White & Case was one of the first global law firms to establish a presence in the CEE region. The firm opened its office in Poland in 1991. We provide a full scope of legal advisory services, offering comprehensive support for all business matters, including transactions and disputes, as well as legal assistance in day-to-day company operations. Our innovative approach creates original solutions to our clients’ most complex domestic and multijurisdictional deals and disputes.
White & Case’s Warsaw office has extensive experience in the Aerospace & Defense sector related to procurement procedures, finance, mergers and acquisitions and legal expertise encompassing a broad range of issues and regulations. Our lawyers have represented and continue to represent various aerospace and defense industry companies from the US, Europe, Israel and Republic of Korea, including in particular Lockheed Martin Corporation, companies from the Airbus Group, Harris Corporation, Pratt & Whitney, Patria, Oto Melara, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Kongsberg Defence Systems, AERO Vodochody (a Penta Investments group company), and Korea Aerospace Industries in transactions with the Polish Ministry of National Defence (MOD) and the Polish Ministry of Economic Development (previously Ministry of Economy) with respect to supply contracts and offset contracts.
To serve our clients, we need to demonstrate competence in a number of fields, including knowledge of procurement rules (both public procurement and specific MOD regulations), transaction advice, contract law, also regarding offset contracts, and follow-up compliance work, as well as potential litigation. We believe that, while you may find experts in these selected areas in several major law firms in Poland, our team is second to none with respect to all the above-mentioned capabilities combined.
White & Case is also the proud member of the GOCA.
