Jakub Urbanowicz

Partner, attorney-at-law

He joined SK&S in 2011 and was promoted to Partner in the Litigation and Arbitration Department in 2024. His legal work during this time has been characterized by a strong focus on court and arbitration proceedings, representing diverse clients, including major international corporations, in complex and multijurisdictional high-value legal disputes valued up to PLN 2 billion. His areas of practice encompass a broad range of disputes, including corporate and post-M&A cases, restructuring/bankruptcy, but also personal rights protection.

He is experienced in managing cases at all court levels, including the Supreme Court, and has a solid history of successful cassation appeals. His expertise in arbitration is extensive, with a track record of domestic and international arbitration under the SA KIG, SA Lewiatan, ICC, SIA, and SCC arbitration rules, with places of arbitration in Warsaw, London, Geneva, and Stockholm.

In 2019, he supplemented his experience with an internship at the renowned Hanotiau & van den Berg arbitration law firm in Brussels and has since shared his knowledge and experience through a teaching tenure at SWPS University, plus a number of speaking engagements.

He is recognized for his legal expertise as well as for an approachable, client-focused manner. Clients commend – dare he say recommend him for – his thorough understanding of legal processes and ability to address their needs effectively thanks to this combination of business orientation and personal accessibility. His professional excellence has been recognized in the Expert Guides Rising Stars for commercial arbitration - one of only two in Poland - and in the Legal 500 for dispute resolution.
