The Law Office of

Stefan Nowakowski

Client’s welfare should be at the heart of the practice of law

The main focus of any lawyer’s practice should be the welfare of the client who needs to feel comfortable when entrusting the attorney with his or her legal affairs. You can trust the Law Office of Stefan Nowakowski to apply the highest professional standard based on expertise and strict adherence to the rules of professional ethics with particular attention to confidentiality. The law office is committed to maintaining good relations with the clients and ensuring their satisfaction with the service.

A graduate of the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Warsaw and the British Law Centre of the University of Cambridge, member of the Warsaw Bar Association, I started my own practice in 2007. For 10 years, I provided legal advice to the largest arms manufacturing company in the Polish market, representing it in a number of judicial proceedings across Poland. I now provide business advisory to commercial operators including a leading international fashion group and a medical services company and conduct legal proceedings on their behalf. I also represent individuals in various cases conducted before Polish courts, in particular with regard to real estate law and compensation. A major part of my private practice involves family law: divorce, maintenance, custody cases and division of property and assets.
