The "PRETOR" Law Office offers help with the assertion of claims in Poland as well as with the recognition of the foreign courts` decisions in Poland. Although the decisions conducted by foreign courts (European, US, etc.) have no legal power in Poland, they can be given a legal effect after completing a specific procedure called the recognition of the foreign court decision. Only then the execution of the claim in Poland is possible and can be enforced by law.
Example: The debtor has a real estate of great value in Poland. Its creditor would like to levy an execution in Poland but has only a foreign court decision.
Our law firm focuses on the recognition of the EU Member States court decisions which is easier than the procedure related to non-EU decisions (EU Regulation 2001/44 of 22 December 2000 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters).
Legal representation in courts - thanks to European Union regulations it is very common that a foreign individual or firm is sued before a Polish court. In this case a local legal representation is very crucial. We offer a legal representation before all Polish courts in almost all legal suits.
