Modzelewska & Paśnik

Modzelewska & Paśnik provide comprehensive competition law advice on issues related to distribution.

We have been engaged in numerous contentious cases before the Polish Competition Authority and the courts in proceedings concerning RPM, territory allocation, pricing policies and refusal to supply.

Our team assists companies during planning and roll-out of strategic sales projects. We have helped set up a selective distribution system, reviewed agency and exclusivity agreements and advised on the use of Big Data. We also provide compliance reviews of sales schemes.

We have been recognised as the best competition law firm in Poland by the Rzeczpospolita ranking.
