Law Firm KRS

The Law Firm of Knapek Rybczyński Szmit and Partners was established through the amalgamation of extensive experience in providing legal services to entrepreneurs and in handling individual client matters.

Our law firm in Katowice serves entrepreneurs operating both nationwide and internationally. Our clientele comprises small family businesses, expanding enterprises, non-governmental organizations, and public entities. Irrespective of the scale of their businesses, we approach each client with equal attention to detail and the highest standard of service. We provide ongoing legal support, participate in negotiations, assist in transformations, acquisitions, and mergers. We specialize in public procurement, supporting both public procurers and tendering contractors. What sets us apart is our individual approach to each legal matter and problem. Where others see a problem, we seek solutions. Our proprietary solutions have repeatedly helped overcome crisis situations for our clients.

The attorneys at our law firm represent individual clients in legal proceedings. We represent clients in divorce and marital property division cases, guiding them through the challenging procedure that requires making crucial life decisions. We support clients in inheritance matters, organizing property affairs, co-ownership issues, and settlements related to common assets.

Legal assistance in solving disputes and problems

We are a law firm specializing in economic and fiscal criminal law. Through our acquired experience in dealing with courts, prosecutors, police, and tax authorities, we have developed our own effective methods to assist our clients in extremely stressful situations. We understand that when confronted with law enforcement agencies, the most important factors are swift assistance, dedication, and surrounding the client with protective support. Every day, we strive to prove as convincingly as possible that entrusting us in such critical situations was the right decision.

While our main office is located in Katowice, we undertake cases throughout Poland and provide legal services to companies located beyond the Silesian Voivodeship. Thanks to technological advancements, we can provide legal assistance remotely, saving time and resources for our clients.

Taking into account the diverse needs of our clients and the necessity to tailor our services to individual requirements, we have prepared a wide range of options regarding settlements with the law firm.

The amount of compensation depends on the type of case (primarily on the complexity level of the case and the expected workload of the lawyer). The law firm employs the following billing systems:

  • Hourly billing system – In cases where the scope of work or its quantity cannot be estimated at the beginning of the collaboration, we propose a billing method based on the total number of hours worked. We assume that we settle based on the amount of time worked, the value of which is determined based on an established hourly rate.
  • Flat fee system – A fixed amount paid for monthly legal assistance for a specific case or client, regardless of the time and scope of work performed for the client.
  • Success fee system – For certain cases, additional compensation may be part of the remuneration for the actual outcome achieved through our work, such as winning a court dispute or obtaining another favorable resolution for our client.
