10 Years of Group Proceedings (Class Actions) In Poland
21 July 2020
Class actions have been functioning in the Polish system already for a decade. 19 July 2020 marked 10 years since the entry into force of the Act of 17 December 2009 on Pursuing Claims in Group Proceedings which introduced the class action into Polish procedural reality.
How can these ten years be summarised? We invite you to read an article by Agnieszka Trzaska-Śmieszek, partner at Kubas Kos Gałkowski, summarizing the period of functioning of class actions in Poland.
We would like to remind you that the Kubas Kos Gałkowski Law Firm is the editor of the ClassAction.pl portal, where we explain what the mechanisms of collective redress in Poland and in the world are, provide explanations of the most important concepts, and present the history of group proceedings in Poland along with the case-law of Polish courts in class actions, as well as a bibliography and our analyses and commentaries related to group proceedings.
