Family Foundations in Poland

The Polish Parliament works on a law on family foundations. New in Polish law, the institution of a family foundation is expected to improve the legal environment for the succession of family businesses.

Family businesses make up a large portion of Polish companies established in Poland over the past 30 years, and the new legislation aims to facilitate succession and the continued smooth operation of family businesses, without the need for foreign legal solutions.
