Irena Pacholewska-Urgacz

My mission statement

I created Law First to help people resolve their legal problems, so that they can focus on achieving their personal and business goals. That is my mission.


I have over 10 years of experience gained in the largest Polish and international law firms. I fully understand my client’s needs, and am able to precisely examine the legal issues my clients have.


I was called to the bar in 2011 and have specialized in employment and HR law. I graduated in law from the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. I also have a master’s degree (Master en Droit Privé) from the University of Orleans (France).

I finished post-graduate studies in labor law at the Jagiellonian University and the school of intellectual property rights at IP Centrum. I was a scholarship holder of the Erasmus / Socrates program at the Faculty of Law of the University of Avignon (France).

I have also been published many times in the nationwide professional press.

I work in Polish and English. I also speak fluent French.

I am constantly improving my competences by taking part in courses, trainings and conferences, both domestic and international.


I work based on the highest professional and ethical standards. I persistently look for innovative legal solutions. My high degree of specialization and many years of experience are key in providing my clients with practical and effective legal advice.
