Douglas Graeme Hogg is a qualified English solicitor, licensed to practice law in Poland. He has 14 years’ post-qualification experience in top UK and international law firms. He also has an MSc in Psychology and MA (with distinction) in European Politics from Durham University. A fluent Polish speaker, he has worked for the European Parliament, European Commission and Polish Government regarding Poland’s EU accession and often acts as an expert on English law for the Polish courts and expert Polish-English translator of Polish, English and EU legislation. Graeme spends half his time in London and half in Poland, managing and conducting cases in both jurisdictions often involving complex matters of jurisdiction, tax and cross-border relations.
Sterling Legal advised me on how to terminate co-ownership of a Polish property in Polish law. After filing all the documents, he negotiated a settlement with the co-owners that achieved my aims without years of litigation in the Polish courts. Graeme Hogg was a great help and as a UK solicitor and fluent Polish speaker, we did not need a sworn translator either.
English property investor in Krakow, Poland
Sterling Legal drafted all the documents for me to claim bankruptcy in Poland after I foolishly guaranteed a 1.5m PLN loan. In 3 years I will be released from bankruptcy and can return to normal employment. I recommend Graeme Hogg for his honesty and friendly approach to clients.
Shelly – Warsaw, Poland (US ex-pat)
Sterling helped me sell a share in a block of flats in Krakow. They helped me break the impasee with co-owners, negotiated an above market price for my share and organised the conveyance from beginning to end, using trusted valuers, notaries and sworn translators. I was particularly impressed with Graeme’s negotiating skills and standards of client care.
