Polish truck owners can claim damages as a result of truck cartel in the EU — KG Legal cooperates with German and Dutch law firms to file the lawsuit in Germany and the Netherlands

Kartel “ciężarówkowy”

Kancelaria KG LEGAL poszukuje przedsiębiorstw/firm, które w latach 1997-2011 dokonały zakupu średnich (6-16 ton) lub ciężkich (powyżej 16 ton) samochodów ciężarowych z Europejskiego Obszaru Gospodarczego (EOG). (English version below)

Wspólnie z kancelariami z Holandii i Niemiec będziemy dochodzili odszkodowań w tamtejszych jurysdykcjach, jest to o tyle korzystne dla polskich firm, że nie będzie konieczne wniesienie własnego wkładu finansowego (jak miałoby to miejsce w polskiej jurysdykcji). Ponadto holenderska kancelaria zapewnia ubezpieczenie procesu, tak więc nic Państwo nie tracą.

Pozew zbiorowy zostanie złożony w związku ze sprawą dotyczącą europejskiego kartelu „ciężarówkowego”. W ubiegłym roku Komisja Europejska (KE) nałożyła rekordowe kary o łącznej wartości 2,93 miliarda euro na czołowych producentów ciężarówek, którzy w latach 1997-2011 ustalali ceny brutto średnich i ciężkich ciężarówek oraz „przerzucili” na klienta koszty wprowadzenia nowych silników spełniających ekologiczne normy unijne.

Prosimy o kontakt, jeśli są Państwo zainteresowani współpracą.

Truck cartel

KG LEGAL law firm is searching for companies, that purchased medium (6-16 t) or heavy (over 16 t) trucks from European Economic Area from 1997 to 2011.

Together with law firms from the Netherlands and Germany we will pursue claims in their jurisdictions, which is advantageous for Polish companies, since there will not be necessary to make a financial contribution (as would be in the Polish jurisdiction). Moreover, the Dutch law firm will ensure trial insurance, so you do not lose anything.

The class action will be filed in relation to “European truck cartel” case. Last year, the European Commission imposed a record fine of € 2 926 499 000 on the leading trucks producers and revealed that this cartel is relating to:

  • coordinating prices at “gross list” level for medium and heavy trucks
  • the timing for the introduction of emission technologies
  • the passing on to customers of the costs for the emissions technologies in new engines required to comply with the increasingly strict European emissions standards.

The Commission also stated that “any person or firm affected by anti-competitive behaviour as described in this case may bring the matter before the courts of the Member States and seek damages”.

If you are interested in cooperation please contact us.

XIV Polish Conference on Medical Robots

KG Legal will participate in the International “Medical Robots 2016” conference that will be held on 9th-10th December 2016 in Zabrze. The conference is organized by the International Society for Medical Robotics and the Professor Zbigniew Religa Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development.

The pioneer of the development of cardiac surgery in Poland was professor Zbigniew Religa, who performed the first successful heart transplant in Poland after several failed attempts. To describe how hard it was, because of the outdated equipment and lack of funds we can present you this photograph taken by James Stansfield that shows Religa keeping watch on the vital signs of a patient after a 23 hour heart surgery. The bloody mess, tangled cables and the Religa’s assistant sleeping in the corner – all of these things make this photo so special, that National Geographic chose this as the best picture of 1987 and it is considered as one of the most iconic photos in history.

During the conference a progress of surgery robot Robin Heart project development will be demonstrated. Robin Heart is a Polish surgical robot constructed by scientist from the Professor Zbigniew Religa Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development.


The information was prepared by Kamil Trzaskoś of KG Legal Polish Law Firm. KG Legal provides specialised legal assistance to IT, Life Science as well as investment processes in Poland and organises networking between Polish and international companies and research centres.
