Olesiński & Wspólnicy Throughout 16 years of market presence in the areas of law, tax, accounting and business analytics Olesiński & Wspólnicy has developed an innovative approach to working with clients, which goes far beyond the legal advice offered by most law firms. Operating as the O&W group, which also includes an analytical hub (O&W Analytics), allows Olesiński & Wspólnicy to assist clients in every area of business. The in-house analytical and technological hub ensures that each of the client’s cases can be viewed from two perspectives: legal and business, with the awarded transaction being an excellent example of the comprehensiveness of the firm’s actions. Focusing on the continuously growing TMT industry, Olesiński & Wspólnicy positions itself as a team of entrepreneurs using new technologies in their own business and focusing on creating original IT tools. This makes it possible to understand the challenges associated with the processes of implementing new technologies in action. Among the company’s customer portfolio there are: - start-ups receiving support in the process of obtaining external financing, with O&W’s support with preparing pitch-decks and legal advisory on the key milestones at the initial stage of a start-up’s life (like transfers of IP rights or obtaining IP protection – in over 40 jurisdictions); - scale-ups growing to large tech-oriented companies in the CEE Region, with O&W supporting their scale transition from local to global and securing compliance issues coming with rapidly growing userbases; - some of the largest stock-listed companies in Europe in the process of continuous growth and adapting to the changing legal environment.
