Marcin has represented his clients before Polish General Courts and before the Supreme Court [Sąd Najwyższy], including as the author of cassation appeals of significant importance for the Polish system of justice), and also, among others, before the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris, the Arbitration Court of the National Chamber of Commerce in Warsaw, and before ad hoc arbitration tribunals appointed in accordance with the UNCITRAL Rules.
Over the many years of cooperation, Mr Marcin Robenek has always demonstrated an outstanding legal knowledge and litigation experience, as well as a business approach to cases entrusted to him.
The flexibility, efficiency, and above-average commitment of Attorney Robenek to the cases that he handles are directly reflected in the successes that he has undoubtedly achieved.
We are now standing at the threshold of a global process of technological and organisational transformation of businesses. This will inevitably involve numerous contestable issues, which will often have to be resolved in court.
In this changing world, the role of a litigation lawyer gets a new meaning. He or she cannot be just a passive observer but must also become an active participant in the stage of changes that are happening around us. This, however, calls for understanding of the client’s needs and business, and it requires an individual approach and, above all, commitment and openness.
In my work and in every case, guided by the above values, I aim to build for each Client a safe haven that will protect them against the hurricane of legal risks raging through their business environment due to the dispute that has arisen.
