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).
The representatives of KG Legal took part in a series of meetings of the board of the company with Swiss capital with the authorities and scientists from a number of the Polish technical institutions, including technical universities.
The subject of the talks is to determine the possibility of creating a joint interdisciplinary project aimed at the transfer of technology. This is yet another project of KG Legal in which our lawyers on behalf of international clients within the framework of legal assistance provide help in negotiations and communication with the Polish industry, including coordination in creating R&D teams. In this way, international clients operating in such sectors as construction, bio-pharma, IT and new technologies, cooperate with the largest Polish academic centers, also with the support of the European Union funds.
On 18 April 2016 KG Legal took part in a networking meeting with the representatives of the Indonesian companies and institutions related to Indonesian – global IT industry, life science, energy, mining and construction.
B2B meetings were a part of the promotion of the British trade mission to Jakarta planned for July, in connection with the visit of the Indonesian President Joko Widodo in the UK. Our law firm was the only representative from Poland and the Indonesian entrepreneurs present at the meeting emphasized the possibility of cooperating with the Polish partners, especially in export and transfer of knowledge.
