Telecommunications and New Technologies

Wierzbowski and Partners provides legal advice to significant entities on the Polish telecommunications and media market. Providing comprehensive legal advice to our clients and cooperating in the implementation of specific projects, the lawyers of our law firm have gained experience enabling them to deal with the issues of telecommunications law, as well as taking into account the specificity of this market when considering problems in other branches of law.

Our experience in the area of telecommunications law includes advising on the regulation of the telecommunications market, proceedings before the President of the Office of Electronic Communications, (UKE), protection of end users’ rights, the process of frequency allocation, inter-operator cooperation, application of the Act on supporting the development of telecommunications services and networks. The subject of our legal analyses was the possibility of concluding an agreement with a regulatory body against the background of the applicable law, modification clauses in telecommunication contracts, examination of the status of a telecommunications undertaking or application of Articles 43a and 172 of the Telecommunications Law. We also dealt with issues related to restrictions and elimination of the phenomenon of so-called “artificial traffic” in the telecommunications network and issues related to so-called anti-fraud, as well as those related to the implementation of the must carry/must offer obligation.

Our lawyers also provide ongoing advice to clients from new technology and media industries, closely related to their activities. Our law firm’s services included, among others, creating new or adjusting existing internal regulations of internet portals run by such entities. Our lawyers also support clients in implementation processes of computer software important for this group of clients.

Our practice in this area is managed by Kamilla Pomorska, with the active participation of Prof. Marek Wierzbowski, and other experienced lawyers of our law firm.
