The activity of small and medium-sized enterprises plays an important role in the development of entrepreneurship. The state undertakes a number of actions aimed at protecting their rights on the material, procedural and institutional level. The author briefly presents the rights of the Ombudsman for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in proceedings before administrative courts. The intro-duced institutional solutions from the point of view of the effectiveness of protection of the rights of small and medium enterprises are evaluated. In conclusion, the author considers the creation of a new entity for the protection of small and medium enterprises to be pointless, because its competences and tasks are a duplication of the powers of the prosecutor and the Ombudsman.
