Commercial law


Commercial law firm Warsaw

Commercial law is the discipline of law that regulates the organisation of business entities and the commercial activities they undertake, e.g. the rules of operation, organisation, appointment and liquidation or the obligations of different types of entrepreneurs. Finding an effective commercial law firm in Warsaw is not difficult, but given that every business owner should have a trusted lawyer it is worth taking the time to find a specialist with whom you not only have a good understanding, but will also have efficient communication.
Commercial law is based on values such as the equality and autonomy of the will of economic agents, the prevalence of default rules, conduct in accordance with the principle of honesty and good morals and, above all, the exercise of the principles of business dealings – freedom of action to the extent permitted by law. The principles of commercial law derive from a wide variety of legal acts: from the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, the civil code, the commercial companies code, to the laws on freedom of economic activity, bankruptcy law or cooperative law. The commercial law system is complex and multifaceted, so it is advisable to engage experienced and reliable lawyers and attorneys-at-law.
