Damian Klimas

I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals and a holder of CIPP/E and CIPM certificates documenting my data protection knowledge and experience. I am the head of a work group of co-administrators for contact tracing at the e-Zdrowie [e-Health] network based on the Executive Decision of the Commission (EU) 2010/1023.

I teach courses in servicing legal databases, personal data protection and access to public information at the University of Wrocław. I was also a member of a team implementing the GDPR at one of Poland’s largest banks. GDPR implementation took me hundreds of hours. I trained several hundred people in personal data protection. 

I represent the contractor in work on the STOP COVID – ProteGO Safe mobile app, which involves large-scale data processing. I support the Chancellery of the President of the Ministers’ Council in drafting documents (DPIA) and consultations with the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection and international bodies (eHealth Network). 

I also practice law as a personal data inspector, including at entities providing telemed, healthcare and health protection services.

I am particularly interested in the impact of new technologies on our privacy.

Michał Skrzywanek

I am a legal counsel, member of the Federation of the European Bars and Deputy Chairman of the Commission for New Technologies and Digital Transformation of the Regional Chamber of Legal Counsels in Wrocław. My experience is rich and diverse – before founding dotlaw, I worked for several years for the largest Polish law offices, advising entities such as PGNiG, Pracuj.pl, Gemius, UNIT4 Polska and Veolia Energia Polska. For several years, I have been running workshops and training in compliance, new tech law, and attending conferences devoted to these topics. I was awarded best speaker among the law students in Poland and OIRP in Wrocław on many occasions.

I was a member of a team launching the largest Polish crowdfunding platform in collaboration with an international payment operator (advising on the IP, compliance and AMI and PSD2 regulatory issues). At present, in the same capital group, I advise the largest Polish distributor of fiction games, assisting developers in understanding the nuances of the Polish IP law.

In 2020, I took part in the Legal Hackathon in Warsaw. Together with programmers, UX experts, graphic designers and lawyers, we developed software based on the Legal Design concept that visualised complicated legal contracts and presented them to users with friendly and simplified content and language. This experience particularly inspires to continuously test and implement new technologies. The new technologies automate the day-to-day work of lawyers, as well as our clients, and make our life and theirs simpler.

Outside of my work responsibilities, I collaborate on civic pro-bono projects with the Human Rights and Law and Order Commission of the Regional Chamber of Legal Counsels in Wrocław, and I am a field plenipotentiary of the Ombudsman. I particularly enjoy working with young people on educational projects, advising artists in disputes over freedom of speech and expression, and helping refugees.
