Benedykt Fiutowski

benedykt-fiutowski-bigEver since I can remember I wanted to become a judge and consistently I started my studies on Law Faculty at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, after that I started my judicial training. However, my determination in this area was not great enough and after I passed the judicial exam I realised that I was more fascinated by practising law in the office environment. Since then I was certain that I would rather be an advisor than a judge. That is why I passed my bar exam in 1995 and I started my practice as an litigator which has been ongoing since then.

Since 2004 I am a Partner in Budzowska Fiutowski & Partners. Legal Counsels (BFP) with its registered office in Kraków.

I am a typical litigator. Having more than 20 years of experience that is build up on uncounted numbers of trials, meetings and negotiations I appreciate the experience that let me notice elements that at first glance seem to be irrelevant, however after years they turn out to be crucial for clients. I am specialised in the commercial law and thanks to the cooperation with overseas lawyers within the Litigation and ADR Group that is the part of the Eurojuris International based in Brussels I continuously develop my knowledge about the European law and about the internal legislation of other EU member states.

Due to my wide litigation experience I was appointed in 2013 to the Team of mediation in the Economic Affairs that was established by The Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Justice. From 10th September 2015 the said team prepared the project of legal act promoting amicable dispute resolution in Poland which entered into force on 1 January 2016.
