Leniency programme

Area of expertise

A company that has entered into a competition-restricting agreement (horizontal or vertical) may apply for full or partial leniency if it admits its participation in the illegal agreement and provides the Polish Competition Authority with information and evidence confirming the existence of the practice.

A leniency application can also be filed by a manager who has contributed to his or her company’s violation of the Competition Act.


Hansberry Tomkiel has extensive experience in preparing leniency applications and guiding clients through the required and lengthy process of cooperation with UOKiK.

Equally, the Law Firm is experienced in defending clients before UOKiK and the courts in cases in which a leniency applicant has provided evidence against a client of the Firm.
