KG Legal Polish Law Firm – cross border legal problems in public procurement

Flaga RumuniiKG Legal cooperates with Romanian law firms specializing in Romanian public procurement law on behalf of the Polish entrepreneur operating in civil engineering infrastructure.

Polish construction companies more increasingly take part in tenders under public procurement in the Balkans. Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that Polish entrepreneurs have legal problems in obtaining the contracts. In such cases there arises the need to be provided with cross border legal services. Normally the latter takes place in the form of a cooperation between the Polish law firm and a foreign law firm from a given jurisdiction. When the Polish entrepreneur takes part in a tender organized by the Romanian public entity, the legal advice for such a company requires the support of a Polish lawyer specializing in international contract law as well as the assistance of Romanian lawyers specializing in Romanian public procurement law.

KG Legal advises a British employer on the approval by the Polish court of the UK settlement in respect of the employee’s claims – the value of the settlement 0.5 million PLN

IMG_7425The 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).
