Yesterday evening Polityka Insight announced the results of its second Ranking of Regulatory Law Firms 2017. We are pleased to inform you that our law firm has been distinguished in five out of six categories.

We are pleased to announce that both DZP and our experts have once again been recommended in the Chambers Global: The World's Leading Lawyers for Business ranking that was published yeasterday.

The Data Protection Regulation will apply on 25 May 2018.

This change takes data processing to an entirely different risk level and processing in compliance with personal data protection regulations will become even more essential for enterprises.So there is not much time for businesses to adapt their IT systems, internal procedures and staff training.
