Bronze - Individuals: enforcement and litigation

A fixture of the Polish legal landscape for over 25 years, DZP has long enjoyed a deep foothold in the technology, media and telecommunications space. For example, it recently represented Golden Media in a dispute over the registration and use of the name of a major TV show which was of vital importance to the company. Another notable highlight was a brief for publisher Bauer, which saw Aleksandra Auleytner and Jarosław Konecko prevailed in an infringement dispute concerning numerical 100 and 200 marks against a competitor. Division captain Auleytner has an affinity for new technologies and the issues they present, translating complex legal matter into easily digestible guidance. Konecko’s extensive understanding of ancillary disciplines such as copyright and domain names is a real advantage for entities seeking wraparound solutions.
