Labour, Health and Safety Legal Advice Centre P. Pogłódek M. Różański S.C. was founded in 2007. The founders and partners are Przemysław Pogłódek and Maciej Różański - specialists in labour law, with extensive experience in legal advice for businesses within labour law and personnel policy.
The goal of our firm is to provide a professional and comprehensive service within labour law and social insurance law. The activity of the firm is not restricted to rendering legal services. Our activities surpass that. In order to meet market needs we introduced services in the field of personnel and remuneration matters (outsourcing of personnel and remuneration activities), health and safety, as well as fire protection. Consequently, the firm is divided into three sections:
We provide comprehensive legal advice based on experience in law and knowledge of economic background. Focusing on customer needs, which are our priorities, we always give clear recommendation and assist in its implementation.
Our employees have an in-depth knowledge of the merits and many years of experience gained in the service of businesses operating in different market sectors. We constantly improve our qualifications and skills by participating in and conducting trainings and workshops, as well as by publishing articles in professional journals. We co-operate with legal advisors, solicitors, notaries and academics employed by the University of Silesia in Katowice , as well as other universities.
The firm serves economic subjects established both domestically and abroad, mainly in Germany, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden. Our services and capabilities, which go far beyond the standard offer, make us a reliable partner and trustee for the biggest corporations investing in Europe. On the other hand, our broad experience and understanding of the economic climate attracts holding companies, corporations and other companies investing in Poland. We give advice to the largest companies in core market sectors, mainly transport, oil, food, energy and gas sectors. We also serve small local businesses, which are valuable partners for us. We always make sure that the services we render are of the highest merit and ethical standards assigned to the legal profession.
