- Pro bono -
We are a young and dynamically growing law firm. We are successful, but we do not forget about those who need help. Our law firm has been engaged in several pro publico bono activities for years. We constantly support various charity campaigns, especially those aimed at supporting children and youth.
The Victoria Jankowska Foundation was established in November 2015 in honour of the tragically deceased harpist. The aim of the foundation is to preserve the memory of the artist by supporting all artistic initiatives of the young generation. Our law firm supports the foundation by providing it with free legal assistance.
The Grow up with Us Foundation was established in 2010. The main objective of the organisation is to help the children of public service officers killed or injured on duty by providing psychological assistance and education as well as by financing schools, studies and extracurricular activities. KKZ supports the statutory activities of the foundation by providing free legal assistance to its wards.
Noble Gift to ogólnopolski projekt społeczny, którego głównym celem jest materialna i mentalna pomoc rodzinom i osobom znajdującym się w trudnej sytuacji życiowej. Pracownicy i współpracownicy KKZ, pod przewodnictwem mec. Joanny Czekaj, co roku zbierają dary i fundusze na wsparcie wybranej rodziny.
Zabiegaj o zdrowie is a local initiative of Warsaw secondary school students carried out as part of the „Zwolnieni z teorii” competition. The aim of this undertaking was to organize a charity run during which funds were raised to support the Foundation for Children “Help on Time”. Kopeć Zaborowski Law Firm supported the organization of the run from the legal side.
Company Rice is a charitable relay race created for employees of companies throughout Poland. The idea of the race is to publicize physical activity among company employees and help those that are most in need. Each year, part of the funds raised during the event is used to support one or more sick children. The race has taken place periodically since 2013 in Warsaw or Wrocław. The KKZ team has been participating in it for several years now.
The “Top500 Innovators” Association has been operational since 2013. It was established on the initiative of the graduates of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education Top 500 Innovators Programme. It aims to create an interdisciplinary platform for cooperation between representatives of scientific communities and representatives of technology transfer centres in Poland. The association’s activities include the promotion of innovative attitudes, academic entrepreneurship, promotion of the idea of cooperation between science and business and commercialization of research. KKZ supports the organisation’s statutory activities through free legal advice.
The Lawyers` Noble Gift is specialist assistance provided by lawyers – volunteers for families that are experiencing legal issues and need expert help. Our lawyers from the Department of Law for Business, with great involvement of the head of the department, mecenas Joanna Czekaj, among others, provided long-term legal assistance to one of the families by negotiating the terms of repayment of liabilities to creditors and thus enabling the family to return to normal without debts.
Associate „Wspólnymi Siłami” for lone mothers provides shelter to mothers with children, victims of domestic violence who are in a difficult financial situation. Our Employees and Co-workers collected money and gifts several times, and with the collected funds they bought household cleaning and food products needed for the organization of Christmas in the shelter.
In addition, we engage in free legal assistance for private individuals who cannot afford to cover the costs of legal services. Although we do not charge a fee for these matters, we always provide comprehensive and fully professional service. During our activity we have helped more than 50 such people.
We believe that by supporting numerous charitable activities we contribute to spreading what is good. Our lawyers also provide legal support on their own to many individuals and initiatives.
