Bank account funds. Who is entitled to what after the testator’s death?

Publication date: January 11, 2024

Obtaining information about the account and payment of the contribution in the event of the bank account holder’s death is often a considerable problem for heirs or administrators of the estate. Problems are caused not only by procedural requirements, but often also by banks themselves, which have little to gain from fulfilling their obligations towards authorized persons, but a lot to lose. From the economic point of view – financial resources which – although given to the bank under a repayable title – constitute the basis of its lending activities, from the legal point of view – venturing into the thicket of inheritance regulations and in many cases – the circle of heirs is difficult to determine, and it is easy to stumble, and thus, there are also problems with banking supervision. Therefore, banks are very reluctant to perform their duties, often multiplying problems and procedural requirements. It is therefore worth knowing when the bank should and when it cannot provide information about the account or withdraw funds from it.

Polish judicial protection tools for the sale of real estate in international bankruptcy – case study and suggested solutions

In the Polish legal system, it is possible to extend bankruptcy declared abroad to Polish jurisdiction. In accordance with the amendment to the Polish Bankruptcy Law, which came into force on January 1, 2016, the provisions of the Act update the possibility of recognizing judgments initiating foreign bankruptcy proceedings. This is related, among other things, to increased emphasis on the universality of bankruptcy proceedings, especially in European Union countries. Pursuant to Article 19 of Regulation 2015/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council, “a judgment opening insolvency proceedings issued by a court of a Member State having jurisdiction in accordance with Art. 3 shall be recognized in all other Member States (…).” The phrase “having jurisdiction in accordance with Art. 3” – art. 3 of the Regulation reads: “1. The courts of the Member State in whose territory the debtor’s center of main interests is situated have jurisdiction to open insolvency proceedings – the main insolvency proceedings. The main bankruptcy proceedings are considered to be proceedings initiated in the country where the principal center of the debtor’s main activities is located (Article 3(1) of the Regulation)[1].


Changes in Polish crowdfunding provisions (from November 10, 2023)

Publication date: January 05, 2024

Access to capital and its acquisition is the key to the development of every enterprise. It may be easier for larger, more established companies to raise capital from investors or obtain additional money from lenders. However, some companies may encounter obstacles that may slow down their growth. This is especially true for small businesses and startups, where crowdfunding can be helpful.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding involves using small amounts of money from a large number of people to fund a new business. It leverages easy access to vast networks of people through social media and crowdfunding sites to connect investors and entrepreneurs and connect traditional owners, relatives and venture capitalists. It offers the potential to increase entrepreneurship by expanding the pool of investors beyond the circle. Crowdfunding means an alternative form of funding, which is particularly popular among start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises. The main reason for this is the informalization of procedures and high flexibility of operating rules.

How does crowdfunding work?

On 25 October 2023, KIELTYKA GLADKOWSKI took part in the seminar organised by Sayari on Russia Export Controls and Dual-Use Technology: Mitigating Diversion Risk.

Russia continues to rely on Western-manufactured dual-use technology to produce advanced weapons systems and rearm its military. And while a number of countries have taken steps to curb the exporting of critical technology to Russian end users, public reporting, recent designations, and law enforcement actions shed light on intricate sanctions evasion schemes designed to procure needed technology.

The seminar analysed Russian trade data and discussed recent trends in dual-use technology procurement, and demonstrated how regulators and industry can leverage public and commercially available data to mitigate end-user risk and enhance enforcement.
