garrigues, the largest law firm in Spain and Portugal, is expanding in Poland, taking on new local staff and moving into new fields. Apart from Spanish partners, the firm mainly employs Polish lawyers to be able to better identify the problems of its clients. An increasing number of non-Spanish companies are using the firm's services.

The Garrigues Warsaw office is dealing with an ever broader range of issues because the law firm is following a course of steady internal structural expansion. It deals with fields including real estate, labor law, competition and consumer law, infrastructure and EU funds, renewable energy, investment project funding and debt restructuring.

The real estate department at Garrigues provides legal services regarding all aspects of the real estate market. Agata Jurek-Zbrojska, a legal adviser and head of the real estate department, specializes in advice on real estate sale, funding and lease as well as advice on rent contracts and contracts for construction services, architectural services, general contracting and project management. Additionally, her professional interests include issues associated with infrastructure and urban redevelopment, which are becoming more important.

Tomasz Opaliński, a legal adviser and senior lawyer at the real estate department, apart from dealing with real estate issues, is developing a public law practice with a special focus on public-private partnership. The national and local government authorities are pinning a lot of hopes on this form of cooperation between the public and private sector, especially in the current economic situation.

Lawyer Justyna Dubielak is head of the firm's department which represents clients before public and arbitration courts in cases involving civil, commercial and labor law. She also advises clients in the area of labor law and competition and consumer law.

"The growing number of our clients, including Polish companies, shows that they appreciate our commitment and expertise in the matters we deal with," says Jurek-Zbrojska. "Customer satisfaction and the professionalism of services we render are our priorities. This is why our lawyers' professional development and the expansion of our staff of Polish specialists is of utmost importance to us. Four lawyers joined us in the second half of last year alone."

The broad experience of Polish lawyers and their knowledge of the Polish market and Polish regulations mean that Garrigues clients are provided with legal services of the highest standard. And Spanish standards of professionalism adapted to Polish conditions, coupled with the law firm's international character, guarantee customer service of the highest quality.
