Working with us
Kasia Durlik and Joanna Haftka work together on our Polish desk. Kasia is a Dutch lawyer with Polish roots and Joanna specialises in Polish law.
Born in Warsaw, Kasia moved to the Netherlands when she was 6 years old. After studying law at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Kasia graduated in 2009. As a lawyer, Kasia is an expert in contract law and handling international disputes. Her Polish roots combined with her ability to speak both the Polish and Dutch language fluently, cuts out the middle man and allows her to be the sole point of contact for both customers and counter-parties.
Obtaining her Master of Law at the University of Gdansk, in North Poland, Joanna Haftka began her legal career working in various legal and commercial capacities at a range of large Polish companies. Since joining Bierens, Joanna now focuses primarily on civil law, but is also involved with many other areas of Polish law.
Together, with their expertise in contract, corporate, civil, liability and procedural law, Kasia and Joanna can support you with all your contract requirements and business disputes. Utilising their knowledge and expertise, they can ensure your company is protected, when conducting business with a Polish company.
We can be an extended arm of your company if required. Especially, for long term, complex projects, we can act as senior legal counsels, supporting your legal department. Members of our team with specific knowledge and expertise can be hired to enhance your performance and reach your goals quicker. Whether it’s acquiring a company in Poland, merging or setting up a new branch, we can become part of your team.
