My expertise is based on:
From 2005 I have been actively involved in providing language services, that included interpreting and translating for public and private institutions. In course of my legal studies I have worked as a contractor for various translation companies, providing language support in courts, hospitals, solicitors offices and barristers chambers, Home Office, Trading Standard, working along judges on criminal matters, police, informal meetings as well I did translate criminal trial bundles, generosity of Legal Service Commission (LSE). I continue to provide these services until present day.
In private legal practice I have acted in litigations in property related matters, breach of contract, employment related disputes, commercial and business matters, and I also specialised in all legal matters related to licensing. I have cooperated with various solicitor’s law firms, privately instructed barristers, and other legal personnel. My work consist of both, accepting instructions and referrals and instructing and referring to. I have experience in dealing with various branches of government, private law firms and charitable organisations in London as well in Poland. In legal practice quite often I am appointed to advise on legal matters in relation to Polish citizens in the United Kingdom. I accept instructions from Polish law firms back in Poland as well as British law firms and private individuals.
My professional experience in government legal sector started from October 2008 during which time I have worked as a caseworker for one of London’s Law Centre, and then until August 2010 I was employed with Local Authority in Ealing. In addition form October 2008 until February 2012 I was a Legal Advisor / Caseworker for Advice Programme in Ealing and from November 2009 until February 2013 I was an Executive Member of Ealing Equality Council. Parallel to my inside government legal experience I have actively managed my own and contracted work load, in various areas of law.
I am familiar with British legislative process – government papers, government consultations, House of Commons and House of Lords. I have read several government papers, before they reached House of Commons for a vote as well as government consultations on many matters, like House of Lords Selective Committee on the Licensing Act 2003. By far my best legal entertainment derives from live broadcasts of various committees hearings (both USA and UK) and of course the old, good House of Commons debates directly from so charming chambers, even though they are all scripted it is always some form of theatre performances without a ticket – to disagree to agree in public is interestingly being delivered to the public. During my study I have been reading one of most notable judgements delivered by House of Lords judges, notable one of Lord Denning, Lord Ashford, Lord Morrison. Lord Kirkham. Viscount Sankey once stated: ‘Throughout the web of English criminal law one golden thread is always to be seen, that is the duty of the prosecution to prove the prisoner’s guilt’. My professional knowledge is mainly based on legislation, common law judgements and Blackstone’s Statutes. One of most proficient legislation to be drafted is undoubtedly, next to Magna Carta, Fisheries Act 1981, as repealed, and subsequent United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, section 1, article 2 – legal status of the territorial sea , of the air space over the territorial sea and of its bed and subsoil as well as the notion the right of innocent passage through the territorial sea. If one doesn’t understand the provisions of Fisheries Act then one certainly is incapable of understanding the meaning of life and saying: it does not affect the price of fish. Moreover, Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples is quite amusing. Likewise, I am highly fond of the provisions as laid down in Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies. From more earthy legislation my knowledge is based on International Law Documents, Statutes on Public Law and Human Rights, Commercial and Consumer law legislation, Statutes on EU Treaties and Legislation. Vast majority of projects that I do indeed undertake is the interpretation of contracting parties rights and obligations and drafting legally binging agreements.
