“Our mission is to support clients in increasing the value of their business. From the beginning of our operation under the WPW brand, our aspiration has been to work in partnership with our clients, whom we want to accompany in both daily and strategic challenges. Together with clients, we develop tailor-made legal and tax solutions that allow them to set sail – this would not be possible without a good understanding of the client’s business realities. Privately, I’m an avid sailor and I know that sometimes the wind is blowing in the sails and sometimes there’s a flare, but there’s always a haven somewhere we want to reach. Similarly, in business, often entrepreneurs are not influenced by external circumstances, which are once better, once worse, but they persevere towards their goal based on a well-chosen crew. We accompany clients at different periods of their development – we believe that at each of them we are able to bring noticeable value to the client.”

Grzegorz Proksa
managing partner

“Organizational culture is extremely important to us. We work on demanding projects, difficult in terms of content, often carried out under time pressure. Therefore, basing the principles of cooperation with our experts on the basis of mutual trust, respect for personal priorities, and support for development is extremely important to us. Over the years, we have managed to develop a model of partnership with people in managerial positions, which allows us to attract the best experts in the markets. Meanwhile, a clear career path, mentoring program and competency models create a kind of roadmap for young, ambitious people who want to spread their wings quickly as tax and legal advisors.”

How do we support our customers?

1

For a good start

We accompany clients in the implementation of new investments – we support in the choice of the legal form of the planned enterprise and advise in the selection of the optimal form of business activity so that the enterprise is ready for further rapid growth. We help start-ups in special economic zones. We work with the creators of start-ups, whom we advise on the most effective business model, taking into account the specifics of the industry and the company’s plans for further development.

2

Early stage of development

As the company grows, we assist clients in all matters related to creating optimal conditions for further growth for the company: we advise and advise on forms of business financing, suggest optimal forms of management involvement, help achieve tax relief for companies and the employees they employ. We work out optimal conditions for growth in the area in which we specialise.

3

Mature business

Even fast-growing plants must at some point become woody. We verify whether our partners’ businesses are tax-proof or tax-prone – we conduct tax reviews, develop policies and procedures to help manage tax risks, check that the chosen business model remains tax compliant. If necessary, we support our clients with tax audits, proceedings with the tax authorities or court proceedings.

4

Transition phase

We advise our business partners at important moments in the life of their companies. We assist in making strategic decisions regarding the future and further development of the company, e.g. we help to change a sole proprietorship into a limited liability company, a limited partnership or a joint stock company. We assist in the consolidation of companies operating within capital groups, the spin-off of selected business segments into separate entities and in the transformation of legal form.
