On 7 July 2016 Attorney Małgorzata Kiełtyka and attorney Kazimierz Jakub Gładkowski took part in the Programme Council of the Krakow’s Foundation LifeScience Cluster. KG Legal, having the status of “silver membership” in the Cluster took part in the vote on the new Programme Council of the Cluster, which includes, among others, academic staff and managers of the best Polish medical universities, R&D entities as well as the leading Polish medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
The presence of Polish nationals in Great Britain necessitates constant cooperation of British law firms with KG Legal in employment matters. This is due to the fact that the settlements concluded outside Poland need to be approved by the Polish civil court, in case a party to such a settlement is a Polish citizen (or Polish business entity). Our law firm provided assistance in a cross-border employment case in which there was concluded a settlement before the Labour Dispute Conciliation Committee (ACAS) in London. In the light of the Polish civil procedure the institution of this type should be regarded as an equivalent to the arbitration court. The recognition or declaration of enforceability of an arbitration award issued abroad or a settlement reached before the arbitration court abroad is decided by the Polish civil court after conducting the hearing (Art. 1215 § 1 of the Civil Procedure Code).
