20Th anniversary of SMM Legal

This year SMM Legal is celebrating its 20th anniversary. It’s a unique opportunity for us to both look back and into the future.


The new generation lawyers – that was the motto of our firm when founded in 2003. Apart from innovation, our key strength was specialisation. ‘The times of the one-man-orchestra lawyer are a song of the past’, Mr. Przemysław Maciak said at the time. Our ambition was to establish in Poznań a law firm capable of competing with the strongest players in the country.

One year into our practice, our team was composed of 7 lawyers. Today, after 20 years, we have as many as 100 employees providing services across two offices – in Warsaw and in Poznań. We focus on legal advisory in the field of economic, energy and digital corporate transition.

‘Over 20 years, not only have we gained extensive experience spanning various field of the law, but also established ourselves as a trustworthy partner for our Clients,’ says Mr. Przemysław Maciak, Managing Partner at our Firm. ‘It is the trust they have placed in us that drives us to continuously improve and adapt our services to the changing business needs,’ adds Mr. Maciak.

We have been successfully representing Clients, assisting them both in their daily business challenges as well as in complex transactions and international disputes. With our innovative approach, we always keep up with the latest trends and changes to the law and regulatory environment. This is why we are able to provide our Clients with the most effective, targeted solutions.

As the other managing partner, Mr. Aleksander Czech, is right to note, ‘Our Firm brings together a team of qualified lawyers for whom their work is also their passion. Their professionalism, expertise and dedication are the very foundation of our success. It is thanks to them that our firm has evolved and kept up the pace with the dynamic trends in the legal world, so as to provide top quality services.

Thank you for being with us on this journey for 20 years. We welcome the challenges that are yet to come!
