On 13 August 2018 WKB Aleksandra Libiszowska, advocate specialising in EU funds, joined WKB as counsel and a member of the State Aid & EU Funds team.
Aleksandra Libiszowska specialises in EU funds law and EU-funded public procurement. She provides comprehensive legal advice on the implementation of projects by fund beneficiaries, advises at the stage of obtaining co-financing, and supports entities responsible for fund implementation.
Aleksandra has gained professional experience while working as head of legal for an intermediate body responsible for the implementation of EU programmes (primarily the Operational Programme Digital Poland and the Operational Programme Innovative Economy). By handling legal and public procurement matters, she provided comprehensive advice and supported beneficiaries in the realisation of projects.

Furthermore, Aleksandra was a member of the Ministry of Digitalisation’s team responsible for updating the National Integrated Informatisation Programme, and participated in the legislative work leading to the amendment of the so-called Implementation Law. As a member of the audit council, she supervised the operation of a state budget unit responsible for the implementation and control of ICT systems at the central and regional levels.
