Civil Procedure in Poland: Separate Proceedings In Commercial Matters Reinstated

    View Author July 2019

Time will tell whether or not it does. Our previous alert has already featured the key amendments, now we present certain amendments, emphasizing the institutions previously unknown to commercial matters and even not hitherto existing in the civil procedure.
