Abstract. In the second decade of the XXI century, the rapid growth of service offshoring industry can be observed in Poland and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Such international corporate transformations wield significant influence on economies and societies of the states involved. The legal issues regulating international services migrations are among the most demanding managerial challenges at the pre- transition phase (i.e. before the commencement of a transition project which is supposed  to  successfully relocate processes from one country to another), and are directly linked to the sociological and economic aspects of the multidimensional changes in transnational business environments. The paper presents the review of selected legal issues regulating international process transfers within the European Union (EU), in the light of the economic and social conditions that are important for the offshoring industry’s managerial community at the pre-transition phase.
