Beginnings abroad are not easy. When we change the country, we often encounter various obstacles: communication barriers, difficulty finding a job and renting a flat … You can change forever. However, nothing is as frightening as official questions that should be resolved shortly after their arrival. Legal complexity, including even a thorough familiarization with the employment contract or renting a flat, can be a problem at the beginning, especially if you still do not feel comfortable in that language. In such a situation it would be very useful to establish cooperation with a law firm, with whom we would consult our doubts. However, there is an “ale” – how to find such a company without knowledge of the Polish legal profession?
The first thing that comes to mind right now is to find opinions on the law firms that interest us on websites and online forums. You will also need all kinds of legal groups that can be found in popular social networks. We can also browse ads pages – in Poland it is mainly olx.pl and gumtree.pl. It is also interesting to look for offers in information magazines – such advertisements are usually written in simple language and do not require a high level of language skills.
What to look for when looking for a law firm?
When choosing a law firm one of the basic criteria should be experience. A company whose services are unsatisfactory, has no outlet and eventually falls. The duration of the labor market allows us to estimate the value of services provided by this law firm. This does not mean, however, that each newly created institution will be of low quality. In the case of newly established institutions, a good indicator of competence will be information about the practices and training provided by employees.
The second element that we should look at is the opinion about the institution. In the era of ubiquitous Internet, checking information on a given topic is not a big problem. The internet forums mentioned above will certainly help us.
And what about the previous office clients? The group of clients with whom the company cooperates tells us about its specialization – this criterion is particularly important for companies as it determines the effectiveness of the services provided. A long-standing law firm with companies on the international internal market confirms its qualifications – longer cooperation proves its effectiveness
It is important to pay attention to contact with the client and check that all decisions are made in accordance with the customer’s opinion. Every law firm must subordinate its behavior to customer requirements and be a good adviser. A team that works well and can work together is certainly more likely to succeed. The time of completion is also important. As clients, we take care to carry out the task as accurately as possible in the shortest possible time. A good office will meet our expectations.
