Łaszczuk & Partners form AI Team

20 December 2023

Łaszczuk & Partners have launched a new specialization providing comprehensive legal advice related to implementation of AI-based solutions. The law firm’s offer is addressed to suppliers, importers, distributors of such tools and entrepreneurs intending to use AI.

AI-based solutions are becoming increasingly popular in business, which entails the need to evaluate their legal compliance and the risks associated with them. The firm’s AI team, which has been in place since November 2023, provides comprehensive legal advice on the implementation of AI-based solutions, including conducting audits, evaluating AI systems in terms of the risk of their use in business, drafting legally required documentation, or preparing and negotiating contracts for the supply of AI-based software.

The range of legal issues related to the application of artificial intelligence is wide, so the firm has created an interdisciplinary team combining specialists not only in artificial intelligence and new technologies law, but also in data protection, intellectual property, dispute resolution and contract law. Moreover, the AI team supports the firm’s other departments, including in projects related to the use of AI in HR, direct sales or in assessing compliance with competition law.

The AI team is headed by attorney-at-law Dr Krzysztof Riedl, the firm’s partner who also heads the civil and administrative litigation practice, specializing in civil law, alternative dispute resolution, and new technologies and privacy law. The team also includes: advocate Agnieszka Zwierzyńska specializing in new technologies, privacy and intellectual property law, as well as Michał Pietrzyk, specialist in consumer law and intellectual property law, with extensive experience in handling IT contracts.

‘The scope of the use of AI tools in business will grow intensively in the coming years, so as a law firm we want to provide our clients with comprehensive legal assistance in the implementation of such solutions. At the same time, the field of artificial intelligence continues to develop, and with it come new national and international regulations. We face a major challenge in this area. Currently, work is being finalized on an EU regulation on AI (the so-called AI Act), which, following the example of the GDPR, will require businesses to adapt their operations to the numerous obligations it provides for. Companies will have, in principle, two years from the date the AI Act comes into force to that, although some provisions will start to apply earlier. Our team will support clients in this process – both in the preparatory period and after the EU regulation and relevant national regulations come into force,’ says Dr Krzysztof Riedl.
