Whom Would You Be Without Your Morals?
We should use the power of law to protect humanity and live in harmony with nature.
I help people and businesses to avoid illegal, environmentally-damaging or unethical products/services.
Sustainable Law is a new legal area that combines public law with private
and commercial law, and includes laws and regulations that implement a more
sustainable economy and aim to raise awareness or sanction actions that have a
harmful impact on the environment.
An important part of Sustainable Law is the
precise definition of the term "sustainability", which I understand
as the balancing of economy, business and law, and we do not mean sustainable
development, because it does not solve existing problems. It is an outdated
notion that does not correspond to current needs.
I focus on promoting
regenerative approaches that provide regenerative economics solutions. However,
I use the term "sustainability" because the term "regenerative"
is still unfamiliar to a wider audience.
Sustainable Law includes international treaties as well as national or
supra-national laws. Environmental issues are high on the agenda, particularly
global, regional and local initiatives to address climate change. Recognizing
the connectivity of issues, Sustainable Law goes beyond the more established
environmental law focus on physical impacts on nature to encompass a wide range
of economic activities in finance, technology and services that, while having
limited direct impact on the environment, can have significant indirect
Sustainable Law is interdisciplinary and transgressive, not least in its
expectation that sustainability is integrated into all economic activities,
bringing together economics, science and legal perspectives on the development
of a regenerative, solidarity-based, socially responsible and ethical economy.
In this way, the law is part of commercial law, which is relevant to most
sectors of the economy. My areas of expertise include also fashion law, food law and cosmetic law.
My activity includes agri-food, REACH, cosmetics issues consultancy at the national as well as international level as a senior associate in International Law and Italian Desk in Law Firm Staniszewski&Associates in Poznań, and of counsel in Food Law Department in
MepLaw in Rome. I am especially interested in food law and consumer protection (public and private law issues), so I provide conscious legal assistance with other experts in the area of food, fashion and NewTechLaw. Since 2008 I have been actively expanding my knowledge in international corporate law. For the last three years, I have been dealing actively with eco_couching, less waste office solutions, sustainability, including support in organizing events in a pro-environmental spirit. A very important aspect of my work is ethics, compliance, and transparency of activities. Since December 2019 I am also a President of we&waste association and strongly support local production, natural solutions, slow life, minimalism, regenerative agriculture, solidarity economy, fair trade, and lean management.
I am interested in the culture of the Middle East, the Balkans, as well as the Caucasus. Likewise, I love unplanned journeys to unknown places full of scents, colours and unique tastes. Not only that, but I meet natives, go shopping at the local market away from tourists. I have always liked learning new foreign languages. I am fluent in Polish, English, Italian, Spanish and German. Currently, I dedicate my free time to the Turkish language.
