Various sports passions of the LSW team have inspired the creation of the LSW Sport section.
It is a place for exchanging information about successes, sharing experiences and a database of knowledge about our training methods. However, LSW Sport is primarily a field of initiating joint sports activities, which we encourage you to follow. We also invite you to join us!
However, sport is not only an individual passion for us. It is also a part of our business.
We work for athletes, we understand their needs. We know what sport looks like in Poland and abroad. Neither professional sport nor broadly understood sports business can function anywhere without competent lawyers.
LSW Sport connects both worlds. We draw inspiration from the hard work of athletes, admire them and give them support wherever they need it. And most of all, we like doing it.
That is why in this area we combine professional work and personal passions, which we infect others with. To be a better athlete is to be a better person. In business, sport and law the best are those who love what they do.

2,294 kilometres - this is the distance between Warsaw and Madrid. This is exactly the number of hours that the charity relay of the rowing regatta #All To Row2015 sailed on six ergometers.

The regatta was attended by disabled people - the organisers prepared ergometers adapted especially for their needs.
