Filip Balcerzak

Senior Associate

Dr. Filip Balcerzak, LL.M., Ph.D., attorney-at-law is admitted to the bar in two jurisdictions: Poland (adwokat) and Spain (abogado). He specializes in commercial dispute resolution at both national and international levels. He has successfully led cases for a variety of clients from different jurisdictions, utilising his fluency in English and Spanish.

He effectively combines professional and academic activities. He completed his LL.M. studies at the University of Ottawa, specializing in International Trade and Foreign Investment Law. Subsequently he was granted a Ph.D. in public international law by Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Ph.D. dissertation title: “Investor state arbitration and human rights”, written in English).

His broad academic experience in the field of international law allows him to think outside the box. This enables him to offer SSW’s clients solutions beyond those available in the local law.

  • Advising on the drafting of numerous contracts, including:
    • an international contract for the sale of borehole rights, including particular aspects concerning the choice of applicable law and the effectiveness of an arbitration clause
    • an international contract for the lease of an aircraft, concluded between entities from the United States of America, Lithuania and Poland, including clauses maximizing the protection of rights of the aircraft’s foreign owner
  • Providing ongoing procedural advice to an international mining group
  • Acting as counsel in numerous court and enforcement proceedings, including:
    • effectively enforcing the payment of a multi-million debt, which required the coordination of legal steps taken before both foreign and Polish courts, including insolvency proceedings, claims involving bad debts relief in connection with unpaid VAT, criminal proceedings and so-called Actio Pauliana lawsuits;
    • representing a market leader in a dispute against its competitor which had unlawfully used registered trademarks in Google’s AdWords system
