CORPORATE CLIENT DESK – cross border enforcement of payment order

KG Legal provides legal assistance to a Swedish client trying to enforce the payment from the Polish debtor — Polish company, based on a Swedish judgement. The dispute concerns the application of the Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgements in civil and commercial matters. The crucial legal issues related with the case involve the need to obtain the certificate on the enforceability of the foreign judgment, the scope of enforcement and the possibility of enforcing the legal costs incurred in Sweden in obtaining the judgment against the Polish debtor.
