"Energy security is one of those concepts, which everyone seems to know. The problem starts when the lights go out"

"The idea of civic energy sector and energy cooperatives seems to be an answer that responds to the social and financial problems encountered in the development of local energy industry"

"Modern economy and energy require an approach that is open to the discourse and participation of different actors at all levels of decision-making"

"Monopolisation does not serve the state, economy or citizens. Monopolisation serves monopolies"

"My day-watchman state is the centre ground occupying a place between interventionism and laissez-faire"

"I'm fascinated by watching how much we owe to electricity. How much we owe to Tesla, Edison and many other precursors of its use"

"The problem of long-term planning in economy is that it is long-term. Its creators do not think about implementation - the contractors bear in mind the planning process"

    The range of my activities is always set with the counterparty and profiled in terms of requirements of the client. This may concern both the description of the problems, finding solutions, providing a synthesis of the activities, elaborating scenarios, and conducting a typical legal analysis expanded on the elements of economic studies. I am open to the model and the nature of the cooperation, which I adapt to your needs and expectations.

  • My experience

    I deal with economy, law and energy as well as international cooperation not only from the business perspective. I have written a number of scientific publications – papers and books, in which I analysed the above-mentioned topics.

    These issues are covered by my academic activity, i.e. they appear in my lectures and classes, and they are also represented in my public activity (speeches at conferences and debates or comments for the media). More on this can be found in the sections News, Publications, Media, or in my blog and YouTube channel.

    My experience is based on work carried out for business’ and public administration. In my actions, I try to combine elements of law and economics. I do not limit myself only to the Polish market, I am also very active internationally. More in About Me.
