The article by partner Przemyslaw Wierzbicki and senior associate Adam Tula on the legal liability of entities using “short-selling”, published on Bankier.pl, is an important voice in the discussion sparked by the Hindenburg Research report on LPP, resulting in several dozen percent drops in LPP's share price. In the U.S. and Western Europe, the phenomenon of “short - selling activism” (investors actively playing for “short sales”) has long become an everyday occurrence. In our country we have encountered such a phenomenon for the first time - as in the past in Western countries, also in our country it has caused an angry discussion between “standard” investors and proponents of pure speculation and demands for all sorts of legal consequences. But perhaps it is worth taking a broader look and considering how this phenomenon works in countries that have this shock stage behind them? Is it really the case that “short-selling activism” always involves a violation of the law?

Bank and insurance guarantees, now used in virtually every sector of the economy, are one of the fastest and surest ways to secure the claims of guarantee beneficiaries. However, these guarantees are also sometimes the source of often complicated and multifaceted litigation. The court cases against them, most often relate to demands for payment made by the beneficiaries of the guarantees against the guarantors, or the return claims of the issuers of guarantees to the principals, which arose after the guarantors made payments from the guarantees.

Civil procedure is the branch of law that has the greatest impact on the daily life of the “average citizen.” Virtually everyone, sooner or later, will come into contact with a civil court on the occasion of such “life” matters as the declaration of inheritance, the proverbial “dispute over property”, or the division of property. Therefore, it is very important to interpret the norms of procedural law, which often causes a lot of problems for both professional trial attorneys and courts.

A bid security is known to every contractor participating in public tenders. However, not every contractor knows when a bid bond can be retained by the contracting authority.

Sanctions have become an integral part of international relations. Virtually every company, especially those operating in the global market, has experienced or is about to experience the impact of sanctions on its business. It is therefore important to recognize the risks associated with sanctions early on and to effectively safeguard against them. It is also important to formulate the sanctions clause in such a way as to ensure its effectiveness and preclude the possibility of challenging its validity in a possible litigation with a counterparty.

The sanction of free credit appeared in the Polish legal order with the entry into force of the Law of July 20, 2001 on consumer credit. From the beginning, the institution gave the borrower the right (after making an appropriate declaration) to repay the loan without interest in the situation of the lender's failure to fulfill certain obligations against the background of the construction of the loan agreement. Currently, the regulation finds its counterpart in Article 45 of the new Law on Consumer Credit, in force since December 18, 2011. Both of the aforementioned laws had their origin in the implementation of the obligation to harmonize national and EU legislation.

Allegation of deduction of claims in civil litigation - the literature of the law diverges from judicial practice. The culprit of the confusion is Article 2031 of the Code of Civil Procedure, which deals with the procedural allegation of deduction. It is a tool for safeguarding the rights of both creditors and debtors. However, according to the case law so far, the courts' doubts are raised by the vague wording of this regulation, which makes it difficult for the parties to clearly interpret to what extent to effectively apply the provisions on deduction. The legislator in the latest amendment to the Code of Civil Procedure of July 7, 2023 has not removed all the problems.

In the previous state of the law, if the defendant failed to publish a court-ordered apology, the provisions on the enforcement of substitutable actions, as stipulated in Article 1049 of the Code of Civil Procedure, were applied. In practice, this meant that a person whose personal rights had been violated could publish an apology in the media himself at the expense of the defendant, who evaded this obligation. This solution is a consequence of the Supreme Court's Resolution of June 28, 2006, ref: III CZP 23/06. Interestingly, until the adoption of the aforementioned Resolution, the judicature, as well as the doctrine, unanimously took the position that the execution of a judgment ordering the submission of a statement of appropriate content and form takes place exclusively on the basis of Article 1050 of the Code of Civil Procedure, indicating that this is an irreplaceable action.

Reconstruction is a type of construction work that, despite its definition in the Construction Law of July 7, 1994, in practice repeatedly poses difficulties in qualifying specific works to this category. Problems often arise in distinuishing the reconstruction of a building from its expansion or renovation. Meanwhile, the correct qualification of construction works is crucial in order to determine whether the performance of the planned works requires a prior construction permit, or perhaps a notification is sufficient. It may also turn out that neither a construction permit nor even a notification of the works will be necessary to carry out the works. Therefore, the proper qualification of the works makes it possible to determine the type of formalities to be completed before the start of the works, and consequently in the future to avoid problems associated, for example, with the execution of works without the required permit or notification.

Despite relatively frequent amendments to the Civil Code, the wording of the provision on exploitation has changed only for the first time since 1964. The disposition of the provision of Article 388 § 1 of the Civil Code was supplemented by a new premise, i.e. the lack of sufficient discernment of the other party about the subject of the contract, which seems to be the most significant and dangerous change. The legislator has de facto defined the concept of performance grossly exceeding the value of the consideration, which significantly modifies the issue of the distribution of the burden of proof in the event of possible litigation. There has also been an increase in the time within which the rights provided by the amended provision can be exercised. The time limits now correspond to the general statute of limitations for claims under Article 118 of the Civil Code.

The construction industry is currently on the brink of exhaustion. The market first struggled with the effects of the pandemic, and now the industry is also suffering from the far-reaching effects of the war in Ukraine. The main problem for the construction sector is, first of all, the sharp and significant increase in the price of construction materials, the reduction in the availability of raw materials, the exodus of a workforce composed largely of Ukrainian citizens. All this means that previously concluded construction contracts not only do not bring a profit, but additionally companies have to add to their investments.

An article by partner Przemysław Wierzbicki Artificial Intelligence Algorithms and Competition Law has been published on iTWIZ. This article addresses the fact that more and more competition authorities are recognizing the problems that the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions or automated olgorithms may pose for competition law. Particularly "risky" is software in which pricing information or key business data may be exchanged or agreed upon. Companies developing or providing this type of solutions should take these concerns into account, because more and more often penalties for participating in collusion are imposed also on IT companies "involved" in it. We invite you to read more.

In the public space, there is more and more talk about banks' initiatives to negotiate settlements with borrowers who entered into credit agreements indexed or denominated in foreign currencies (in siple terms, the so - called "franking" loans). The long duration of court proceedings in disputes over the franking rates and the still uncertain outcome argue that for borrowers, concluding a settlement is a very beneficial solution: it saves time, expenses and stress. However, more and more often we hear information that supposedly discourages borrowers from making a settlement - it is worthwhile for borrowers to make up their own mind whether such voices have any basis and whether they can be at all credible.

The new public procurement law reinforces the importance of technical dialogue- now under the name of preliminary market consultation.

The Simplified Restructuring Procedure (SPR) is a fresh instrument in the Polisg legal system, introduced by the so-called Shield Act 4.0 and referring to the provisions of the Restructuring Law in the proceedings for approval of an arrangement. Many companies in financial trouble seem to think that after the opening of the SPR they are safe as far as bankruptcy petitions filed by their creditors are concerned. Unfortunately the following analysis shows that this point is at least doubtful — moreover there are serious arguments that the opening of SPR does not preclude a bankruptcy filing by a creditor.

We are pleased to announce that on January 23, 2019, the District Court for Warsaw-Mokotów issued a favorable verdict regarding the CHF-indexed loan agreement for the Bank represented by our law office. In this case, the borrower, in seeking payment from the Bank, questioned the contractual indexation clauses underlying the conversion of the tranches of the loan, as well as the basis for the conversion of capital and interest installments repaid by the borrower. The court took into account the claim of the borrower only in a small part, and thus as to the vast majority of the claimed principal receivables, the client of our Law Firm won the trial. It is interesting that - according to our knowledge - about a month earlier, the Court in an identical composition issued in a case with very similar facts, according to which the indexed loan agreement is invalid due to the abusiveness of indexation clauses. Therefore, the position of the judge-clerk was changed in matters crucial to the resolution of such cases - which resulted in a decision favorable for the Bank we represent. We are happy that we could have been involved in the success of our client.
